Oracle 11g Install On OpenVMS Itanium V8.4 fails with link error TCPIP$LIBRARY (Doc ID 2163098.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 20, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 11.2.0.4 to 11.2.0.4 [Release 11.2]
HP OpenVMS Itanium

Goal


When linking a new Client installation of 11.2.0.4 on HP OpenVMS Itanium 8.4
There appears to be a software install problem.

There is no error reported to the screen.
The GUI interface for the installer says the installation completed successfully, but the ora_root:[install]make.log file reports the link failed because the TCPIP$LIBRARY:[TMP] directory does not exist
