    Hi,

    I am trying to download the oracle software from the oracle site for solaris. There are 2 versions : 1) 64 bit and another is release 3.

    How do I know which version to download? I currently have an oracle database. How do I know which version that one is using.

    v$version view doesn't give any specifics on OS. To find what kinda installation you have for oracle, type in at command prompt in $O_H/bin directory

    $file oracle
    oracle: ELF 32-bit MSB executable SPARC Version 1, dynamically linked, not stripped

    64-bit Support: As root, execute isainfo –v at a UNIX prompt. If you see the following output, your server supports 64-bit as well as 32-bit applications.

    64-bit sparcv9 applications
    32-bit sparc applications

    If you do not see the 64-bit line or receive a “Command not found” error, contact your UNIX system administrator and verify your intended server is 64-bit enabled.
