This chapter describes how to set up a new Oracle Database Server on a UNIX computer.
Installing an Oracle Database Server on a UNIX computer requires you to complete the following tasks:
If you are installing the Database Server on a Windows computer, see Chapter 3 for installation instructions.
If you are upgrading to TMS, see Chapter 6.
You install the TMS database server code as part of your application tier (middle tier) installation. For installation instructions, see Chapter 4.
To support TMS Database Server, a UNIX computer requires the following version of Oracle Database software:
Oracle Database 11gRelease 184.108.40.206.0 plus Patch Set 1 (220.127.116.11.0), plus individual patchesEnterprise Edition
However, this requirement might change during the life of this document. Before you begin, check My Oracle Support for the latest requirement.
This section describes the following tasks:
To install Oracle Database 11g Release 18.104.22.168.0:
Locate the Oracle Database 11g software for your operating system on the media pack:
|Oracle Enterprise Linux||V14216-01||Oracle Database 11g Release 1 (22.214.171.124.0)|
|Oracle Solaris||V14414-01||Oracle Database 11g Release 1 (126.96.36.199.0)|
|HP-UX Itanium||V14232-01||Oracle Database 11g Release 1 (188.8.131.52.0)|
Follow the included instructions for installing Oracle Database 11g.
Choose to install the Enterprise Edition option.
Oracle Database Examples, which is required for TMS, includes the following items:
Oracle JDBC Development Drivers
Oracle Database Examples
Oracle Product Demonstrations (optional)
Note:You do not need to install any of the sample schemas. They are not required for either Oracle TMS or Oracle Clinical. You can add them later if you change your mind.
To install Oracle Database 11g Examples:
Locate the appropriate Database Examples zip file for your operating system on the media pack:
|Operating System||Disk||Path||Zip File|
|Oracle Enterprise Linux||V22167-01||/patches||linux.x64_11gR1_examples.zip|
Install the software according to the Oracle Database Examples Installation Guide, which is included on the media pack.
Accept all the default values during the installation.
Locate the appropriate Oracle Database 11g Patch Set 1 software for your operating system on the media pack:
|Operating System||Disk||Path||Zip Files|
|Oracle Enterprise Linux||V22167-01||/patches||p6890831_111070_Linux-x86-64.zip|
Extract the patch zip file(s) to a location that is accessible to the Database Server.
Follow the operating system-specific instructions in the ReadMe file to apply Patch Set 1 to the Oracle Database 11g installation. The ReadMe file is located at the top level of the patch set extraction location.
After you apply Patch Set 1 to upgrade your Oracle Database 11g installation to Release 184.108.40.206.0, you must apply several Oracle Database 11g standalone patches.
To apply the standalone patches:
Locate the appropriate Oracle Database 11g standalone patches for your operating system on the media pack:
|Operating System||Disk||Path||Zip Files|
|Oracle Enterprise Linux||V22167-01||/patches||p7327166_111070_Linux-x86-64.zip
Extract the appropriate patch zip files to a location that is accessible to the Database Server.
Follow the operating system-specific instructions in the ReadMe file to apply the standalone patches to the Oracle Database 11g installation. The ReadMe file is located at the top level of the patch set extraction location.

In an Oracle Solaris environment, when you use the Bourne shell (sh) to run the oraenv script, the script may fail with the following error:
Test: Argument Expected
To work around this known issue:
Navigate to the following directory:
Open the oraenv script file and locate the following text string:
The performance of Oracle Database 11g relies on proper tuning of operating system parameters. In addition, if you are creating several Oracle instances, you might have to increase the amount of shared memory and semaphores on the system by setting kernel parameters.
