Setting the ORACLE_HOME Variable for Solaris

If you are using some Oracle clients on Solaris, make sure that the ORACLE_HOME variable is set to specify 32-bit Oracle OCI libraries. The Oracle 9i client installation lib directory contains the 64-bit libraries, but Siebel Analytics only supports 32-bit operations.

To set the ORACLE_HOME variable for Oracle 9i clients

  1. Specify the path to the lib32 directory in LD_LIBRARY_PATH, not the path to the lib directory.

    setenv ORACLE_HOME /export/home/oracle/9202

    setenv TNS_ADMIN /export/home

    setenv PATH ${ORACLE_HOME}/bin:/opt/bin:${PATH}

    setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH ${ORACLE_HOME}/lib:${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}:/opt/j2se/jre/lib/sparc

  2. Run the following command:

    setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH export/home/oracle/9202/lib32:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

  3. From $INSTALLDIR/Bin, run the following command:

    ln -s /export/home/oracle/9202/lib32/

NOTE:  Only certain specific versions of Oracle clients are supported. For more information, see Siebel System Requirements and Supported Platforms.
