    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..
    Thanks

    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***
    install doc?
