Step by Step installing Oracle 11g R2 on Oracle Solaris 10

Posted by Kamran Agayev A. on March 27th, 2011

In this step by step tutorial I’m going to show you the steps of installing Oracle 11gR2 on Oracle Solaris 10. For this, download Oracle 11gR2 and Oracle Solaris 10, create virtual machine and install Oracle Solaris 10 using my following step by step tutorial:

http://kamranagayev.wordpress.com/2010/11/03/step-by-step-installing-oracle10gr2-on-oracle-solaris/

After installing the Solaris, login with root user. As a first step let’s install VMware tools. For this, disconnect the installation dvd and select “Install VMware tools” from the VM menu

After some seconds a new window will appear.

Get its address, copy the file from to the /tmp directory using a terminal window, unzip and install it

Get into the unzipped folder and run the installation file.

[code]

cd vmware-tools-distrib
./vmware-install.pl
[/code]

After the installation completes, logout from the root user and login again

Now, let’s check the installed OS packages that are required for the Oracle installation. For this, run the following command:

[code]pkginfo -i SUNWarc SUNWbtool SUNWhea SUNWlibC SUNWlibms SUNWsprot SUNWtoo SUNWi1of SUNWi1cs SUNWi15cs SUNWxwfnt
[/code]

You should miss two packages – 1) SUNWi1cs 2) SUNWi15cs

To install them, mount the Solaris installation dvd and run the following command:

[code]pkgadd -d /cdrom/sol_10_910_x86/Solaris_10/Product SUNWi1cs SUNWi15cs[/code]

If the mount point of the cdrom is different in your environment, specify the correct path to the dvd

After installation completed perform the following steps:

1) Create necessary groups and a user

[code]

groupadd oinstall
groupadd dba
useradd -g oinstall -G dba -d /export/home/oracle -s /usr/bin/bash oracle
passwd oracle

[/code]

2) Create necessary folder for the installation

[code]mkdir -p /export/home/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1
mkdir /export/home/oracle/tmp[/code]

[code]chown -R oracle:oinstall /export/home/oracle[/code]

3) Change kernel parameters

[code]

projadd -U oracle -K "project.max-shm-memory=(priv,4g,deny)" oracle
projmod -sK "project.max-sem-nsems=(priv,256,deny)" oracle
projmod -sK "project.max-sem-ids=(priv,100,deny)" oracle
projmod -sK "project.max-shm-ids=(priv,100,deny)" oracle
echo "set maxuprc=16384" >> /etc/system
echo "set max_nprocs=30000" >> /etc/system
echo "set shmsys:shminfo_shmmax=4294967295" >> /etc/system

[/code]

Now reboot the machine and login with an oracle user. Let’s create a new swap file with 1Gb size, as it’s required for the Oracle installation

[code]

mkfile 1024m /export/home/oracle/orcl_swap
swap -a /export/home/oracle/orcl_swap
[/code]

Now change the .profile file of the oracle user and set necessary environment variables:

gedit /export/home/oracle/.profile

[code]

export ORACLE_BASE=/export/home/oracle
export ORACLE_HOME=$ORACLE_BASE/product/11.2.0/db_1
export PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/bin:$PATH
export TMP=/export/home/oracle/tmp
export TMPDIR=/export/home/oracle/tmp
export DISPLAY=:0.0

[/code]

Now create an “installation” direcotry under /export/home/oracle

Then mout the cdrom device and copy the installation files to that directory

Extract both files uzing unzip utility, and start the installation

[code]

unzip your_file1.zip

unzip your_file2.zip

cd database

./runInstaller

[/code]

Uncheck the checkbox and click next. If you can’t see the Next button, use Alt+N combination :)

Select the first option and click next

Click Next

Defint the folder for Oracle installation, database name and passwords and click next

Click Next

Click Finish to start the installation.

After the installation of the software finishes, installer automatically runs the DBCA to create the database

After a while, installation finishes.

Click OK and you’ll be prompted to run orainstRoot.sh and root.sh

Switch to the previous Terminal, create new window, login with a root user and run both shell scripts

At last, you’ll get success message

Now let’s connect to the database from Sql*Plus

  2. Kamran Agayev A. Says:

    Dear Bakhtiyar

    It seems your zip file is corrupted. Please download it again, check the checksum and try it

    Good Luck!

  3. Aydin Says:

    Hi! Kamran, what installation files I must copy into the /export/home/oracle/installation folder? where to get them? Please, explain from that moment and next step.

    Thank in advance

    HI Kamran,

    Your Blog is very helpful to all buddies in oracle like me.

    In Step by Step installing Oracle 10g RAC on VMware. Screenshot No.59, i get stucked. I cannot create the ORACLE_BASE,ORACLE_HOME and other directories as oracle user. and why we add all env variables in root’s .bash_profile file.

    please clarify my boubt.

    Thanks and Regards,
    Nagarjuna Reddy

  5. Kamran Agayev A. Says:

    Add those environment variables to the .bash file of the oracle user, switch to the oracle user, make sure all those variables are set (using echo command) and create the folders

    Solution:

    unzip the win64_11gR2_database_2of2
    cd database–>stage–>Components and copy all folders
    go to win64_11gR2_database_1of2 –>database–>stage–>componenets
    and paste them all and rerun setup.exe from first unzip fil

  9. Kamran Agayev A. Says:

    Dear Stan, you got the error because you’ve unzipped both files to seperate directory. Unzip them to the same directory and try the installation

  10. Olu Says:

    Hi Kamran,

    I have installed Solaris 10 x86, and have done all the configurations in preparation for Oracle 11g installation..

    Just to be sure..Where should the Oracle installation files be downloaded to, and unzipped to?

  11. Kamran Agayev A. Says:

    Dear Olu

    You can download and unzip the oracle installation to any directory in your system.

  12. olu Says:

    During the installation of Solaris 10, what should be the proper disk layout requirements for a successful Oracle 11g installation. I have always selected auto-layout, but I get the following error message – INS-32021: Insufficient disk space on this volume for the selected Oracle home.

    For a lab environment, assuming I am allocating 20g for the Disk space of my Solaris machine, you give me pointers on how I should layout my disk space.

    Dear Kamran,

    i have installed oracle 11G express. Is it same method of installations? This because this solaris machine was on text mode. No GUI.

    Please advise

  21. Nikhil Says:

    Hi Kamran,
    I am getting an error while running the Installer. Pl check this

    bash-3.00$ ./runInstaller
    /export/home/oracle/Installation/database/install/.oui: syntax error at line 1: `|’ unexpected

    I have been looking at the Solaris OS and DB 11gr2 compatibility. The solaris OS that I have used (and being used in this post) is sol-10-u9-ga-x86-dvd – a 32 bit OS.
    However, the 11gr2 DB packages i.e. “solaris.x64_11gR2_database_1of2 and solaris.x64_11gR2_database_2of2″ are compatible with x86-64.

    Is this what is creating a problem? Pl advice.
    Also, pl let me know your system configuration because I have using Intel i5 core vpro 150M which I believe is not a x86-64 processor.

    Awaiting your response.

    Regards,
    Nikhil.

  22. Kamran Agayev A. Says:

    Hi Nikhil

    You try to install 64 bit Oracle on 32 bit OS, which is not supported. Please download correct soft and install it. You should succeed

  23. Kamran Agayev A. Says:

    Hi Vivek

    Have you tried to set it as it described in this post?

  24. Kamran Agayev A. Says:

    Hi Vivek

    Patch installation guide is writte README file inside the patchset. Just read and follow the steps. It’s very simple

  25. Laitan Akinya Says:

    Hello Kamran,
    I’ve been following your steps installing Oracle 11g R2 on solaris 10.
    Everything’s been working well until i changed directory to database and executed the $ ./runInstaller command

    -bash-3.00$ cd database
    -bash-3.00$ ls
    doc response runInstaller stage
    install rpm sshsetup welcome.html
    -bash-3.00$ ./runInstaller

    Here’s my OS version

    “Sun Microsystems Inc. SunOS 5.10 Generic January 2005″

    Is it compatible with 11g R2 or i need later Solaris OS.

    Regards

  28. venkat Says:

    hi kamran,

    oracle 11g r2 installation check fails at 3 packages because of

    libaio-develop-0.3.106
    unixODBC-2.211
    unixODBC-devel 2.2.11

    packages not installed.

    to overcome this we will install rpms from os cd.

    my question is instead of installing this three rpms later, con’t we install at the time of os installation only.

    Please let me know. I hope this comment will answer.

    Thanks a lot.

  29. Kamran Agayev A. Says:

    It’s not possible to install *all* packages directly from the installation, they should be installed after the installation

  33. Kamran Agayev A. Says:

    Just make sure you’ve set PATH variable correctly
    export PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/bin:$PATH

    And make sure you’ve already set ORACLE_HOME environment variable

  34. Kamran Agayev A. Says:

    It seems you use 64bit installation on 32bit OS or vice verse

  35. Cami Says:

    Thank you for your answer, I export environments variables and work ok, but when I shutdown my machine and start again, trying to start SQLPlus but I cannot.

    This message is displaying: “Connected to an idle instance.”
    and when I try to execute some query and error display.

    Please can you help me?

    You should find those package under the unpacked folder of the installation file

  54. Yogesh Says:

    Hi Kamran

    I tried to find and search the same in unpacked folder with SUNW* i could not find any file naming with starting with this .

    Like what we find in ../PRODUCT folder of the solaris 10 64 bit installation folder.

    Looking for your reply.Size of unziped folder is only 430 MB.

    Hi Karman,

    First of all I must thanks you for this clear explanation, I followed your guide twice carefully (except that I choosed “Host-Only” not “Bridged” for the VM network), but every time I received an Error while “Oracle Net Configuration Assistant” phase, the error message says that “[INS-20802] Oracle Net Configuration Assistant failed, Cause – The plug-in failed in its perform method”, I skipped this step but of course another error message received says “Enterprise manager configuration failed due to the following error – Listener is not up or database service is not registered with it”

    I searched Oracle Metalink for [INS-20802] and the closest answer is “According to Bug.9540254, this is related to the issue with Windows Server 2003 when IPv6 is configured; after disable ipv6 NIC, the issue was resolved. The behavior only occurs when IPv6 is installed on Windows 2003. ” but the problem is that I’m sure I disabled the IPv6 while installing Solaris !!

    so please help, Thanks in advance

    Hi Buyne
    Thanks for the feedback my friend, I appreciate it

  60. Vincent Says:

    A great walkthrough, thanks!

    One thing is that the installer demands that the swap file (orcl_swap) is at least 4 GB, once this is corrected it is smooth sailing :)

    Hi Yogesh

    #I am trying to install oracle 11r2 on solaris 11 .
    #But some how not able to install packages on the server.To install the packages internet #connection is must? or is there any other workaround ?

    Solaris 11 have IPS (Image Packaging System) an not SRV4-Packaging (Solaris10).
    If you want to use the official oracle repository, yes – you need an internet connection.
    But you are able to host your own solaris11-repository, then you dont need an internet connection.

    Hi kamran;

    I am very eager to install 11g on solaris OS. I was searching torrent links but they are not workable and not good.
    If any site provides official link to download solaris10 freely , please provide the link.
    Way of expression is good that’s why i am planning to install 11g on solaris.

    Good job kamran. Thanks.

    Hi Kamran,
    Thanks a lot for the step by step guide for Oracle 11g R2 installation.

    I got stuck at 43% installation & your blog helped to overcome by placing all the files of Components folder of second zip file into Components folder of 1st zip file. Voila it went smooth without any issues.
    However I installed only the db software & no database as I have to create a custom database.
    I am not able to open the Oracle Enterprise Manager. Can u pls help? When I checked for any oracle services running on the system by ps _eaf | grep -i oracle, there was no output. Seems no services are running. Pls help.
    OS= Solaris 10 update 10 x86
    Oracle DB = 11g R2 Enterprise Edition.
    Regards,
    Kuldeep

  66. Kamran Agayev A. Says:

    Hi Kuldeep
    You need to export PATH variable to make OS to find dbca executable. Or you can run it directly from $ORACLE_HOME/bin directory
    Go to the folder where you installed Oracle, switch to the bin folder and run dbca executable

  67. Kuldeep Says:

    Hi Kamran,

    Thanks. I got the dbca & it is running now however can u pls share the list of Environment Variables to be set permanently for oracle user. I have to do it manually every time.
    regards

  68. Kamran Agayev A. Says:

    Check this link to get more information on Environment variables
    http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B19306_01/server.102/b15658/admin_ora.htm#i46652
