At this point I checked the space on the hard drive by using the command:
#df -h /export/home/u01/app/oracleThe outcome was:
FILESYSTEM /dev/dsk/c0d0s7 SIZE 32G USED 1.4G AVAIL 30G Capacity 5% Mounted ON /export/homeBut here I see that I have enough space in the /export/home/u01/app/oracle directory, so I ignored the warning and pressed YES to proceed with the installation. After that point the installation went through fine, and I reached the window named SELECT DATABASE CONFIGURATION. In this window I selected the specific option and then pressed next, so the installation graph reached 87% (status was showing PROCESSING iSQLPLUS 10.1.0.3.0), and then afterwards it hung.
Please help me out in this situation.
Have you reviewed the installActions.log file? This should give you some idea of what the problem is. As well, you may see files in the same location with .err extension. These may also contain additional information about what the problem is. From doing a quick Google search, it seems that others have experienced this problem. One of the causes identified when getting this error has been a residual DNS entry, specifically a reverse entry for the server's IP address in the cache of the primary DNS server.
