Oracle Server Software

This chapter explains how you install the Oracle8i Server release 8.1.7 and related products under BS2000/OSD. It provides information on the following topics:

Overview of Oracle Server Installation

The files on the distribution tape (the distribution files) contain the Oracle object code, and the procedures for installing and running Oracle, its utilities and tools. An Oracle installation is the process of loading these files to disk, and making them available to those who need to use them.

The following is a summary of the contents of the distribution tape:

Installing the Oracle Server Software Under a New Userid

We strongly recommend to install V8i under a new userid especially when upgrading from V7 because Migration utility needs V7 environment.

  1. The BS2000 System Administrator needs to create the Oracle installation userid, the userid under which you want the Oracle Server 8.1.7 software to reside. Throughout this guide we refer to this userid as $ORACL817. This userid does not require any special BS2000 privileges and should have at least 220 000 PAM blocks free.

  2. LOGON under your installation userid ($ORACL817).

  3. Use the BS2000 ARCHIVE utility to load the contents of the tapes. Enter the following:


ORACL1 is the volume serial number on the tape.


For this release of Oracle8i, the tape format has changed from TAPE-C1 to TAPE-C4.

The RENAME=$userid parameter is used to specify the installation userid if the installation userid is not the default, $ORACL817.

Use the CONVERSION=STD parameter if you are loading the files into a non-key pubset.

  • Review the .DOC files read from the installation tape, especially the README.DOC file, if it exists. These text files serve as an online supplement to the printed documentation and provide up-to-date information on this release.

  • Execute the install procedure as follows:


    where userid is your current installation userid

    This procedure applies the necessary changes to a number of command files.

    Installing Multiple Oracle Systems

    You can also install multiple Oracle systems, based on the same or different versions of Oracle software. In this case, different versions of the software must be installed under different installation userids. If you are creating a database manually (not using INSTALL.P.SUPER) keep the database filenames unique by ensuring they are prefixed by the sid for that database.
