1 Reviewing Information About This Guide
This guide describes how to complete a default installation of Oracle Database Client
on a system that does not have any Oracle software installed on it. If there is an
existing Oracle software installation on this system, then refer to Oracle Database Client
Installation Guide for Oracle Solaris for more detailed installation instructions.
It describes how to install one of the following installation types:
■
■
■
Instant Client: Enables you to install only the shared libraries required by Oracle
Call Interface (OCI), Oracle C++ Call Interface (OCCI), Pro*C, or Java database
connectivity (JDBC) OCI applications. This installation type requires much less
disk space as compared to the other Oracle Database Client installation types.
Administrator: Enables applications to connect to an Oracle Database instance on
the local system or on a remote system. It also provides tools that enable you to
administer Oracle Database.
Runtime: Enables applications to connect to an Oracle Database instance on the
local system or on a remote system.

2 Logging In to the System as root
Before you install the Oracle software, you must complete several tasks as the root
user. To log in as the root user, complete one of the following procedures:
Unless you intend to complete a silent-mode installation, you
must install the software from an X Window System workstation, an X
terminal, or a PC or other system with X server software installed.
Note:
■
Following are the steps for installing the software from an X Window System
workstation or X terminal:
1.
Start a local terminal session, for example, an X terminal (xterm).
2.
If you are not installing the software on the local system, then enter the
following command to enable the remote host to display X applications on the
local X server:
$ xhost fully_qualified_remote_host_name
For example:
$ xhost somehost.us.example.com
3.
If you are not installing the software on the local system, then use the ssh,
rlogin, or telnet command to connect to the system where you want to
install the software:
$ telnet fully_qualified_remote_host_name
4.
If you are not logged in as the root user, then enter the following command to
switch user to root:
$ sudo sh
password:
#
■
Following are the steps for installing the software from a PC or other system with
X server software:
2
If necessary, refer to your X server documentation for more
information about completing this procedure. Depending on the X
server software that you are using, you may have to complete the tasks
in a different order.
Note:
1.
Start the X server software.
2.
Configure the security settings of the X server software to permit remote hosts
to display X applications on the local system.
3.
Connect to the remote system where you want to install the software and start
a terminal session on that system, for example, an X terminal (xterm).
4.
If you are not logged in as the root user on the remote system, then enter the
following command to switch user to root:
$ sudo sh
password:
#
3 Checking the Hardware Requirements
The system must meet the following minimum hardware requirements:
■
Memory Requirements
■
System Architecture
■
Disk Space Requirements
3.1 Memory Requirements
The following are the memory requirements for installing Oracle Database 11g Release
2 (11.2):
■
At least 256 MB of physical RAM.
To determine the physical RAM size, enter the following command:
# /usr/sbin/prtconf | grep "Memory size"
If the size of the physical RAM is less than the required size, then you must install
more memory before continuing.
■
The following table describes the relationship between installed RAM and the
configured swap space recommendation:
On Oracle Solaris, if you use non-swappable memory, like
ISM, then you should deduct the memory allocated to this space from
the available RAM before calculating swap space.
Note:
RAM
Swap Space
256 MB
3 times the size of RAM
Between 256 MB and 512 MB
2 times the size of RAM
3
RAM
Swap Space
Between 512 MB and 2 GB
1.5 times the size of RAM
Between 2 GB and 16 GB
Equal to the size of RAM
More than 16 GB
16 GB
To determine the size of the configured swap space, enter the following command:
# /usr/sbin/swap -s
If necessary, refer to the operating system documentation for information about
how to configure additional swap space.
■
To determine the available RAM and swap space, enter the following command:
# sar -r i n
where, n is the number of seconds to delay for the next iterations and i is the
number of iterations you want to test.
Note:
■
■
Oracle recommends that you take multiple values for the available
RAM and swap space before finalizing a value. This is because the
available RAM and swap space keep changing depending on the
user interactions with the computer.
Contact your operating system vendor for swap space allocation
guidance for your server. The vendor guidelines supersede the
swap space requirements listed in this guide.
3.2 System Architecture
To determine whether the system architecture can run the software, enter the
following command:
# /bin/isainfo -kv
This command displays the processor type. Verify that the
processor architecture matches the Oracle software release to install. If
you do not see the expected output, then you cannot install the
software on this system.
Note:
3.3 Disk Space Requirements
The following are the disk space requirements for installing Oracle Database Client 11g
Release 2 (11.2):
■
The minimum disk space requirement for a client install in the /tmp directory is
180 MB.
To determine the amount of disk space available in the /tmp directory, enter the
following command:
# df -h /tmp
4
If there is less than 180 MB of free disk space available in the /tmp directory, then
complete one of the following steps:
■
■
■
■
Delete unnecessary files from the /tmp directory to meet the disk space
requirement.
Set the TMP and TMPDIR environment variables when setting the oracle user’s
environment
Extend the file system that contains the /tmp directory. If necessary, contact the
system administrator for information about extending file systems.
To determine the amount of free disk space available, enter the following
command:
On Oracle Solaris 10:
# df -h

5 Creating Required Operating System Group and User
The following local operating system groups and users are required if you are
installing Oracle Database:
8
■
The Oracle Inventory group (typically, oinstall)
■
The Oracle software owner (typically, oracle)
To determine whether these group and user exist, and if necessary, to create them,
follow these steps:
1.
To determine whether the oinstall group exists, enter the following command:
# more /var/opt/oracle/oraInst.loc
If the output of this command shows the oinstall group name, then the group
exists.
If the oraInst.loc file exists, then the output from this command is similar to the
following:
inventory_loc=/u01/app/oracle/oraInventory
inst_group=oinstall
The inst_group parameter shows the name of the Oracle Inventory group,
oinstall.
2.
If necessary, enter the following commands to create the oinstall group:
# /usr/sbin/groupadd oinstall
3.
To determine whether the oracle user exists and belongs to the correct groups,
enter the following command:
# id -a oracle
If the oracle user exists, this command displays information about the groups to
which the user belongs. The output should be similar to the following, indicating
that oinstall is the primary group and dba is a secondary group:
uid=440(oracle) gid=200(oinstall) groups=201(dba),202(oper)
4.
If necessary, complete one of the following actions:
■
If the oracle user exists, but its primary group is not oinstall or it is not a
member of the dba group, then enter the following command:
# /usr/sbin/usermod -g oinstall -G dba oracle
■
If the oracle user does not exist, enter the following command to create it:
# /usr/sbin/useradd -g oinstall [-G dba] oracle
This command creates the oracle user and specifies oinstall as the primary
group and dba as an optional secondary group.
5.
Enter the following command to set the password of the oracle user:
# passwd -r files oracle
6 Creating Required Directories
Create directories with names similar to the following, and specify the correct owner,
group, and permissions for them:
■
The Oracle base directory
■
An optional Oracle data file directory
9
Before you create an Oracle base directory, you must identify an appropriate file
system with sufficient free disk space.
If you do not want to create a separate Oracle data file
directory, you can install the data files in a subdirectory of the Oracle
base directory. However, this is not recommended for production
databases.
Note:
To determine where to create these directories:
1.
Enter the following command to display information about all mounted file
systems:
# df -k
This command displays information about all the file systems mounted on the
system, including:
■
■
■
The physical device name
The total amount, used amount, and available amount of disk space, in
kilobytes
The mount point directory for that file system
2.
From the display, identify either one or two file systems that meet the disk space
requirements mentioned earlier in this section.
3.
Note the name of the mount point directory for each file system that you
identified.
In the following examples, /u01 is the mount point directory used for the software,
and /u02 is the mount point directory used for the Oracle data file directory. You must
specify the appropriate mount point directories for the file systems on your system.
To create the required directories and specify the correct owner, group, and
permissions for them:
Note: In the following procedure, replace /u01 and /u02 with the
appropriate mount point directories that you identified in Step 3
previously.
1.
Enter the following command to create subdirectories in the mount point directory
that you identified for the Oracle base directory:
# mkdir -p /u01/app/oracle
2.
If you intend to use a second file system for the Oracle Database files, then create
an oradata subdirectory in the mount point directory that you identified for the
Oracle data file directory (shown as /u02 in the examples):
# mkdir /u02/oradata
3.
Change the owner and group of the directories that you created to the oracle user
and the oinstall group:
# chown -R oracle:oinstall /u01/app/oracle
# chown -R oracle:oinstall /u02/oradata
10
4.
Change the permissions on the directories that you created to 775:
# chmod -R 775 /u01/app/oracle
# chmod -R 775 /u02/oradata
7 Configuring the oracle User’s Environment
You run Oracle Universal Installer from the oracle account. However, before you start
Oracle Universal Installer, you must configure the environment of the oracle user. To
configure the environment, you must:
■
Set the default file mode creation mask (umask) to 022 in the shell startup file.
■
Set the DISPLAY environment variable.
To set the oracle user’s environment:
1.
Start a new terminal session, for example, an X terminal (xterm).
2.
Enter the following command to ensure that X Window applications can display
on this system:
$ xhost fully_qualified_remote_host_name
For example:
$ xhost somehost.us.example.com
3.
If you are not logged in to the system where you want to install the software, then
log in to that system as the oracle user.
4.
If you are not logged in as the oracle user, then switch user to oracle:
$ su - oracle
5.
To determine the default shell for the oracle user, enter the following command:
$ echo $SHELL
6.
To run the shell startup script, enter one of the following commands:
■
Bash shell:
$ . ./.bash_profile
■
Bourne or Korn shell:
$ . ./.profile
■
C shell:
% source ./.login
7.
If you are not installing the software on the local computer, then run the following
command on the remote system to set the DISPLAY variable:
■
Bourne, Bash or Korn shell:
$ export DISPLAY=local_host:0.0
■
C shell:
% setenv DISPLAY local_host:0.0
11
In this example, local_host is the host name or IP address of the local computer
to use to display Oracle Universal Installer.
Run the following command on the remote system to check if the shell and the
DISPLAY environmental variable are set correctly:
echo $SHELL
echo $DISPLAY
Now to enable X applications, run the following commands on the local computer:
$ xhost + fully_qualified_remote_host_name
To verify that X applications display is set properly, run a X11 based program that
comes with the operating system such as xclock:
$ xclock
In this example, you can find xclock at /usr/X11R6/bin/xclocks. If the DISPLAY
variable is set properly, then you can see xclock on your computer screen.
See Also: PC-X Server or operating system vendor documents for
further assistance
8.
If you determined that the /tmp directory has less than 1 GB of free disk space,
then identify a file system with at least 1 GB of free space and set the TMP and
TMPDIR environment variables to specify a temporary directory on this file system:
a.
To determine the free disk space on each mounted file system use the
following command:
# df -h /tmp
b.
If necessary, enter commands similar to the following to create a temporary
directory on the file system that you identified, and set the appropriate
permissions on the directory:
$ sudo mkdir /mount_point/tmp
$ sudo chmod a+wr /mount_point/tmp
# exit
c.
Enter commands similar to the following to set the TMP and TMPDIR
environment variables:
*
Bourne, Bash, or Korn shell:
$ TMP=/mount_point/tmp
$ TMPDIR=/mount_point/tmp
$ export TMP TMPDIR
*
C shell:
% setenv TMP /mount_point/tmp
% setenv TMPDIR /mount_point/tmp
9.
Enter commands similar to the following to set the ORACLE_BASE and ORACLE_SID
environment variables:
■
Bourne, Bash, or Korn shell:
$ ORACLE_BASE=/u01/app/oracle
$ ORACLE_SID=sales
12
$ export ORACLE_BASE ORACLE_SID
■
C shell:
% setenv ORACLE_BASE /u01/app/oracle
% setenv ORACLE_SID sales
In this example, /u01/app/oracle is the Oracle base directory that you created or
identified earlier and sales is the database name (typically no more than five
characters).
10. Enter the following commands to ensure that the ORACLE_HOME and TNS_ADMIN
environment variables are not set:
■
Bourne, Bash, or Korn shell:
$ unset ORACLE_HOME
$ unset TNS_ADMIN
■
C shell:
% unsetenv ORACLE_HOME
% unsetenv TNS_ADMIN
Note: If the ORACLE_HOME environment variable is set, then Oracle
Universal Installer uses the value that it specifies as the default path
for the Oracle home directory. However, if you set the ORACLE_BASE
environment variable, then Oracle recommends that you unset the
ORACLE_HOME environment variable and choose the default path
suggested by Oracle Universal Installer.
8 Mounting the Product Disc
On most Oracle Solaris systems, the product disc mounts automatically when you
insert it into the drive. If the disc does not mount automatically, then follow these steps
to mount it:
1.
Switch user to root:
$ su - root
2.
If necessary, enter a command similar to the following to eject the currently
mounted disc, then remove it from the drive:
# eject
3.
Insert the disc into the disc drive.
4.
To verify that the disc mounted automatically, enter a command similar to the
following:
# ls /dvd/dvd0
5.
If this command fails to display the contents of the disc, then enter a command
similar to the following:
# /usr/sbin/mount -r -F hsfs /dev/dsk/cxtydzs2 /dvd
In this example, /dvd is the disc mount point directory and /dev/dsk/cxtydzs2 is
the device name for the disc device, for example /dev/dsk/c0t6d0s2.
13
6.
If Oracle Universal Installer displays the Disk Location dialog box, then enter the
disc mount point directory path. For example:
■
Disc mounted automatically:
/dvd/dvd0
■
Disc mounted manually:
/dvd
9 Installing Oracle Database Client
After configuring the oracle user’s environment, start Oracle Universal Installer and
install Oracle Database as follows:
■
To start Oracle Universal Installer, enter the following command:
$ /mount_point/db/runInstaller
If Oracle Universal Installer does not start, then refer to Oracle Database Client
Installation Guide for Oracle Solaris for information about how to troubleshoot X
Window display problems.
