I upgraded my server to Linux Red Hat Enterprise 3 (ES). I installed Oracle 9i Database, created a started database and imported the data from my export dump file from ORacle 8i.
For all of you who contributed by comments and feedback I am eternaly gratefull.
However, my work is not over. I still have to bring my DB online of the network and then install Oracle 9i iAS to go from Client/Server to Web.
During the installation of Oracle 9i iAS, I ran into the following Pop-Up message:
This is the Pop-Up message that I get, when installing Oracle 9i iAS:
Your local hsot name database file (typically /etc/hosts) is not configured
properly. This file should have an entry of the form:
On Solaris sustems, the following files should also contain the fully qualified hostname, including the domain name:
/etc/nodename, /etc/net/ticlts/hosts, /etc/net/ticots/hosts,
/etc/net/ticotsord/hosts, and any files in /etc whose names begin with "hostname"
In some of the above files, the hostanme may occur more than once, in which
case all occurences hould be changed. Please correct your local host name database file, reboot the host, and restart the installation.
Failure to properly configure this file may result in product runtime issues regarding proper hostname resolution.
I tried to edit my /etc/hosts file as follows and reboot my computer to no avail. The message keeps coming back. I don't have any of the other files mentioned under /etc. Here is my /etc/hosts file:
# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail.
