Hello,

I am trying to reinstall Oracle 9i iAS (infrastructure and then Application Server).
I removed the directory from the server and deinstalled the product from OUI.

I still get a messge :

Install has detected an invalid Active EMD Home configured as
/u01/app/oracle_linux/product_iAS. Possible
cause for this erro may be a previous installation of Oracle 9iAS that was not
completely installed or deiinstalled. Please perform a deinstall on the home.

What should I do about this error messge that does not go away ?

ok, here is the solution:


every time you have installed Oracle product, it created a folder called OraInventory folder:

the lcoation of this folder will vary depending upon your configuration and your system enviromentabl setting..

but to find this folder location:


log in as ROOT in your system:


$ find / -name "OraInventory"


or

$find / -name "oraInventory"


then delete this folder. reboot the machine, you should be fine.

HEllo,

I removed oraInventory. Note that I have 2 instances of Oracle Database installed.
Then I rebooted, launching OUI, it told me I had no Oracle Products INstalled.

Then when trying to start Oracle 9i iAS Infrastrucutre, the same message again:

Install has detected an invalid Active EMD Home configured as
/u01/app/oracle_linux/product_iAS. Possible
cause for this erro may be a previous installation of Oracle 9iAS that was not
completely installed or deiinstalled. Please perform a deinstall on the home.

What should I do about this error messge that does not go away ?
