Hi,

I have tried to install the Oracle DB 11g R2. (I have chosen Enterprise Edition)

I am installing on Win2K3 SP2 32 bit

While the installation is progressing with Disk 1of2 I got many "File not found errors" (Sample screen shot & list of missing files attached)

I have continued the installation anyway.

I just want to know from Oracle experts that  whether its fine irrespective of these errors or I need to try reinstalling

Reply ASAP is appreciated

Thanks,
Rishi

how many bytes is the zip files?

I'm wondering if you got the whole zipfile downloaded/transfered correctly.

You should not run the system with missing files, so yes a reinstall are required.

Hi Rindbaek,

I have downloaded the following files couple of times from Oracle DB Download site and tried to install.


1) win32_11gR2_database_1of2.zip (1.51GB)
2) win32_11gR2_database_2of2.zip (602.7 MB)

 I extracted both the zip files into the single folder as Bawer suggested. But it didn't work.

Alternatively I have downloaded V20605-01_1of2.zip (1.51GB) from E-Delivery site which is equivalent to Disk 1 above and tried which also didn't work.

Thanks
Rishi

This is from the oracle website itself.

        Directions
                1. All files are in the .zip format. There is an unzip utility here if you need one.
                2. Download and unzip both files to the same directory.

But as Rindbaek as indicated, it might be better to re-install.

Since you've already tried unzipping in the same place but failed, you can probably unzip the second ZIP file to a different location and then manually merge it with the folders created by ZIP file 1. Because, it can be possible that the UNZIP utility you are using is not 'Merging' with existing directories, instead is 'Replacing' which can be one of the issue.

As far as understand, this is a problem while the second ZIP file is uncompressed. So just make sure your 'database' directory also contains all the files from the second ZIP file.

incase of any issue with unzip, better use winrar

I have solved this issue by copying the war and ear files reported by the installer into a " components" directory of the Installable and re-ran the installer.

Thanks,

I was makig same error.  When I read instructions, I interpreted incorrectly.  When unzipping to same dir, I thought that the two unzipped dirs should have been at same level.  For example, c:\download\zip_1_of_2 and c:\download\zip_2_of_2.

It is easy enough to unzip both files to common dir.  You will be asked to "merge".  Click "yes" and voila.

Great read.  I was losing my mind thinking Oracle was putting crap out.  I usually work on UNIX.
