Oracle 19c installation fails in Oracle Database Configuration Assistant

Hi,

I'm facing an annoying problem. I have to install the 19c on a machine that can't write into /tmp folder, so it gives an error.

At the first part of the installation, it seemed that the problem was solved when you set up the environment variables as shown in:

https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E65398_03/otn/pdf/install/html_edmsv/output/chapter_6.htm

So, I set up TMP,TEMP,TMPDIR,TEMPDIR to a directory I control and where I have full privileges. After this, first error in the installation was wiped out, but when I reached step 16, Oracle Database Configuration, an error screen popped up.

This new window states:

INS-20802 Oracle Database Configuration Assistant failed.

Cause - The plug-in failed in its perform method

Action - refers to the logs or contact Oracle Support Services.

Checked out the log indicated in the screen with no luck.

After a while, I found a trace log at target folder that says both "unable to setup CVU remote execution framework directory", and it targets again the "/tmp/CVU_19.0.0.0.0" directory when I changed the temporary folders previously.

Also states that cant check available memory afterwards, but as it seems to be trying to reach an unreacheable directory, the crash sounds legit.

So, can you please tell me what is the correct way to tell Oracle to forget about /tmp folder and use a /whatever folder instead?

Sorry about not providing screenshots, my pro environment is restricted and I have no permissions to make them.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    you need to provide more details..

    what steps did you follow as pre-requisites.

    check the log file in inventory directory for more info

    also, check if TMP directory has enough space.

    Hi,

    First of all, thanks for your quick answer @MKJ10930279.

    As I stated as prerrequisite of my system I can't write at /tmp. I'm working at a secure system, and this folder is not available as it is a security issue.

    For the same reason, I can't also copy and paste full logfiles or screenshots beyond 'I'm manually typing this error'

    What seems I need is to change /tmp file in order to prevent CVU writing/Reading from it during step 16 of the installation.

    Prerrequisites, Suse 12SP3, added required packages as specified:

    bc
    binutils
    glibc
    glibc-devel
    libX11
    libXau6
    libXtst6
    libcap-ng-utils
    libcap-ng0
    libcap-progs
    libcap1
    libcap2
    libelf-devel
    libgcc_s1
    libjpeg-turbo
    libjpeg62
    libjpeg62-turbo
    libpcap1
    libpcre1
    libpcre16-0
    libpng16-16
    libstdc++6
    libtiff5
    libaio-devel
    libaio1
    libXrender1
    make
    mksh
    net-tools (for Oracle RAC and Oracle Clusterware)
    nfs-kernel-server ( for Oracle ACFS)
    pixz
    rdma-core
    rdma-core-devel
    smartmontools
    sysstat
    xorg-x11-libs
    xz

    User with full privileges: oracle - orainstall. Path /u01/app/oracle.

    Inventory file does not provide more intersting information beyond 'Unable to read the list of homes from the inventory' labeled as warning. Altered path seems to be correctly set there.

    I know where my problem is: /tmp is not available. The problem is that CVU seems to be ignoring the bypass of manually sitting TMP,TEMP,TMPDIR,TEMPDIR.

    What kind of information would I need to post? Kinda newbie looking for help, sorry.

    Is even posible to change CVU's default /tmp folder to anywhere else?

    Thanks in advance

    Above are not the installation instructions for Oracle database 19c under Suse Linux.

    Instead, I suggest to follow:

    https://docs.oracle.com/en/database/oracle/oracle-database/19/ladbi/index.html

    ... and to check the following in particular:

    https://docs.oracle.com/en/database/oracle/oracle-database/19/ladbi/procedure-for-configuring-oracle-software-owner-envi…

    It's possible that your OS is not setup correctly. Permissions of /tmp could be wrong, and for example not use SUID.

    What is the output of "ls -ld /tmp" ?

    If you need to use a different directory you can try the following, for example:

    su - oracle

    mkdir tmp

    export TMP=$HOME/tmp

    export TMPDIR=$HOME/tmp
