Installation Cookbooks: Installing Oracle9i Developer Suite - Page 3

February 12, 2004

Pre-installation Tasks

Install operating system and J2SE patch clusters as needed. OS patch installs generally require a reboot.

Create a UNIX account owner (and group, if this is the first Oracle product installed on your system) for the iDS files. You can create the owner (group) with the useradd (groupadd) command, admintool (Solaris 8), smc (Solaris 9), or manually edit the /etc/passwd and /etc/group files followed by issuing the pwconv command. The name of the account used for this example and throughout the remainder of this guide is ids. Below is an example of the lines you can add to the /etc/passwd and /etc/group files:

/etc/passwd
ids:x:105:20001::/opt1/ora9ids:/bin/csh

/etc/group
dba::20001:ids
oinstall::20002:ids

As root, create the home directory for ids and change ownership of that directory to ids:

root@sun5: mkdir /opt1/ora9ids
root@sun5: chown -R ids:dba /opt1/ora9ids

After editing these files as root, and issuing the pwconv command, the UNIX user account named ids is created with a userid of 105. The user named ids has a home directory of /opt1/ora9ids, has a default shell environment using the C-shell, and is a member of the dba (primary) and oinstall groups. The dba and oinstall groups were also created after the pwconv command if they did not already exist.

Become the user named ids by issuing su - ids at a UNIX prompt. Create the following directory structure for later use: mkdir -p /opt1/ora9ids/app/oracle/product/9.0.2, where /opt1/ora9ids matches the default home directory

Create a .cshrc file for ids by using the sample provided at the end of this document. If you copied the sample file, edit it as necessary. Ensure the DISPLAY environment variable is set to where you want the Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) image to appear. Ensure the TMP environment variable points to a location where at least 500MB of free space is available, such as the /tmp directory.

Installing Developer Suite and PatchSet 1

Assuming you are using a CD to install iDS, insert the CD into the CD-ROM drive. Solaris Volume Management mounts the CD for you.

As the UNIX user named ids, start the installation by issuing the following command:

ids@sun5: /cdrom/cdrom0/Disk1/runInstaller

or if installing via the downloaded file,

ids@sun5: /<path to Disk1>/runInstaller

The Oracle Universal Installer should start. Execute the steps indicated below for each window that appears. These are the same windows that appear as screen shots in pages 3-2 to 3-17 of Oracle's installation guide for iDS.

Window Title

Step(s) to Perform

Welcome

Click Next

Inventory Location (only appears if this is the first Oracle product installed on your machine)

Specify a path (ex: /opt1/oraInventory)

UNIX Group Name (appears same as above)

Enter dba, click Next

File Locations

Verify the Source path (file or CD-ROM)

(ends with /Disk1/stage/products.jar)

Destination

Name: iDS_HOME

Path: /opt1/ora9ids/app/oracle/product/9.0.2

Click Next

Installation Type

Configuration Tools

Wait for next window

Run root.sh (this may appear elsewhere in the sequence of events)

You will be directed to run the root.sh script (as root) in the ORACLE_HOME directory. Use another shell window as root to run this script. Enter a location for a local bin directory. Ignore the error about ./network/agent html.

Oracle Net Configuration Assistant windows (see Note below)

Same wizard used in other Oracle products. In the windows that follow:

  • Leave "Perform Typical" unchecked
  • Select No for Directory Usage configuration
  • Use Local for Naming Methods configuration
  • Provide the name of a local database for Net Service Name configuration (typically uses port 1521 and TCP)

End of Installation

Click Exit

NOTE: The Oracle Net Configuration Assistant creates the tnsnames.ora and sqlnet.ora files in $ORACLE_HOME/network/admin. If you already have these files referenced by the TNS_ADMIN environment variable, you can continue to use them. You can also copy the two files from the database product location into $ORACLE_HOME/network/admin for Oracle9iDS.

Install PatchSet 1 for Oracle9i Developer Suite

As ids, copy the patch file on the patch CD-ROM (p2729569_9021_SOLARIS.zip) to $ORACLE_HOME. Unzip the file and cd to the $ORACLE_HOME/install/solaris directory and run the runInstaller command (not the runInstaller.sh command). You can also unzip the file from a remote directory into the ORACLE_HOME location.

The patch process requires an upgrade of the Oracle Universal Installer, and that must be installed first.
