I am trying to install Oracle 9i on my Linux Red Hat Enterprise 3 Server (WS Edition). That is right, WS edition (not ES or AS). I don't know if any one of you has done this before ????
Anyway, I am running into host IP configuration issues. To get a better understanding of the problem I need to run the nslookup command. Problem is, that when I do this is what I get:
(Note nslookup is deprecated and may be removed from future releases consider using the 'dig' or 'host' programs instead. Run nslookup with the '-sil ent' option to prevent this message from appearing.)
I tried using the 'dig command, but I don't understand the output or how to use it. The dig gives me a parts a QUESTION, ANSWER and ADDITIONAL SECTIONS.
How can I use these commands to resolve my problem ?
Any ideas ?
4) host -l Linux2005
;; Connection to 188.8.131.52#53(184.108.40.206) for Linux2005 failed: connection refused.
host -v Linux2005
Host Linux2005 not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)
Received 102 bytes from 220.127.116.11#53 in 187 ms
PS: I am getting error messages such as 'Thrown when the IP address of a host cannot be determined' Pop-Up error messages. How can I go about to resolve this issue ?
im not familiar to oracle. i just know about networking a little
do u have localhost entry in hosts file?
maybe it tres to resolve localhost through nameserver. u can try to run named (bind). named has localhost entries by the default. and change /etc/resolv.conf to use your local nameserver.
