Hi,

A good article.

I am facing an issue while installing PT8.50 on Linux 5 for Oracle database.

I start up the PT installation from Disk1 but when i provide path of Disk2, It gives following error:

Incorrect Media Volume..

I have tried many things. Setup are Ok, Using same setup i have installed PT on Windows Machine.

Is there any particular/different way to install PT8.50 on Linux 5?

Thanks for Help

Girish said...

I too facing the same issue of Insert media disk... Please help

Gasparotto Nicolas said...

Such error on media could come from the mount point where you have stored the installer on. Try to copy the diskX on local drive and run the installer.

Nicolas.
