Hello,

I have no background in oracle or anything like it but by some misfortune have been given the task of implementing it for a large greenhouse wholesaler (my work).

Here is my problem currently:

Using the instructions listed here: (cant use links yet)
ww.oracle.com/technology/obe/ovm/ovmel5pvmdb11gr1/ovmel5pvmdb11gr1.htm#.
I have installed Oracle VM server, downloaded the iso for OEL R5 U4 and tried mounting it as instructed.

After the command:
mount -t iso9660 -o ro,loop /OVS/iso_pool/Enterprise-R5-U4-Server-i386-dvd.iso /el/EL5-x86

I hit enter and get the following message:
/OVS/iso_pool/Enterprise-R5-U4-Server-i386-dvd.iso: No such file or directory

I downloaded the dvd iso from //edelivery.oracle.com.

I am installing on a dell poweredge 2900 with dual Intel Xeon 3Ghz cpu's and 4gig of ram and yes it has a DVDROM.

Can anyone please explain if I am doing something wrong, I have followed the instructions to the letter and am now stuck here. I am now downloading the file again on an ubuntu machine thinking that oracle might not like the windows version or something, I really have no clue at this point.

Thanks for any help with this issue.

Hi,

Did you check it?

ls -la /OVS/iso_pool

Yes, the instructions actually have me check:
ls -al /el/EL5-x86

But, in the past couple of days messing around with this i have also done the command you gave me:

ls -al /OVS/iso_pool

The line above prints out a couple of lines:
drwxr-xr-r 2 root root 4069 Oct 2 10:27
drwxr-xr-r 0 root root 4069 Oct 5 05:27

Similar lines are printed when I check the /el/EL5-x86

I'm sorry Buddy but you don't have this file really. Smile For example in my Distr directory I have a iso file of CentOS linux CentOS5_3.iso.
ls -la /home/mike/Distr
total 4376616
drwxrwxr-x  3 mike mike       4096 Oct  5 22:18 .
drwx------ 32 mike mike       4096 Oct  5 23:08 ..
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 3971022848 Oct  4 21:41 CentOS5_3.iso

or
ls -la /home/mike/Distr | grep CentOS
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 3971022848 Oct  4 21:41 CentOS5_3.iso


Try to find it

cd /
find -name "*.iso"

The file is on a DVD, the instructions are trying to put the file in a directory on the Oracle VM server so it can use it later to create a virtual guest.

These are the instructions, I cant post links yet, but if you put "w" in front of this it will take you to the instructions:

ww.oracle.com/technology/obe/ovm/ovmel5pvmdb11gr1/ovmel5pvmdb11gr1.htm#.

6.

The prerequisites section instructed you to download the ISO files for Enterprise Linux 5 from http://edelivery.oracle.com/linux. Move the CD ISO files for Enterprise Linux 5 to directory /OVS/iso_pool.


Did you download it?

Yes, I downloaded the single DVD file, I did not download the 5 CD files.

5. During the installation of the operating system for a paravirtualized machine, the location of the install media can not be changed, thus installing directly from multiple CD ISO files is not possible. Steps 7 through 9 show the steps to create a directory tree of the CD ISO files for installing the operating system.

The install can be made directly from a single ISO file such as the DVD ISO of Enterprise Linux 5. Step 11 shows how to setup the install from a single DVD ISO.

(Skipping steps 6-10 as they are for multiple CD installation)

11. This step is for setting up installation from a single DVD ISO file. If you have multiple CD ISO files skip this step.

mount -t iso9660 -o ro,loop /OVS/iso_pool/Enterprise-R5-U1-Server-i386-dvd.iso /el/EL5-x86

The file Enterprise-R5-U1-Server-i386-dvd.iso needs to exist in the /OVS/iso_pool directory. Simply copy this file to the /OVS/iso_pool directory.

Hi,

You have to find your DVD
ls -la /dev | grep dvd

if it hda (dvdrom -> hda)
then
dd if=/dev/hda of=/OVS/iso_pool/Enterprise-R5-U4-Server-i386-dvd.iso

I tried your last 2 options and was able to get it to actually open the disk, but when it did it gave the same "no such file or directory" error message.

I know the iso file is on the disk, but being new to Oracle and Linux in general, im not sure if i can download it using windows and winrar and then try to copy it to Oracle. Do I need to try to save this file to the disk some other way?

I have actually made an image with this iso and installed OEL on a test machine, so I know it is working. I just cant get the iso from the DVD to the directory on the server right now.

How did you burn the iso to disk? By the sounds of it, I assume you created a DVD from the iso file.

Do you still have the iso on a Windoze box? If so, simply ftp the iso to the Linux box or burn the iso as a file and not as an image to a DVD and copy the iso file from the DVD to the Linux box.

Before coming to the forums, I tried everything I could think of regarding the disk. I burned the image to the disk
I copied the iso file to the disk zipped
I copied the files to the disk and put them in a folder and renamed it to the file name
I did all sorts of things I knew wouldn't work.

I think what I need is a simple command to copy the files from the disk to the directory on the server. My guide here doesn't mention how to do that and I can't find anywhere on the internet that explains it.

I thought the mount -t iso9660 -o ro,loop /OVS/iso_pool/Enterprise.... command did that but apparently it does not.

I just need to know how to get the files from the DVD disk...to...the directory on the server

Burning the iso as a file and not an image wielded the same results, "no such file or directory", I believe the instructions assume the reader carries some knowledge of this and omits the steps to actually copy the contents of the dvd to the server directory.

Assuming the iso file was burned as a simple file to the DVD, once you stick the DVD in the drive and it is mounted, what is the output of:

ls /media/cdrom

I found this line on some other forums:
cp /dev/dvd /OVS/iso_pool

This allows me to copy the contents of the DVD to the directory, but I don't know if it will keep the file in a .ISO format so i can use it later to create a virtual guest.

I'll keep you updated and thanks for your patience thus far.
