    Oracle 19c installation fails in Oracle Database Configuration Assistant

    Alan Somoza

      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.
