I try to install Oracle 8.1.6 on OpenUnix with OUI. I have an error during the installation (There was a problem in accessing the staging area.Please make sure the specified value or source and destination are valid)
It means the path OUI read for the staging area is bad/does not exist. Make sure the path reflects where the CD-ROM (or from wherever) is located (/cdrom/oracle/...., not /cdrom/oracle#1/...).
General Notes For Oracle Server - Standard Edition On UnixWare (SCO):
RDBMS 8.1.7 is the terminal release for this platform.
Standard Edition is only supported on machine types that have a maxmum of 4 CPU slots in the cabinet enclosure.
If the Server product is 64-bit then 64-bit hardware (processors) is required.
7.0 requires O/S patch ptf7003g.
See "Issues" for 7.1 O/S patches.
Patches can be obtained from the public SCO ftp site.
