Verifying Host Names


Use the following to verify host name settings:

For Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS/ES 4 and 5:
1. Verify that the /etc/hosts file is formatted as follows:
2. 127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
3. <ip_address> <node_name>.<domain_name> <node_name>
4.
5. Verify that the /etc/sysconfig/network file is formatted as follows:
HOSTNAME=<node_name>.<domain_name>If the
/etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/network file exists, remove it.
7. If you changed any files in the previous steps, restart the system.

Modifying the Number of Open File Descriptors

Open the /etc/security/limits.conf file and change the existing values for “hard” and “soft” parameters as follows. Restart the system after making changes.
* hard nofile 65535
* soft nofile 4096
* hard nproc 16384
* soft nproc 2047

    During my RHEL 5 install of R12.1.1 I hit a couple of other issues that should be covered in the pre-reqs.

    1)error while loading shared libraries: libdb.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    To Fix…

    ls -l /usr/lib/libdb.so.2
    ls: /usr/lib/libdb.so.2: No such file or directory

    ln -s /usr/lib/libgdbm.so.2.0.0 /usr/lib/libdb.so.2

    ls -l /usr/lib/libgdbm.so.2.0.0
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 23812 Jun 5 2007 /usr/lib/libgdbm.so.2.0.0

    2) POST INSTALL STEP .If using shared APPL_TOPS change s_lock_pid_dir variable in XML context file to point to a local directory with write read and permissions instead of a nfs directory.

    As root

    mkdir -p /u01/oracle/apps_lock_pid
    chown applmgr:dba /u01/oracle/apps_lock_pid

    As applmgr

    vi $CONTEXT_FILE

    /u01/apps/VIS/inst/apps/VIS_g2svobsdb01/pids/10.1.3/Apache/logs
    becomes
    /u01/oracle/apps_lock_pid

    2. Run AutoConfig.

    $ADMIN_SCRIPTS_HOME/adautocfg.sh

    3. Restart all the services cleanly.

    $ADMIN_SCRIPTS_HOME/adstpall.sh apps/apps
    $ADMIN_SCRIPTS_HOME/adstrtal.sh apps/apps

    4. Check both oacore and HTTP_Server services are up and retest the issue

    ls -l /u01/apps/VIS/inst/apps/VIS_g2svobsdb01/portal/OA_HTML/AppsLogin

      HI Raj,

      Good to hear from you. Sorry as I was busy with production so didnt had time to reply.
      Well for installation the hardware that you mentioned are fine for installation of 12.1.1
      I have given pre-req in my previous post you can refer to that and you can refer to
      oracle document id:402310.1 for more information.

      You must start the installation from root and make sure that domain name and hostname is set in /etc/hosts and must have
      OS user like “oracle” assign to group “dba”
      #groupadd dba
      #useradd -g dba -d /home/oracle oracle

      Run Rapid install from root

      In case of any doubts you can contact me via email

      Syed

      Hi Raj,

      Can you explain me the error in detail as when, how and what you have done. In short
      can you reproduce the error from begining.

      Since the above error could occur due to many reason: like during cloning, refresh etc.

      Regards
      Syed

    Raj,
    was this on a 64 bit Redhat or 32 bit Redhat. i am planning to install 64 bit version and wanted to make sure if rpms are the same
    -chid

    • appsinfo said

      Hi Raj,

      It was on 64 Bit RHEL. Yes RPMS are almost the same as that of 32 bit. However re-check once on Metalink for Installation Notes.

      Regards,
      Syed
