Try it and see. The other option is to reinstall the software.
Copying OraPrereqChecks.jar to ORACLE_HOME/inventory/prereqs/oui/ resolved the issue and I was able to create the data base.
There is a very serious issue that needs to be addressed by Oracle.
The file name OraPrereqChecks.jar is actually oraprereqchecks.jar on the install CD. This makes the installer give an error message during installation that it cannot copy OraPrereqChecks.jar and this is because the real file is oraprereqchecks.jar
This is not the only time I encountered the case mismatch (on file names or folder names) during Oracle installation on Solaris but several other occasions as well. For example:
There is directory that the installer looks for during installation /stage/Components/oracle.swd.jre/18.104.22.168.0/1/DataFiles/*.jar
But the real folder names is ../stage/components/oracle.swd.jre/1.4.2/1/datafiles/*.jar
Its a very lame mistake by such a large corporation like Oracle to be inconsistent with the folder names and file names!!!. Does any one, reading this article, know if Oracle is addressing this issue. Its a very major problem on Unix/Linux systems.
How can I report this to Oracle directly?
