    How to unzip 20 gig OBIEE archive on Linux?

    user596857
      Dear Experts,

      On Redhat 6.4, I've installed Virtual Box.

      And, downloaded the OBIEE vm from here:
      http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/bi-foundation/obiee-samples-167534.html

      OBIEE 11.1.1.6.2 BP1 - Sample Application (V207)
      SampleApp V207 VirtualBox Image
      (turnkey virtual environment with full SampleApp preconfigured)


      The files are:

      ls -l

      The output from md5sum is what it should be.

      I gather that these multiple 2 gig files create one big 22 gig file.
      And that the information on all the files is actually found on the last file.

      I've tried multiple unzip commands to unzip them, to no avail.
      Notes below.

      What is the exact Linux command and syntax to unzip them?

      Thanks a lot.

          looks like your files are corrupted. Try to download the files again and then unzip then individually dont combine them and make it huge as unzip has limitation of <=4GB

          You have to use 7zip or gunzip or jar commands to unzip bigger files. But from the output which u have pasted it looks like files are corrupted not complete files. So you need to download it again

            Good call on the 4 gb limit.

            After doing the same process on Windows, I know they must all be unzipped
            together in one big group. Individuall unzips did not work.

            Using 7zip, gunzip or jar, what will the exact command and syntax
            be to unzip the 11 files unzip back into the one big 22 gb file?

            Thanks a lot.

              you can use the command as jar xvf filename.zip

              mark if it helps

                Try to unzip the file sampleappv207-ovf-zip-1719677.zip using Winzip in Windows
                All other files SampleAppv207GA_OBI_BP1.zip.00*N* are used automatically, you no need to unzip those.

                Once you done with unzip move them to where ever you want.

                mark if helps

                @RM; whats your email

                  Yes, after successfully unzipping on Windows before, I
                  knew that I could use Windows as a possible work around.

                  However. Windows is NTFS. Redhat does not work with it.
                  So, at least two 20 gig copies would be required.
                  To FAT32.
                  Then to ext4.
                  Each a different file system.

                  Check sum errors anyone?

                  The idea of contacting Oracle was to hopefully
                  get in contact with the people who originally
                  created the zip archive.

                  If they ran the commands to:
                  22 gig file -> 11 file archive of 2 gig files

                  You would think that they would also know how to:
                  11 file archive of 2 gig files -> 22 gig file

                  Is anyone in contact with them?
                  If so, what is the the correct answer?
