2.6 Coexistence

This section provides information about the coexistence of Oracle products in one ORACLE_HOME, and guidelines for installing multiple Oracle products on one machine.

2.6.1 ORACLE_HOME Considerations

ORACLE_HOME is the root directory in which Oracle software is installed.

2.6.2 Performing Multiple Installation Instances of Oracle9i Developer Suite

Multiple installation instances of Oracle9iDS Release 2 (9.0.2) can only exist in different ORACLE_HOMEs. The following guidelines are also applicable when installing Oracle9iDS Release 2 (9.0.2) over Oracle Internet Developer Suite (former version of Oracle9iDS).

  1. Make sure you reboot the machine at least once, after the first (existing) installation is completed (Windows only).

  2. Make sure you have sufficient disk space to handle both installations. See Table 2-1 to determine the disk space requirements.

  3. Perform the second installation into a different ORACLE_HOME from the first one.

  4. Reboot the machine after the last installation is completed (Windows only).

2.6.3 Installing Oracle9i Developer Suite and Any Oracle Database

Oracle9iDS cannot share the same ORACLE_HOME with Oracle databases.

  1. Make sure you reboot the machine at least once, after the Oracle Database installation is completed (Windows only).

  2. Make sure you have sufficient disk space to handle both installations. See the specific Oracle Database installation guide and Table 2-1 in this guide to determine the total disk space requirements.

  3. Perform the Oracle9iDS installation into a different ORACLE_HOME from the Oracle Database.

  4. Reboot the machine after the last installation is completed (Windows only).

2.7 Preinstallation Tasks

Before installing Oracle9iDS, review the Oracle9i Developer Suite Release Notes. The Release Notes are available on the Oracle9i Developer Suite documentation library CD-ROM. To display the Release Notes, see Section C.3.1, "Viewing the Release Notes from the CD-ROM". The latest Release Notes and Release Notes Addendum are also available on Oracle Technology Network at

http://otn.oracle.com

The preinstallation tasks for Oracle9iDS are divided into the following parts:

2.7.1 General Checklist

2.7.2 Setting the Locale

Oracle Universal Installer is sensitive to the locale where the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) is running.

For Windows platforms, the default locale is inherited from the operating environment.

For UNIX platforms, the default locale is initialized by the value of LANG.

Oracle Universal Installer will display the installer user interface in the appropriate language as specified in the current locale. Be sure to set the locale before starting the installer.

2.7.3 Using Assistive Technologies (Windows only)

If you use assistive technologies such as screen readers to work with Java-based applications and applets, run access_setup.bat before starting your screen reader.

The file access_setup.bat is located in the directory \install\win32 of the Oracle9i Developer Suite CD-ROM labelled Disk 1.

2.7.4 Installing Java Access Bridge (Windows only)

If you use assistive technologies such as screen readers, to work with Java-based applications and applets, the Windows-based computer where you are installing Oracle9iDS must have Sun's Java Access Bridge installed in all the Java virtual machine locations on the computer.

The Oracle Universal Installer for Oracle9iDS installs files for JDK/JRE 1.1.8 and JDK/JRE 1.3 on your computer, but it will install Java Access Bridge 1.0.2 files in the JDK/JRE 1.3 location only.

Do one of the following:

To download and install Java Access Bridge 1.0.2:

  1. Download the zip file for Java Access Bridge 1.0.2 from

    http://java.sun.com/products/accessbridge/

    Refer to the Java Access Bridge documentation available from this web site for more information about installation and Java Access Bridge.

  2. After downloading the file, extract the contents to a folder; for example, accessbridge_home.

  3. Install Java Access Bridge by running install.exe from the <accessbridge_home>\installer folder.

  4. Confirm that you want to install the Java Access Bridge into each of the Java virtual machines displayed in the dialog.

  5. Click OK when you see the Installation Completed message.

2.7.5 Setting Environment Variables (UNIX only)

The tasks in this section are required on UNIX platforms only.

2.7.5.1 ORACLE_HOME

2.7.5.1.1 Preventing Conflicts With Other Oracle Homes

To prevent a conflict between the software in an existing Oracle Home and the Oracle9iDS installation, you must remove all references to the existing Oracle Home in your environment. Follow these steps to remove these references.

  1. Unset your existing Oracle Home variable by using the following command.

    C shell Bourne/Korn shell

    prompt> unsetenv ORACLE_HOME

    prompt> export ORACLE_HOME=

  1. Edit your PATH, LD_LIBRARY_PATH, SHLIB_PATH (HP-UX only), and CLASSPATH environment variables so they do not use the existing Oracle Home value.

2.7.5.1.2 Setting ORACLE_HOME

Set the ORACLE_HOME environment variable using the following command.

C shell Bourne/Korn shell

prompt> setenv ORACLE_HOME full_path

prompt> export ORACLE_HOME= full path

2.7.5.2 DISPLAY

Setting the DISPLAY environment variable enables you to run the Oracle Universal Installer remotely from a local work station.

On the system where you run the Oracle Universal Installer, set DISPLAY to the system name or IP address of your local workstation.


Note:

A PC X emulator can be used to run the install if it supports a PseudoColor color model or PseudoColor visual. Set the PC X emulator to use a PseudoColor visual, and then start the installer. Refer to the X emulator documentation for instructions on how to change the color model or visual settings.


If you get an Xlib error similar to "Failed to connect to server", "Connection refused by server", or "Can't open display" when starting the installer, then run the commands on your local workstations as listed in the table below.

Shell Types On server where the installer is running In session on your workstation

C shell

prompt> setenv DISPLAY hostname:0.0

prompt> xhost +server_name

Bourne or Korn shell

prompt> export DISPLAY= hostname:0.0

prompt> xhost +server_name

2.7.5.3 TMP

During installation, Oracle Universal Installer uses a temporary directory for swap space. This directory must meet the hardware requirements listed in Table 2-1 before installing Oracle9iDS. The installation may fail if you do not have sufficient space. The installer checks for the TMP environment variable to locate the temporary directory. If this environment variable does not exist, then the installer uses the /tmp directory.

The following are instructions for setting the TMP environment variable.

C shell Bourne/Korn shell

prompt> setenv TMP full_path

prompt> export TMP= full_path

2.7.5.4 TNS_ADMIN

TNS_ADMIN points to the directory where Net configuration files are stored.

If TNS_ADMIN is set on your system, you will have conflicts between that directory and the directory where the Oracle9iDS Net configuration files are created. You will also have conflicts if the configuration files are in a common directory outside of the Oracle Home for your other Oracle product. For example, your system may use /var/opt/oracle/tnsnames.ora for database aliases.

To prevent conflicts between the Net configuration files for different Oracle products, copy the configuration files from either TNS_ADMIN or the common directory to $ORACLE_HOME/network/admin for the other product and unset TNS_ADMIN using the following command.

C shell Bourne/Korn shell

prompt> unsetenv TNS_ADMIN

prompt> export TNS_ADMIN=

2.7.6 Creating UNIX Accounts and Groups

The tasks in this section are required on UNIX platforms only.

2.7.6.1 UNIX Group Name for the Oracle Universal Installer Inventory

Use the utility provided on your operating system to create a group named oinstall. For example:

For more information on these utilities, refer to your operating environment documentation.

The oinstall group will own Oracle Universal Installer's oraInventory directory. The oracle user account that runs the installation must have the oinstall group as its primary group.

2.7.6.2 UNIX Account to Own Oracle Software

The oracle account is the UNIX account that owns Oracle software for your system. You must run Oracle Universal Installer from this account.

Create an oracle account with the properties listed in Table 2-9.

Table 2-9 Oracle Account Properties
Variable Property

Login Name

Choose any name to access the account. This document refers to the name as the oracle account.

Group Identifier

The oinstall group.

Home Directory

Choose a home directory consistent with other user home directories. The home directory of the oracle account does not have to be the same as the ORACLE_HOME directory.

Login Shell

The default shell can be either the C, Bourne, or Korn shell.


Note:

Use the oracle account only for installing and maintaining Oracle software. Never use it for purposes unrelated to the Oracle Universal Installer. Do not use root as the oracle account.

Review Chapter A, "Migration Notes" if you are migrating or upgrading from:

2.8 About Oracle Universal Installer

Oracle9iDS uses Oracle Universal Installer to install components and to configure environment variables. The installer guides you through each step of the installation process.

The installer includes features that perform the following tasks:

2.8.1 Inventory Directory

The installer creates the Inventory or oraInventory directory the first time it is run on your machine. The inventory directory keeps a record of the products that the installer installs on your machine as well as other installation information. If you have previously installed Oracle products, then you may already have an inventory directory.

2.8.2 Starting Oracle Universal Installer

Follow these instructions to launch Oracle Universal Installer, which installs Oracle9iDS.

2.8.2.1 For Windows users


Note:

If you encounter a Windows System Files error during installation, click OK to close the error dialog. Then follow the instructions for running the Windows System Files installation later in this section.


  1. Stop all Oracle services (e.g., the Oracle database).

  2. Insert the Oracle9i Developer Suite CD-ROM labelled Disk 1.

  3. If your machine does not support the autorun feature, locate the executable setup.exe in the root directory of the CD-ROM. Start the installer by launching the setup.exe program.

  4. If your machine supports the autorun feature, the autorun window will automatically launch on your machine. Click Install Oracle9iDS to start the installer.

  5. For users of Windows assistive technologies: To disable the autorun feature, hold down the Shift key after inserting the CD-ROM. Alternatively, if the autorun window appears, press ALT-F4 to close the window. Then do one of the following:

    1. To install Oracle9iDS, locate the executable setup.exe in the root directory of the CD-ROM. Start the installer by launching the setup.exe program.

    2. To browse the CD-ROM contents, use your Windows Explorer.

    3. To learn about Oracle9iDS, point your browser to the file \doc\ids902welcome\index.htm on the CD-ROM.

Proceed to Section 3.1, "Installing Oracle9i Developer Suite" for further instructions.

2.8.2.1.1 Windows System Files Installation

Oracle9iDS requires several files to be present in the Windows System folder. During the Oracle9iDS installation, these required files already present on the target system are examined to ensure that they meet the requirements for Oracle9iDS. If any file has an outdated version, it will be replaced with a compatible version.

Normally, replacement can be done during the Oracle9iDS installation, but if the file to be replaced is in use by another process at the time of installation, then the installation will halt and an error dialog will appear. This is because Windows needs to restart for the updated file to take effect and the Oracle9iDS installation routine cannot be interrupted by a system reboot during installation.

Oracle9iDS includes a supplementary installation for the required Windows System Files. This Windows System Files installation will automatically reboot the system if necessary at the conclusion of the system files installation.

If you encounter a Windows System Files error during the Oracle9iDS installation, click OK to close the error dialog, then use the following instructions to run the Windows System Files installation. You cannot proceed with the Oracle9iDS installation if you do not run the Windows System Files installation.

To run the Windows System Files installation:

  1. Click Exit to quit the Oracle9iDS installation.

  2. Change to the root directory on the Oracle9i Developer Suite CD-ROM.

  3. Run wsf.exe.

    The Windows System Files installation runs with a response file that utilizes an existing Oracle home or creates the home OUIHome if none is available.

    Windows restarts automatically, if it is required; otherwise the Windows System Files installation will end without displaying any Installation Finished dialog.

  4. After Windows restarts or at the end of the Windows System Files installation, restart the Oracle9iDS installation.

2.8.2.2 For UNIX users


Note:

You need access to the root account.


For operating environments that do not support automatic mounting of CD-ROMs, the Oracle9i Developer Suite installation CD-ROMs must be mounted manually. You must have root privileges to mount or unmount a CD-ROM. Be sure to unmount a CD-ROM before removing it from the drive.

  1. Stop all Oracle processes (e.g., the Oracle database).

  2. Mount the installation CD-ROM.

    The Oracle9i Developer Suite installation CD-ROM is in RockRidge format.

    Please read the appropriate section for your platform:

2.8.2.2.1 Mounting CD-ROMs for Solaris

If you are using the Solaris Volume Management software (installed by default with the Solaris operating environment), then the CD-ROM is mounted automatically to cdrom/Disk1 when you insert it in the disk drive.

If you are not using the Solaris Volume Management software, then you must mount the CD-ROM manually.

Follow these steps to mount the Disk 1 CD-ROM manually:

  1. Insert the Oracle9i Developer Suite Disk 1 CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive.

  2. Log in as the root user.

  3. Create the CD-ROM mount point directory.

    prompt> mkdir mount_point

  4. Mount the CD-ROM drive on the mount point directory.

    prompt> mount options device_name mount_point

    The following example mounts the CD-ROM manually on /cdrom, without using the Solaris Volume Management software. Execute the following commands as the root user.

    prompt> mkdir /cdrom
    prompt> mount -r -F hsfs device_name /cdrom

  5. Log out as the root user.

  6. Proceed to Section 2.8.2.2.4, "Running Oracle Universal Installer".

2.8.2.2.2 Mounting CD-ROMs for HP-UX

  1. Use the following command to determine the device_file:

    prompt> ioscan -fun -C disk

  2. If there is not already an entry in the /etc/pfs_fstab file for your CD-ROM device, you must add one. As the root user, use a system editor to add a line to the /etc/pfs_fstab file following this format:

    device_file mount_point filesystem_type translation_method

    In the preceding format, the first entry is the CD-ROM device, the second entry is the mount point, and the third entry indicates that the CD-ROM to be mounted is in ISO9660 format with Rockridge extensions. For example, if a CD-ROM device has the path /dev/dsk/c4t2d0, you would enter the following:

    /dev/dsk/c4t2d0 /SD_CDROM pfs-rrip xlat=unix 1 0

  3. Log in as the root user.

  4. Enter the following commands:

    prompt> nohup /usr/sbin/pfs_mountd &
    prompt> nohup /usr/sbin/pfsd &

  5. Insert the Oracle9i Developer Suite Disk 1 CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive and mount the CD-ROM by entering the following command:

    prompt> /usr/sbin/pfs_mount /SD_CDROM

  6. Log out as the root user.

  7. Proceed to Section 2.8.2.2.4, "Running Oracle Universal Installer".

2.8.2.2.3 Mounting CD-ROMs for Linux

If you are using auto mounting software, the CD-ROM is mounted automatically to the directory specified in your auto mount configuration when you insert Disk 1 into the CD-ROM drive.

If you are not using auto mounting software, then you must mount the CD-ROM manually.

Follow these steps to mount the Disk 1 CD-ROM manually:

  1. Insert the Oracle9i Developer Suite Disk 1 CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive.

  2. Log in as the root user.

  3. If necessary, create a CD-ROM mount point directory by using the following command:

    prompt> mkdir mount_point

  4. Mount the CD-ROM drive on the mount point directory.

    prompt> mount options device_name mount_point

    The following example mounts the CD-ROM manually on /cdrom, without using the Linux auto mounting software. Execute the following commands as the root user.

    prompt> mkdir /cdrom
