Issue/Introduction

After installing Oracle, the DLP install halts after hitting "Next" on the "Base directory" and "Home_directory" confirmation screen, showing the following in a pop up window:

Sqlplus is not executable at /opt/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1/bin

Resolution

"Base directory" refers to the ORACLE_BASE directory and "Home directory" refers to the ORACLE_HOME.  The paths provided are defaults provided by the installer and may not reflect the ACTUAL paths.  For example, the error shows an $ORACLE_HOME/bin path of:

/opt/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1/bin

 

...when the actual $ORACLE_HOME/bin is ...

/opt/oracle/product/11.2.0.3/db_1/bin

 

Close the error window and use the "Browse" button next to the path to seek the appropriate path.  Then hit "Next" again, to see if your choice is successful.
