    SUNWi1cs, SUNWi15cs are missing in oracle solaris for VM

    user10858330
      Hello,
      i'm installing oracle 10r2 on Solaris10_8-11 for testing purposes. i have download Solaris from VM section of oracle
      http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/server-storage/solaris10/solaris-vm-405695.html.
      Two package are missing both are required for oracle installation. i got following error
      ERROR: information for "SUNWi1cs" was not found
      ERROR: information for "SUNWi15cs" was not found

      when i google this issue i got a OTN thread which deal almost same problem and purposed solution was to download cd1 which contain both pkgs. Now my questions are

      would i need to download compete dvd for just two pkgs? (SIZE 3GB)
      is there any link to download CD1 only
      or any other work around?

          Hi

          These is the required pkgs and you can found only from the iso of operating system

          please share the details of pkgs that will mandatory for oracle to the administrator while they people perform the installation so that you might not be the more issue for found from iso

          Regards

            thanks for reply,
            i'm confuse why oracle did not add theses pkg in vm solution. The purpose of this VM machine to make life easy for those guys who don't have sound experience on solaris box (like me) or they have no concern with OS installations. it mean, if i wanted to install oracle on solaris using VM machine then i have to download both file separately which is equal to 7GB (too large) plz let me know if there is any way to downlaod cd1 instead of full dvd?

              Please check below note and be sure you have all prereq on your system(You can have higher version of packages)

                Thanks, but i'm not asking the prereq i know all what is mention in the note. my question is different. i'm talking about the Oracle Solaris VMS which come with pre-configure Solaris os. Now if pkgs are missing in them then what we need to do? would i need to download full DVD of Solaris and add package ? i did not get any single link on net which install oracle on Solaris VM. i think i have to download full DVD to resolve this issue. VM OS does not have req packages. i think Oracle should ship both package with VMs software so that we don't have to download both ISO image and Solaris10_8-11-disk1.vmdk.

                  Yes, you would need to download the Solaris 10 media and install the needed packages into the VM.

                  You might want to consider Solaris 11 instead. The new packaging system means you can directly install required packages from Oracle's network repository without need of downloading the entire released set of packages.
