i am going to install Oracle11gR2 installation on AIX 5.3 TL10 SP4
but i am unable to unzip file getting below error
# unzip aix.ppc64_11gR2_database_1of2.zip
End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not
a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the
latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
the last disk(s) of this archive.
unzip: cannot find zipfile directory in one of aix.ppc64_11gR2_database_1of2.zip or
aix.ppc64_11gR2_database_1of2.zip.zip, and cannot find aix.ppc64_11gR2_database_1of2.zip.ZIP, period.
You are downloading the file to either a directory that does not have enough disk space available, or one of the other directories on the server does not have enough disk space available. You must free up some disk space in order to open the file.
With every Oracle download and instructions I am gettting more and more annoyed!!!
On the official note Oracle RDBMS OTN Downloads: Files, Sizes and Directions [ID 209555.1]
this is what it says:
+*<Moderator Edit - deleted MOS Doc content - pl do NOT post such content - it is a violation of your Support agreement>*+
But where does it say I need to unzip it on the AIX box?
ALso I don't have "unzip" when AIX is shipped. The only version of "unzip" I have was the one I got from Oracle9, which I then copied to my Oracle10 installation.
In the past they used to give us .tar file, the most possible simplest of format easy to use. I would unzip the file in Windows, do a binary transfer - job done.
Was anyone thinking when preparing those files?
Why are the instructions on the Oracle note so vague?
At last, one needs to check the ulimit and add the fsize to the account in /etc/security/limits
Pl identify which exact version of 11gR2. If you are downloading 220.127.116.11 from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/enterprise-edition/downloads/112010-aixsoft-092688.html, the instructions are pretty clear. The same instructions apply to 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 as well.
As always, verify checksums of the downloaded files before attempting to unzip them
