Hi,Recently I was doing the Oracle 11g installation in AIX 7.1 and faced a problem with Oracle installer not being able to start and perform installation.

The RUNINSTALLER errors are as below :

Has '' been run by root? [y/n] (n)y

Checking if group services should be configured....ODMDIR=/etc/objrepos, isHACMP=       0Nothing to configure.

I tried checking the permission in tmp folder and also for oracle folders but all seems fine.

Can someone provide resolution steps ?

Hi All,

Thanks for your help and suggestions.

The issue has been identified and it is related to oracle file systems mount point.

The Unix consultant unmounted the filesystems and found it was mounted with root user.

Later the same has been mounted with orauser and issue has been resolved.

The installation of Oracle successfully completed.

Thanks & Regards,
