Preinstallation Tasks

Preinstallation Tasks

Perform the following tasks before installing Oracle components.

Note: The ORACLE_HOME environment variable is automatically set in the registry. Setting this variable is not necessary or recommended and prevents multiple Oracle home environments from functioning properly.

To perform preinstallation tasks:

1.Read the appropriate online documentation described in "What Documentation Do I Read First?" on page 1-9 before you begin installation.

2.Review and satisfy applicable system and component requirements in Chapter 2, "Preinstallation Requirements" before you begin installation.

3.Start your operating system.

4.Log on as a member of the Administrators group to the computer on which to install Oracle components.

5.If applicable, install and test your network hardware and software.

6.Stop all Oracle services (if any are running) for the Oracle home into which you want to install Oracle components:

a.On Windows NT, choose Start > Settings > Control Panel > Services. On Windows 2000, choose Start > Programs > Administrative Tools > Services.

b.If any Oracle services (their names begin with Oracle) exist and have the status Started, select the service and choose Stop on Windows NT, or choose Action > Stop on Windows 2000.

c.Choose Close to exit the Services window.

7.Continue to "Installing Oracle Components" on page 4-4.
