Stupid "root.sh" Crash when Installing GI 188.8.131.52 Apr 2016
Funny thing happen today. I was asked to install a 184.108.40.206 RAC database. The hardware and the OS prerequisites were, in their vast majority, previously addressed, so everything was ready for the installation. Of course, as you already know, Oracle is quite picky about the expected environment (and for a good reason) and it checks a lot of things before starting the actual installation. Of course, sometimes it does this horribly. For example, take a look at the following screenshot:
Apparently this is due to unpublished
Bug 19031737 and can be ignored if the
setting is correctly set in the OS.
Everything went smooth until I ran the
root.sh script. I ended up with:

Stupid! Our sysadmin set a global
http_proxy variable which confused
and, by extension, the
Wouldn’t be a good idea
cluvfy to check also if this variable is correctly set
Until then, I put this as a note to myself: don’t forget to always unset
http_proxy variable before starting to install a new Oracle server.
