    Question

    Hi! ALL,
    I have already installed 8.1.6 on solaris under username "oracle8i". Now I want to install 8.1.7 and I have created a new user called "oracle". The problem is when I run "runInstaller " it is giving the following error
    "you do not have permission to write to the inventory /data/oracle/8.1.6/oraInventory. Installation cannot continue. Permission denied."
    I am trying to install in directory /data1/oracle817
    ORACLE_HOME is not pointing towards /data/oracle/8.1.6

    I am not able to figure out why it is happening.
    Please treat this as urgnt.
    thanks in advance
    There Nothing You cannot Do, The problem is HOW.

    Hi

    It sounds like your dir/files does not have write permission.

    It is know that for Unix/Solaris platform, we need to give the CHMOD permission for the entire Directory/Files thro ROOT directory.

    Hope this will help you...

    Hi

    What is the group for your oracle user. It should be oinstall.

    set group as oinstall and try. I hope this helps you.

    Try edit or rename file /var/opt/oracle/oraInst.loc.
    There is a pointer to Oracle Inventory. This file is created during installation.
