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.
