I am trying to install a oracle 8.1.7 on a fresh solaris box..
Can anyone tell me the steps and as well any known issues..
Any steps to prepare the box for this installation etc.,
I am going to install only the server but the database, we have our scripts.. Thanks
you can find step by step installation guide on technet.oracle.com
There are so many things that are not mentioned in the technet. The problems I am facing are some bugs that are only found out 3-4 days ago.. Metalink has some docs that tell what you should be doing and expecting for 8.1.7 installation, but nothing can beat the experiences we are facing.. I need such issues so I can expect them and prevent them..
I just installed 8.1.7 on an Solrais 2.8 yesterday.
The only thing, which the doc is suck, is:
You need to run runInstaller in other directory other
than /cdrom/oracle8, and Oracle doc. says
run it under /cdrom/oracle8.
If you run runInstaller under /cdrom/oracle8, you will
not be able to switch to Disk2.
So, I did install twice!
I believe there is a release note addenum which explains this
issue....pretty straight forward unix o/s issue
Maybe, you are right.
But for seasoned DBAs, who really reads the f***
