Rep: Reputation: Disabled and root.Sh

Hi to all

I have some doubts regarding ,
  1. Script should be run as root user*
  2. which is located in $ORACLE_BASE
  3. Script creates the inventory pointer file (/etc/oraInst.loc),*
  4. Changing group name of the oraInventory directory to oinstall group i.e.
  5. changing the Permissions and groupname to 770 and to oinstall.

am i right ????

770 i having little much confusion with 770.

1.can anyone say from 0 to 7

2. scripts sets Environment variables

"copying of few files into /usr/local/bin , the files are dbhome,oraenv,coraenv etc."
3.May i know purpose of copying same files into /usr/local/bin from where and what for ??

Thanks and Regards

If you are installing oracle last I checked those were files that copied some pieces to other locations, and also set permissions and security on oracle related binaries. Unless you want to do all that by hand I would suggest using their canned scripts.

What he said ... ^

If you want to know what they do in detail, read them, they're just text files.
You could also actually ask Oracle.

If you want to know about permissions
