    Unanswered: Installation of Oracle Database for AIX 6.1

    OS: AIX 6.1
    DB: Oracle Database 10gR2

    We have a new database server and my task is to install Oracle Database in it. I was planning to perform the following step based on the documentation I've read.

    1. Apply Patch 6613550 (p6613550_10203_AIX64-5L)
    2. Install Oracle Database 10.2.0.1 (10gr2_aix5l64_database.cpio)
    3. Install Patch Set Release 10.2.0.3 (p5337014_10203_AIX64-5L)
    4. Create a database

    The thing is that one of my colleague said that there is an Oracle DB software already incorporated with patches. Is it true? And I wanted to know if I'm on the right track based on the steps I plan to do.

    Documentation I've read so far:
    Release Notes for AIX 5L Based Systems (64-Bit)
    Database Installation Guide for AIX 5L Based Systems (64-Bit)
    Database Quick Installation Guide for AIX 5L Based Systems (64-Bit)

    Cool

    The steps should be:

    1) Install Oracle Database 10.2.0.1 (software only)
    • 10gr2_aix5l64_database.cpio.gz

    2) Upgrade to 10.2.0.5 and apply latest CPU patch to the installed Oracle home.
    • Patch 8202632: 10.2.0.5.0 PATCH SET FOR ORACLE DATABASE SERVER
    • Patch 13632738: CPUAPR2012 DATABASE 10.2.0.5


    3) Create the new database with dbca

    Thank you Sir LKBrwn_DBA!

    Based on the Release Notes
    5.11 Installing Oracle Database on AIX 6.1
    You must install Oracle Database Patch 6613550, Oracle Database 10.2.0.1, and Oracle Database Patch set 10.2.0.3 to proceed with the installation on AIX 6L. The following section lists all the installation steps:
    1. Download patch 6613550:
    a. Log on to My Oracle Support (formerly OracleMetalink). You must have a
    valid My Oracle Support Identifier (CSI) for it. Refer to https://support.oracle.com for more information.
    b. Enter 6613550 in the Quick Find field, click Go.
    c. Download patch 6613550 into a temporary directory on your computer.
    d. Switch user to root:
    $ su -
    password:
    #
    e. Unzip the files of this patch into /temp folder:
    cd /temp
    f. Run the rootpre.sh script as follows:
    # ./rootpre.sh

    I'll perform this before installing 10.2.0.1.0 right? Is the 10.2.0.5.0 compatible with Oracle Forms/Reports 6i? Just asking because that's the application we are using. Thanks again for your kind reply!

    Sir Sir LKBrwn_DBA,

    Patch 13632738: CPUAPR2012 DATABASE 10.2.0.5
    Oracle support said "You do not have privileges to download Extended Support patches." Is it ok not to apply/install this CPU patch? We are only using single instance in our production.

    Is it essential to apply CPUs? No, your database will still work.
    Is it advisable to apply CPUs? Yes - as the name suggests, they're critical patch updates.
    90% of users' problems can be resolved by punching them - the other 10% by switching off their PCs.

    You cannot apply patch if you have not at least installed the Oracle software.
