I'm trying all the possible way to install 11gR2 and create a RAC instance over ASM.
I've already installed GRID and everything is up and running, but when I try to install the actual database and configure an instance
the installation stucks on the Oracle Database Configuration Assistant and there is no way to may it continue, no errors, nothing in the dump dir nothing in the /tmp and its orainstallation logs.
I've also tried to quit the process and manually ran the DBCA utility, it continues up the the last stagebut when I click finish with the "create database" and create scripts I got 2 little scripts on the script dir with almost nothing in them and NO instance is never kicked off, nothing happens at all , the window stays there...
Has anyone gotten into this problem?
I got this problem trying to install Oracle 10g R2 in SLES-10 x86-64.
I was running "Xming" on my Windows XP, then I logged into the Linux server and ran dbca.
The problem happens in the last screen. Clicking on the Finish button nothing happens.
After many tries, I found that the problem was in the Xming software. Another "X" client, X-WinPro, fixed the problem.
1) you said Solaris x86; did you mean "x86-64"? (because there's no 11g software for Solaris 32-bit)
2) are you running dbca on the Solaris console, or exporting the dbca window to your desktop?
3) have you tried to trace the dbca process? (truss -p <pid>)
I don't think so. This because I have the feeling that there is not a big demand on the market. Modern servers are running anyway mainly on 64 bit architecture but maybe I am completely wrong.
OCP 9i / 10g
