AIX Agent11g patch => Bug Solved!!

Oracle has fixed the "below" bug and release a new Agent11g installation package for AIX on OTN. It is preferred to use this new package above the workaround below.

Regarding the Agent install error:

Checking Temp space: must be greater than 150 MB. Actual 541 MB Passed
Checking swap space: must be greater than 150 MB. Actual 4096 MB Passed
Preparing to launch Oracle Universal Installer from /tmp/OraInstall2010-12-02_02-01-58PM. Please wait ...xxxxx agent> Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: oracle.sysman.oii.oiix.OiixNetOps

Oracle support has supplied us with a workaround TAR file.
You can find it here:

The workaround steps are:

=== ODM Action Plan ===
1. Download the ouicore.tar file attached to the SR.
2. cp ouicore.tar
3. cd
4. tar -xvf ouicore.tar
5. ls -al aix/agent/stage/Components/oracle.swd.oui.core/
-> this should show 5 filegroup jar files and directory Expanded
6. Start the installation

Success !!!

OMSCA Fails during installation of Grid Control 11g on AIX

During the installation of Grid Control 11g on AIX 5.3TL10 we saw that during the configuration process the OMS Configuration Assistant (omsca) failed for an unknown reason.

I would like to bring THE solution to the attention of all you installers.
The installation can be found, thanks to Arjun Raja on his blog:

Please note that this solution is only valid for AIX systems
