      1. Can i install oracle 10g AS 32 bit on linux 64 bit ?

        • 1. Re: Oracle 10g AS on Linux
          I think my shop ran into the same thing. Correct me if I'm wrong but we could not find a 64 bit version of the Oracle software for this release.

          Once we gave up on this and rebuilt on a 32 bit OS the problems went away.

          The hardware is still 64bit, but we used 32bit Linux.

          When I test Fusion Middleware last week everything 64bit worked fine.

          Best Regards


          Q: Can I install Oracle 10g AS 32 bit on linux 64 bit.

          A: Maybe, but I was unable to. I was unable to see an advantage to putting 32 bit software on a 64 bit OS.

            It should be possible to install at least the SSO and OID components of OAS 10.1 on a 64 bits Linux system as long as you take the 10.1.4 version. According to the [url http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/ias/downloads/idm-certification-101401-083012.html]certification information, it is certified as long as you patch it to afterwards.

            Note that is a quit typical setup for FMW11g products which require SSO. If you want to use the latest OID version ( on x64, you will need a 64 bits OS. But you should still be able to install SSO on that box as well and wire it to your OID. Since 10.1.4 is still 32-bits, it should be supported with a 64-bits OS.

            Note that you could install your 'infrastructure' on two boxes with OiD residing on the 64-bits box while SSO runs on a 32 bits environment. But I just think that it would be an overkill unless you have strict topology requirements or overanxious network administrators.

              Thanks Eric;

              "overanxious network administrators", what are the odds? ;)

                This is the configuration i am using.

                I have installed R12.1.1 successfully and now i am trying to install 10gAS

                Let me know what can be done.

                  I have every detail on 32 bit, but nothing on 64 bit.

                    Hi James,

                    Note 317085.1 - OracleAS 10g (10.1.2) Installation Requirements for Linux Red Hat 4.0 / Oracle Enterprise Linux on My Oracle Support could be helpful.

                    Scroll down to the lower part of the note to see info about on 64 bits systems.
