    Oracle Explorer on Solaris 11 (SPARC)

    1012398
      Bit new to Solaris. Recently I am trying to install the Oracle Explorer on Fresh Solaris 11 (T4-1 SPARC) system, using the steps mentioned in http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11857_01/em.111/e21076/ch1_install.htm. But after installation. I am unable to locate the command. Am I using the right steps?? If not, plz refer correct one.

      And I am surprise to know that, it is not installed by default in new machine. But for support, explorer output is must. Looks like a scam :)

          It is not installed by default because this is only helpful and required if you are allowed to open service request.

          To run it, please start /usr/sbin/explorer

            Thanks Pascal. But it didn't work out. Not found /usr/sbin/explorer

              For information, Explorer is now up-to-date in Solaris IPS repository.

              Could you please try to remove Explorer packages (SUNWexplo, SUNWexplu, SUNWrda) and install the version from IPS repository ?

                  Which repositories are configured ? Are all reachable ?

                    Thanks Pascal.

                    I don't remember of setting a repository config during the setup time. Is it must?? Can I set it again? After setting, is it possible to stop the automatic download/upgrade of pkg & patches??

                      STB for S11 creates automatically a repository to allow the system to download all STB packages.
                      Check if this already exists and remove it if necessary if this one doesn't work.

                      Regarding the automatic download/upgrade, this process doesn't exists.

                        Thanks Pascal. Actually it is easy to install using PKG command. I complicated it . OK, For the benefit of others, here is the steps:

                         

                        1. # pkg publisher

                        2. Check publisher name (Ex: pkg.oracle.com) is resolvable

                        3. # pkg install explorer --> Take few mins to install

                        4. # /usr/sbin/explorer -g --> Create default conf file

                        5. # /usr/sbin/explorer --> Create & Send (optional) the explorer log file.
