Hi to all,

I want to install oracle 9i from a remote Windows XP machine on a Solaris 9 machine.
Can i install oracle 9i on a solaris 9 machine remotely.
The scenario is that the Oracle 9i software is stored on solaris machine but i need to install it from a remote machine.

i m able to access that machine using ssh and i m able to login to that machine as root.

Any specific actions to be performed remotely. Any precautions need to be taken.


Any help will be appreciated.

thanks,
tarun

Nothing.
All you need is an emulator like Exceed (if you use GUI to install oracle in unix box).
And Set your Display to the local windows machine

invoke the Exceed application that allows you work with X-windows.
Login to the remote machine (ssh or anyway you want. I never use telnet).
in the unix machine, set your display to point to your windows machine.
from unix machine, invoke sqlldr, the display / GUI should popup in windows machine.

Hi mahesh,

I was able to install Oracle remotely and when i tried to create the database manually as well as using dbca, i got same set of errors.

ORA-27302: failure occurred at: skgwreset1
ORA-27303: additional information: invalid shared ctx
ORA-27146: post/wait initialization failed
ORA-27300: OS system dependent operation:semget failed with status: 28
ORA-27301: Os failure message: No space left on device
ORA-27302: failure occurred at: sskgpcreates

Same set of error messages r there in the alert file also.

I set the environment variables to following values :

shmmax = 4294967295
shmmin = 1
shmmni = 100
shmseg = 10
semmns = 2000
semmsl = 1000
semmni = 100

RAM on server is 8 GB.

Following are the entries in the pfile.

But holdon.

In your previous posting:
>>I set the environment variables to following values :
>>shmmax = 4294967295
>>shmmin = 1
>>shmmni = 100
>>shmseg = 10
>>semmns = 2000
>>semmsl = 1000
>>semmni = 100

These are not environment variables. These are semaphore settings.

Hi mahesh,

see the steps,

>> I logged into that solaris machine as root and changed the semaphore settings as mentioned. and excerpt from /etc/system file

*
* Set an integer variable in the kernel or a module to a new value.
* This facility should be used with caution. See system(4).

* To set variables in 'unix':
*
* set nautopush=32
* set maxusers=40
*
* To set a variable named 'debug' in the module named 'test_module'
*
* set test_module:debug = 0x13
set shmsys:shminfo_shmmax=4294967295
set shmsys:shminfo_shmmni=100
set shmsys:shminfo_semmns=1024
set shmsys:shminfo_semmsl=256
set shmsys:shminfo_semmni=100
* Begin MDD root info (do not edit)

>> Then i restarted the server using command

>> Then i logged in as oracle user using EXCEED and tried the command. this is the excerpt from that prompt

Your semaphores settings are wrong.

Look into this. This is mine.
set shmsys:shminfo_shmmax=4294967295
set shmsys:shminfo_shmmin=1
set shmsys:shminfo_shmmni=100
set shmsys:shminfo_shmseg=10
set semsys:seminfo_semmns=3025
set semsys:seminfo_semmni=100
set semsys:seminfo_semmnu=3025
set semsys:seminfo_semmsl=3025
set msgsys:msginfo_msgmax=8192
set msgsys:msginfo_msgmnb=16384
set msgsys:msginfo_msgmni=3600


Some are shmsys.
Some are semsys.
You are not using semsys at all.
Your last three parameters should be semsys:xxxxx
Do not try the same settings. It may not work for you.
try with
SEMMNI 100 -- same as mine
SEMMNS 1024-- mine is different
SEMMSL 256 -- mine is different.

Hi

Can any one please help me on this:

set shmsys:shminfo_shmmax=4294967295
set shmsys:shminfo_shmmin=1
set shmsys:shminfo_shmmni=100
set shmsys:shminfo_shmseg=10
set semsys:seminfo_semmns=3025
set semsys:seminfo_semmni=100
set semsys:seminfo_semmnu=3025
set semsys:seminfo_semmsl=3025
set msgsys:msginfo_msgmax=8192
set msgsys:msginfo_msgmnb=16384
set msgsys:msginfo_msgmni=3600

What is the significance on having a # infront of any of the syntax in /etc/system/ file

Like:

#set shmsys:shminfo_shmmax=4294967295
#set shmsys:shminfo_shmmin=1
#set shmsys:shminfo_shmmni=100

Thanks a lot

Hi,

Thanks for the reply, but in the /etc/system/ file any thign starting with * looks like a comment, so needed to ask about the significance of line starting with #.

The typical system file with me is:

* vxfs_START -- do not remove the following lines:
* VxFS requires a stack size greater than the default 8K.
* The following value allows the kernel stack size to be
* increased to 24K.
set rpcmod:svc_default_stksize=0x6000
* vxfs_END
#set shmsys:shminfo_shmmax=4294967295
#set shmsys:shminfo_shmmin=1
#set shmsys:shminfo_shmmni=5000

Thanks,
Srilakshmi
