    Unhappy Unanswered: Oracle 9i iAS (Infrastucture) : Reinstall PBs

    HEllo,

    Working on Red Hat Enterpsie 3 (ES), and Oracle 9i Database and iAS.
    ----
    Trying to reinstall Oracle 9i iAS (infrastructure).
    -----
    I deleted the directory three with rm -rf ... +
    I removed oraInventory. Note that I have 2 instances of Oracle Database installed.
    Then I rebooted, launching OUI, it told me I had no Oracle Products INstalled.

    Then when trying to start Oracle 9i iAS Infrastrucutre, the same message again:

    Install has detected an invalid Active EMD Home configured as
    /u01/app/oracle_linux/product_iAS. Possible
    cause for this erro may be a previous installation of Oracle 9iAS that was not
    completely installed or deiinstalled. Please perform a deinstall on the home.

    What should I do about this error messge that does not go away ?

    Are you going to continue to open new posts to get help with the same problem?

    You thought that you could fool OUI by doing some housekeeping (rm -rf).
    Obviously you missed one or more lingering traces of previous installs.
    Using newfs & starting from scratch with a fresh install will improve your chances for success.

    P.S.
    Do NOT install any Oracle s/w prior to installing 9iAS R2 Infrastructure & then installing the 9iAS R2 mid-tier s/w.

    Unless somebody is holding a gun to your head, avoid 9iAS R2 & install 10gAS.
    You'll have to apply more than a half dozen patches to get 9iAS R2 (V9.0.2.0.1) to a state where it will actually function as designed.
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.

    Unhappy Uninstall + Reinstall PBs

    Hello,

    It is my understanding that I should install Oracle 9ir2 Database on my Linux Red Hat server Enterprise 3 (ES).

    That is what I have now. I have 2 instances of ORacle 9i Database installed on my server.

    PT

    PS: I guess I should define a new filesystem and reinstall Oracle iAS 10g like you suggest ?
    I can download that from the Oracle Web Site at OTN ?

    PS2: My server does not recognise the newfs command. Any other suggestions to reinstall Oracle iAS Infrastructure ? It is my understanding that I need to have Oracle iAS Infrastructure installed before Oracle iAS Application Server, is that so ?

    What is a "PB"?


    >It is my understanding that I need to have Oracle iAS Infrastructure installed before Oracle iAS Application Server, is that so ?
    YES!

    I suspect that the initial re-install failed because of a line (or 2) in the oratab file.

    Unhappy oratab file

    Hello,

    Here is my oratab file:
    -----
    [oracle@Linux2005 app]$ cd /etc
    [oracle@Linux2005 etc]$ more oratab
    #

    # This file is used by ORACLE utilities. It is created by root.sh
    # and updated by the Database Configuration Assistant when creating
    # a database.

    # A colon, ':', is used as the field terminator. A new line terminates
    # the entry. Lines beginning with a pound sign, '#', are comments.
    #
    # Entries are of the form:
    # $ORACLE_SID:$ORACLE_HOME:<N|Y>:
    #
    # The first and second fields are the system identifier and home
    # directory of the database respectively. The third filed indicates
    # to the dbstart utility that the database should , "Y", or should not,
    # "N", be brought up at system boot time.
    #
    # Multiple entries with the same $ORACLE_SID are not allowed.
    #
    #
    *:/u01/app/oracle/product/9.2.0.4:N
    ORCL:/u01/app/oracle/product/9.2.0.4:Y
    *:/u01/app/oracle_linux/product/9.2.0.4:N
    ORCLNX:/u01/app/oracle_linux/product/9.2.0.4:N
    *:/u01/app/oracle_linux/product_iAS:N
    [oracle@Linux2005 etc]$

    You are going to have a lot of orphan files left over because you didn't unstill correctly. My suggestion is to reload the RedHat OS and then start your install from scratch.
