I am trying to install oracle 10gAS(220.127.116.11.0) on Redhat Linux ES3.0 for form and report services but i am getting some problem. It ask for Oracle Internet Directory. For this should i install Server Infrastructure first then Application Server. If yes then what would be ORACLE HOME for Matadata Repository and Oracle AS if i install both on same machine and how will i corelate them? Is it possible to install it in existing Oracle Database 10g (18.104.22.168.0) and AS on seperate machine?
You must first install 10gAS infrastructure and the database is bundled into it in only one Oracle_home ( version 22.214.171.124)
It is officialy not supported to upgrade database version.
You can then have other 10gAS middle tier on the same host but on different ORACLE_HOME.
