http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/indexes/documentation/index.html

2 Logging In to the System as root

Before you install the Oracle software, you must complete several tasks as the root user. To log in as the root user, complete one of the following procedures:

Note:

You must install the software from an X Window System workstation, an X terminal, or a PC or other system with X server software installed
  • Following are the steps for installing the software from an X Window System workstation or X terminal:

    1. Start a local terminal session, for example, an X terminal (xterm).

    2. If you are not installing the software on the local system, then enter the following command to enable the remote host to display X applications on the local X server:

      $ xhost fully_qualified_remote_host_name
      

      For example:

      $ xhost somehost.us.example.com
      
    3. If you are not installing the software on the local system, then use the ssh, rlogin, or telnet command to connect to the system where you want to install the software:

      $ telnet fully_qualified_remote_host_name
      
    4. If you are not logged in as the root user, then enter the following command to switch user to root:

      $ su -
      password:
      #
      
  • Following are the steps for installing the software from a PC or other system with X server software:

    Note:

    If necessary, refer to your X server documentation, or contact your X server vendor or system administrator for more information about completing this procedure. Depending on the X server software that you are using, you may need to complete the tasks in a different order.
    1. Start the X server software.

    2. Configure the security settings of the X server software to permit remote hosts to display X applications on the local system.

    3. Connect to the remote system where you want to install the software and start a terminal session on that system, for example, an X terminal (xterm).

    4. If you are not logged in as the root user on the remote system, then enter the following command to switch user to root:

      $ su -
      password:
      #
      

3 Configuring Servers for Oracle Database

This section describes the following operating system tasks that you must complete before you install Oracle Database:

3.1 Checking Server Hardware and Memory Configuration

Run the following commands to check your current system information:

  1. To determine the physical RAM size, enter the following command:

    # /usr/contrib/bin/machinfo  | grep -i Memory
    
  2. To determine the size of the configured swap space, enter the following command:

    # /usr/sbin/swapinfo -a
    

    If necessary, see your operating system documentation for information about how to configure additional swap space.

    Note:

    • Oracle recommends that you take multiple values for the available RAM and swap space before finalizing a value. This is because the available RAM and swap space keep changing depending on the user interactions with the computer.

    • Contact your operating system vendor for swap space allocation guidance for your server. The vendor guidelines supersede the swap space requirements listed in this guide.

  3. To determine the amount of disk space available in the /tmp directory, enter the following command:

    # bdf /tmp
    

    If the free space available in the /tmp directory is less than what is required, then complete one of the following steps:

    • Delete unnecessary files from the /tmp directory to meet the disk space requirement.

    • Set the TMP and TMPDIR environment variables when setting the oracle user's environment.

    • Extend the file system that contains the /tmp directory.

  4. To determine the amount of free disk space on the system, enter the following command:

    # bdf
    
  5. To determine if the system architecture can run the software, enter the following command:

    # uname -m
    

    Verify that the processor architecture matches the Oracle software release to install. For example, you should see the following for a x86-64 bit system:

    ia64 (itanium)
    

    If you do not see the expected output, then you cannot install the software on this system.

  6. To view the shared memory kernel parameters (shmmni, shmseg, and shmmax) and determine if any changes are necessary for your system., run the following command:

    # kctune -v shmmni
    # kctune -v shmseg
    # kctune -v shmmax
    

    Use the kctune shmmni=1024 command to set the memory kernel parameter to the required value.

3.2 General Server Minimum Requirements

Ensure the following general minimum requirements on your system:

  • Ensure that the system is started with run level 3.

  • Ensure display cards provide at least 1024 x 768 display resolution, so that Oracle Universal Installer displays correctly while performing a system console-based installation.

3.3 Server Storage Minimum Requirements

Ensure that your system meets the following storage requirements:

  • Ensure that your system meets the disk space requirement for software files described in the following table:

    Table 1 Disk Space Requirements for Software Files on HP-UX Itanium Systems

    Installation Type Disk Space (GB)

    Enterprise Edition

    7.4

    Standard Edition

    7.2

    Standard Edition One

    7.2


  • At least 1 GB of space in the /tmp directory.

    If the free space available in the /tmp directory is less than what is required, then complete one of the following steps:

    • Delete unnecessary files from the /tmp directory to meet the disk space requirement.

    • Set the TMP and TMPDIR environment variables when setting the oracle user's environment.

    • Extend the file system that contains the /tmp directory.

3.4 Server Memory Minimum Requirements

Ensure that your system meets the following memory requirements:

Minimum: 1 GB of RAM

Recommended: 2 GB of RAM or more

The following table describes the relationship between installed RAM and the configured swap space recommendation:

4 Reviewing Operating System Security Common Practices

Secure operating systems are an important basis for general system security. Ensure that your operating system deployment is in compliance with common security practices as described in your operating system vendor security guide.

5 About Operating System Requirements

Depending on the products that you intend to install, verify that you have the required operating system kernel and packages installed.

Requirements listed in this document are current as of the date listed on the title page. To obtain the most current information about kernel requirements, see the online version on the Oracle Technology Network at the following URL:

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/indexes/documentation/index.html

Oracle Universal Installer performs checks your system to verify that it meets the listed operating system package requirements. To ensure that these checks complete successfully, verify the requirements before you start Oracle Universal Installer.

8 Checking the Software Requirements

To check the software requirements, perform the following steps:

  1. To determine the distribution and version of HP-UX installed, enter the following command:

    # uname -a
    

    The output of this command is similar to the following:

    HP-UX hostname B.11.31 U ia64 4156074294 unlimited-user license
    

    In this example, the version of HP-UX is 11.31 and the processor is Itanium.

  2. To determine the compiler installed, enter the following command:

    # /usr/sbin/swlist -l product | grep -i compiler
    
  3. To determine if a patch is installed, enter a command similar to the following:

    # /usr/sbin/swlist -l patch | grep PHSS_37959
    

    Alternatively, to list all installed patches, enter the following command:

    # /usr/sbin/swlist -l patch | more
    

    If a required patch is not installed, then download it from the HP Support Center website and install it:

    http://www.hp.com/go/hpsc

    If the website has a recent version of the patch, then download and install that version.

  4. To verify if the system meets the minimum patch bundle requirements, use the following command:

    # /usr/sbin/swlist -l bundle |grep QPK
    

    The QPK (Quality Pack) bundles have version numbers of the form B.11.31.0809.326a (for the September 2008 release), B.11.31.0903.334a (for the March 2009 release), and so on.

    If a required bundle, product, or fileset is not installed, then you must install it. See your operating system or software documentation for information about installing products.

    Note:

    There may be more recent versions of the patches listed in the preceding paragraph that are installed on the system. If a listed patch is not installed, then determine if a more recent version is installed before installing the version listed.
  5. If you require a CSD for WebSphere MQ, then refer to the following website for download and installation information:

    http://www-01.ibm.com/software/

9 Creating Required Operating System Groups and Users

The following local operating system groups and users are required if you are installing Oracle Database:

  • The Oracle Inventory group (oinstall)

  • The OSDBA group (dba)

  • The Oracle software owner (oracle)

To determine whether these groups and users already exist, and if necessary, to create them, follow these steps:

  1. To determine whether the oinstall group exists, enter the following command:

    # more /var/opt/oracle/oraInst.loc
    

    If the output of this command shows the oinstall group name, then the group already exists.

    Note:

    In Oracle documentation, Oracle Inventory group is called oinstall. However, it is not mandatory to use the same name, you can enter a different name for the group.

    If the oraInst.loc file exists, then the output from this command is similar to the following:

    inventory_loc=/u01/app/oraInventory
    inst_group=oinstall
    

    The inst_group parameter shows the name of the Oracle Inventory group, oinstall.

  2. To determine whether the dba group exists, enter the following command:

    # grep dba /etc/group
    

    If the output from this commands shows the dba group name, then the group already exists.

  3. If necessary, enter the following commands to create the oinstall and dba groups:

    # /usr/sbin/groupadd oinstall
    # /usr/sbin/groupadd dba
    
  4. To determine whether the oracle user exists and belongs to the correct groups, enter the following command:

    # id oracle
    

    If the oracle user exists, then this command displays information about the groups to which the user belongs. The output should be similar to the following, indicating that oinstall is the primary group and dba is a secondary group:

    uid=440(oracle) gid=200(oinstall) groups=201(dba),202(oper)
    
  5. If necessary, complete one of the following actions:

    • If the oracle user exists, but its primary group is not oinstall or it is not a member of the dba group, then enter the following command:

      # /usr/sbin/usermod -g oinstall -G dba oracle
      
    • If the oracle user does not exist, enter the following command to create it:

      # /usr/sbin/useradd -g oinstall -G dba oracle
      

      This command creates the oracle user and specifies oinstall (for example) as the primary group and dba as the secondary group.

  6. Enter the following command to set the password of the oracle user:

    # passwd oracle
    

10 Configuring Kernel Parameters

During installation, you can generate and run the Fixup script to check and set the kernel parameter values required for successful installation of the database. This script updates required kernel packages if necessary to minimum values.

If you cannot use the Fixup scripts, then verify that the kernel parameters shown in the following table are set to values greater than or equal to the minimum value shown. The procedure following the table describes how to verify and set the values manually.

Note:

The kernel parameter values shown in this section are recommended values only. For production database systems, Oracle recommends that you tune these values to optimize the performance of the system. See your operating system documentation for more information about tuning kernel parameters.

shmmax 1073741824
shmmni 4096
shmseg 512
tcp_largest_anon_port 65500
udp_largest_anon_port 65500

See Also:

"Verifying UDP and TCP Kernel Parameters" in the Oracle Database Installation Guide for HP-UX Itanium

Note:

If the current value for any parameter is higher than the value listed in this table, then do not change the value of that parameter.

The following kernel parameters are obsolete. You need not specify values for these parameters:

  • tcp_smallest_anon_port

  • udp_smallest_anon_port

  • msgmap

  • msgseg

To view the current value or formula specified for these kernel parameters, and to change them if necessary:

  1. Enter the following command to start the kcweb application:

    # /usr/sbin/kcweb -F
    
  2. Check the value or formula specified for each of these parameters and, if necessary, modify that value or formula.

    If necessary, refer to the kcweb online Help for more information about completing this step.

    Note:

    If you modify the value of a parameter that is not dynamic, then you must restart the system.

11 Creating Required Directories

Create directories with names similar to the following, and specify the correct owner, group, and permissions for them:

  • The Oracle base directory

  • An optional Oracle data file directory

The Oracle base directory must have appropriate free disk space if you choose not to create a separate Oracle data file directory.

Note:

If you do not want to create a separate Oracle data file directory, then you can install the data files in a subdirectory of the Oracle base directory. However, this is not recommended for production databases.

To create the Oracle base directory:

  1. Enter the following command to display information about all mounted file systems:

    # bdf
    

    This command displays information about all the file systems mounted on the system, including:

    • The physical device name

    • The total amount, used amount, and available amount of disk space

    • The mount point directory for that file system

  2. From the display, identify either one or two file systems that meet the disk space requirements mentioned earlier in this section.

  3. Note the name of the mount point directory for each file system that you identified.

  4. Enter commands similar to the following to create the recommended subdirectories in the mount point directory that you identified and set the appropriate owner, group, and permissions on them:

    # mkdir /mount_point/oradata
    # chown oracle:oinstall /mount_point/oradata
    # chmod 775 /mount_point/oradata
    

12 Configuring Oracle Software Owner Environment

You run Oracle Universal Installer from the oracle account. However, before you start Oracle Universal Installer you must configure the environment of the oracle user. To configure the environment, you must:

  • Set the default file mode creation mask (umask) to 022 in the shell startup file.

  • Set the DISPLAY environment variable.

Caution:

Use shell programs supported by your operating system vendor. If you use a shell program that is not supported by your operating system, then you can encounter errors during installation.

To set the oracle user's environment:

  1. Start a new X terminal session (xterm).

  2. Enter the following command to ensure that X Window applications can display on this system:

    $ xhost + RemoteHost
    

    where RemoteHost is the fully qualified remote host name. For example:

    $ xhost + somehost.example.com
    
  3. If you are not logged in to the system where you want to install the software, then log in to that system as the oracle user.

  4. If you are not logged in as the oracle user, then switch user to oracle:

    $ su - oracle
    
  5. To determine the default shell for the oracle user, enter the following command:

    $ echo $SHELL
    
  6. To run the shell startup script, enter one of the following commands:

    • Bash shell:

      $ . ./.bash_profile
      
    • Bourne or Korn shell:

      $ . ./.profile
      
    • C shell:

      % source ./.login
      
  7. If you are not installing the software on the local system, then enter a command similar to the following to direct X applications to display on the local system:

    • Bourne, Bash, or Korn shell:

      $ DISPLAY=local_host:0.0
      
    • C shell:

      % setenv DISPLAY local_host:0.0
      

    In this example, local_host is the host name or IP address of the system to use to display Oracle Universal Installer (your workstation or PC).

  8. If you determined that the /tmp directory has less than 400 MB of free disk space, then identify a file system with at least 400 MB of free space and set the TMP and TMPDIR environment variables to specify a temporary directory on this file system:

    1. To determine the free disk space on each mounted file system, use the following command:

      # df -k 
      
    2. If necessary, enter commands similar to the following to create a temporary directory on the file system that you identified, and set the appropriate permissions on the directory:

      $ sudo mkdir /mount_point/tmp
      $ sudo chmod a+wr /mount_point/tmp
      # exit
      
    3. Enter commands similar to the following to set the TMP and TMPDIR environment variables:

      • Bourne, Bash, or Korn shell:

        $ TMP=/mount_point/tmp
        $ TMPDIR=/mount_point/tmp
        $ export TMP TMPDIR
        
      • C shell:

        % setenv TMP /mount_point/tmp
        % setenv TMPDIR /mount_point/tmp
        
  9. If you have had an existing installation on your system, and you are using the same user account to install this installation, then unset the ORACLE_HOME, ORACLE_BASE, ORACLE_SID, TNS_ADMIN environment variables and any other environment variable set for the Oracle installation user that is connected with Oracle software homes.

    Enter the following commands to ensure that the ORACLE_HOME, ORACLE_BASE, ORACLE_SID and TNS_ADMIN environment variables are not set:

    • Bourne, Bash, or Korn shell:

      $ unset ORACLE_HOME
      $ unset ORACLE_BASE
      $ unset ORACLE_SID
      $ unset TNS_ADMIN
      
    • C shell:

      % unsetenv ORACLE_HOME
      % unsetenv ORACLE_BASE % unsetenv ORACLE_SID
      % unsetenv TNS_ADMIN
      

    Use the following command to check the PATH environment variable:

    $ echo $PATH
    

    Ensure that the $ORACLE_HOME/bin path is removed from your PATH environment variable.

    Note:

    If the ORACLE_HOME environment variable is set, then Oracle Universal Installer uses the value that it specifies as the default path for the Oracle home directory. If you set the ORACLE_BASE environment variable, then Oracle recommends that you unset the ORACLE_HOME environment variable and choose the default path suggested by Oracle Universal Installer.
  10. To verify that the environment has been set correctly, enter the following commands:

    $ umask
    $ env | more
    

    Verify that the umask command displays a value of 22, 022, or 0022 and the environment variables that you set in this section have the correct values.

13 Mounting the Product Disc

On most HP-UX Itanium systems, the product disc mounts automatically when you insert it into the drive. If the disc does not mount automatically, then follow these steps to mount it:

  1. Switch user to root:

    $ su -
    password
    #
    
  2. If necessary, enter the following command to unmount the currently mounted disc, then remove it from the drive:

    # /usr/sbin/umount /SD_DVD
    

    In this example, /SD_DVD is the mount point directory for the disc drive.

  3. Insert the appropriate disc into the disc drive, then enter a command similar to the following to mount it:

    # /usr/sbin/mount -F cdfs -o rr /dev/dsk/cxtydz /SD_DVD
    

    In this example, /SD_DVD is the disc mount point directory and /dev/dsk/cxtydz is the device name for the disc device, for example /dev/dsk/c0t2d0.

  4. If Oracle Universal Installer is displaying the Disk Location dialog box, enter the disc mount point directory path, for example:
