oracle hangs during install, after config assistants ...
i'm installing Oracle 10g (10.2.0) on opensolaris..
i followed the instructions listed on this web page,
as well as those listed in the Oracle's installation guide.
i chose basic install, and all seemed to go well, and i got
to the window that for that the Network/Database/iSQLPlus
all the configs ran to completion, and the last lines listed
in the install log was:
> INFO: Configuration assistant «Oracle Database Configuration Assistant» succeeded
> INFO: Command = /opt/oracle/dwfms.product/10.2.0/db_1/bin/isqlplusctl start
> iSQL*Plus 10.2.0.1.0

> iSQL*Plus started.
> INFO: Configuration assistant «iSQL*Plus Configuration Assistant» succeeded
> INFO: All the tools have been executed Successfully
there are no more entries after this.
ps(1) shows the following Oracle processes running:

has anybody encountered this?
is there something else i need to do, to get the runInstaller
to run to full completion?
what other tasks is involved after the Config Assistant
phase ? Can i run these manually ?
Oracle admin guides mentioned this directory at different
places: /var/opt/oracle .
this is not present on my system. is this due to the incomplete
Thanks Very Much again,
Seems you are ok:

oracle now starts after reboot ... after ...
for the assurance :-)
i wasn't able to get oracle to start after a reboot.
1. after reading the scripts, found that dbstart had
hardcoded a path variable:
to fix, set ORACLE_HOME_LISTNER to $ORACLE_HOME .
2. noticed that /opt/var/oracle/oratab was not
executed the $ORACLE_HOME/root.sh
edited the oratab file, to change the "N" at the
end of the line, to "Y".
dbstart checks for lines with "Y" for databases
3. when running dbstart on the command line, the
system complained that oracle did not permissions
to start the processes.
saw that the oracle directories were owned by
me. suspect that because i killed runInstaller
after it hang'ed, it didn't get around to changing the
cd(1) to $ORACLE_HOME/../..
which for me is the directory 10.2.0 (under product).
chown -R oracle:dba .
set the directories for oracle accesses.
4. this time, at the command line, dbstart ran okay,
but ps(1) did not show the listener processes.
network/logs/listener.log shows that the listener
process was still having permission problems.
didn't say what resources were involved ...
after running truss over the process, saw that the
listener process was getting EPERMs when accessing
the dir belonged to root, and the 2 files created in
that dir belonged to me.
suspect that these were created when i ran the scripts
under different user accounts, when i was debugging the
shutdown the oracle related processes, removed
5. rebooted the system, now the processes are started.
not sure if all the required processes are there,
don't know enough about oracle arch ...
going through the oracle admin guides and concept
doc now ..
hopefully, somebody else who is installing oracle on
opensolaris (2009.06), will find this info of some help.
