Hi,

I am trying to install Oracle Database 11.2.0.4.0 on HP-UX 11.31. The installation progress is stopped during the database creation stage.

I have also tried to install in software only mode. Software install successful. but while running dbca, at last step, it do not start database creation. Also can't find any error.

Would anyone please help, what could be the possible reason for this problem.

I had installed all pre-requisite packages and didn't skipped any.

    Hi, Thanks everyone for your assistance. The problem solved. I guess the problem was from putty and xming side. This is what I have done.

    # Old putty and xming configuration

    I was using portable putty with xming - (Xming-6-9-0-31-setup.exe). I removed all and installed the following

    # New putty and xming configuration

    Xming-mesa-6-9-0-31-setup.exe

    Xming-fonts-7-7-0-10-setup.exe

    putty-64bit-0.73-installer.msi

    This solved my problem and database installation successful. Also didn't got any warning this time.

    Thanks.

    Looking where it is stopped, I'd guess that the net config assistant has popped up a window that is hidden behind the main dbca window.  I've seen that happen before. Just move your windows around and see what might be hiding behind them.

    That said, why are you installing 11.2?  It is now in sustaining support (effectively "end of life") and has been replaced by 12.1,  12.2, 18c, and 19c, successively.

    Also, while not intuitive or documented, most of us who have been around a while do NOT select to create a database as part of the software installation, as we have found a variety of problems that result when we do.  Just install the software, then come back and run dbca to create your database as a separate operation.

    Hi, Thanks for the reply. I have also tried to install software only mode. until database creation all successful. At the last step of dbca, where it should pop-up another window and start database installation, it don't. Please check the screen shots.

    1. Software Only Installation successful

    2. Listener creation successful

    3. DBCA up to last stage successful, but database creation do not start

    At this state when I click "ok" It should start database creation. But it don't and stuck as the next screen.

    For 11g: We are planning to upgrade both application and database. since this is our core system, we need some more time. For now I am preparing a test environment for application migration to a upgraded server.

    Thanks.

    Hi, There is a warning while running dbca. Don't know whether this is causing the problem. This warning also appeared during software installation and listener creation also.
