Environment

Novell Access Governance Suite 4.2.2

Situation

Installation of Access Governance Suite fails with these errors:

Installing Oracle...
sed: can't read /opt/oracle/product/11gR1/db/css/admin/init.cssd: No such file or directory
sed: can't read /opt/oracle/product/11gR1/db/bin/localconfig: No such file or directory
./installOracle.sh: line 85: /opt/oracle/product/11gR1/db/root.sh: No such file or directory
Failure on Oracle root.sh

Resolution

The SLES 11 SP1 server was installed with the "Oracle Pattern" within Yast | Software Installation.  The Oracle Pattern installs the "orarun" rpm that includes script files that sets the ORACLE_HOME environment variable.  The Access Governance install seems to use the invalid ORACLE_HOME variable instead of being allowed to correctly insert the valid ORACLE_HOME variable it needs for proper installation.

Resolution is to remove the orarun rpm package from the system.  This should clear the ORACLE_HOME variable on reboot.

Steps to clean up the partial install: 

1)  cd /tmp/aveksa/staging/deploy
2)  ./uninstall.sh

It is then safe to try the install again.
