Will copying Oracle home directory install Oracle 9i on RH linux 9 system ?

P: n/a
Hello database professionals,

I am thankful for all ur support to me till now. I accept the
suggestion given to me by Mr.Frank in case of answering.
This query is related to oracle 9i on Red Hat Linux.
I have installed Oracle 9i Enterprise edition on a Red Hat Linux 9 pc.
I have created two small database and it is working well. I want to
install Oracle 9i on another system with Red Hat Linux 9. One of my
senior staff told me, to copy Oracle Home folder,
/etc/oratab,/etc/oraInst.loc.

I have copied as said. I created a user named oracle1 in dba
group[oracle is the name of user in my earlier system]. I have made
Oracle 9i installation changes in /etc/sysctl.conf and
/etc/security/limits.conf to make the kernel perfect for running
Oracle.i have also made the pathd definitions in ~/.bashrc also.

Now when i give
[oracle1@node3 oracle1]$ netmgr

The following error is shown.whatever i give like dbca or
oemappconsole i get same error.

X11 connection rejected because of wrong uthentication.
X connection to localhost:10.0 broken (explicit kill or server
shutdown).

1) Will copying oracle files install it on Linux? or Is it that i need
to install the full oracle by the Oracle universal installer ?

2) Will the two database i was using in the initial system , work in
my new system ? or do i need to create a new database for the
second/new pc ?

3) Should i need to do any further step to up the oracle software and
oracle database ?

pls do help me.. with ur ideas and suggestions..

regards,

As root: xhost +

The retry as oracle1
1) Will copying oracle files install it on Linux? or Is it that i need
to install the full oracle by the Oracle universal installer ? No - unless there are changes in versions of (parts of) linux, this
should work. Get all groups, group id's and users the same, and change
ownership
2) Will the two database i was using in the initial system , work in
my new system ? or do i need to create a new database for the
second/new pc ?
It will work - but I'd prefer a new one - it will get another internal
id (for one), and another service_name (which can be changed).
You do have the scripts - don't you? It should be matter of minutes.
3) Should i need to do any further step to up the oracle software and
oracle database ?

pls do help me.. with ur ideas and suggestions..

Cherrish,

When Oracle installs on unix, the files will be owned by a particular user:
in your case by oracle user on the original system. You copied those files
over to a new system where you expect a different user (oracle1) to be the
owner. You'd have to change the ownership for all the copied files from
oracle to oracle1. Hopefully it will work.

Cheers,
Valentin
