Installation Cookbooks: Installing Oracle9i - Page 3

December 30, 2003

Performing the installation

Insert CD 1 of 3 from the set of CD-ROMs titled

Oracle9i
Database (64-bit)
Release 2 (9.2.0.1.0) for Sun SPARC Solaris
CD 1 of 3 (the other two are 2 of 3 and 3 of 3)

and refer to the table below for actions to take in each window displayed by the Oracle Universal Installer. Minimize the File Manager window after the CD-ROM is mounted (Solaris Volume Manager mounts the CD-ROM for you). As the UNIX user oracle9, start the installation by typing /cdrom/disk1/runInstaller at a UNIX prompt. Do not navigate to /cdrom or /cdrom/disk1 or you will run into problems ejecting the CD-ROM from this shell window. Do not double click the runInstaller icon in the File Manager window - use the UNIX command line.

You may encounter other windows during the installation process for a variety of reasons (improper system setup, lack of file permissions, non-existent paths, etc.). The OUI windows are fairly self-explanatory as to what needs to be done to correct the problem.

In the windows that appear below, take the action(s) indicated.
