Full Version: Impossible to install Oracle Grid Infrastructure
Oracle DBA Forums > Oracle > Oracle Forum
gianluca
Hi all,
I'm facing a trouble I can't solve anyway.
I'm trying to install Grid Infrastructure for Oracle RAC 11g.
I followed each step of preinstallation tasks, but when I run runInstaller it blocks without any error message.

What I see on my shell is this:
./runInstaller
Avvio di Oracle Universal Installer in corso...

Verifica dello spazio Temp: deve essere maggiore di 120 MB. Effettivi 17276 MB Superato
Verifica dello spazio di swap: deve essere maggiore di 150 MB. Effettivi 23999 MB Superato
Verifica del monitor: deve essere configurato per visualizzare almeno 256 colori. Effettivo 16777216 Superato
Preparazione per l'avvio di Oracle Universal Installer da /tmp/OraInstall2012-01-11_03-35-57AM. Attendere...[oracle@ssts2cora1 grid]$

Everithing seems ok. But the window of oracle installation does not appear. The java process is active:

but it does nothing!! Nothing appears to me.

Can anyone help me to solve this problem?
I attach the log file generated by the installation process.

Hi Gianluca,

>> Nothing appears to me.

You are supposed to go to the log files to see the error.

It may be in an OS log file.

This "hang" looks like you don't have enough RAM or you are truiong to install on a n on-certified OS or server.

1 - Double-check your pre-install requirements.

2 - Make sure thst the disk and server is a certified configuration.

It sounds like you have not read the pre-install and install documentation carefully . . .


*************************************************
>> Impossible to install Oracle Grid Infrastructure

No, it's possible, but it is veru hardware sensitive and it tskers an experienced expert with several years of Oracle.

It took me 3 weeks to ptoperly configure my forst RAC system, be patient!

The Oracle University RAC class is also highly recommended.

You have these choices:

1 - Get proper RAC training class from OU

2 - Rent a RAC expert (800-766-1884)

3 - Re and re-read the docs, especially yhe pre-install checklist.

4 - Call Oracle tech support (800) 223-1711, they can install RAXC for you.

Remember, 90% of the issues are about configuration.

Good Luck!

Make sure you installed gthe clusterware before installing RAC:

http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B19306_01/rac.10...759/install.htm

If your installer "hung" it is waiting for a reslource and you need to re-check the install prerequisites.

If the RAC installed crashed you need to find the appropriate trace or dump file for more details.

If your install screen does not display, check to ensure that X Wkindows is running:
