Met INS-08101 when I installed Oracle database 19c on Oracle Linux 8 update 2.
[INS-08101] Unexpected error while executing the action at state: 'supportedOSCheck'
INS-08101 means that there's no CV_ASSUME_DISTID, an environmental variable set by the verification program, which is an unexpected situation. We should set one for it.
To solve this error 'supportedOSCheck', we can set environment variable CV_ASSUME_DISTID, either temporarily or permanently.
At runtime, we can export the variable.
[oracle@ora19c dbhome_1]$ export CV_ASSUME_DISTID=OEL8.1
I found that any distribution id is acceptable as long as it's valid.
Or we can uncomment the line containing the variable in the CVU configuration file. It's around line 20.
[oracle@ora19c dbhome_1]$ vi $ORACLE_HOME/cv/admin/cvu_config
Just remove the leading # (pound sign) from the line like this:
The fallback value can also work.
I recommend the latter solution, the permanent way to solve INS-08101, because you also need the variable to patch the software afterwards.

just uncomment ‘CV_ASSUME_DISTID’ from this file $YOUR_ORACLE_HOME/cv/admin/cvu_config through editor
Thanks for your input.
-just execute this command $ vi /u01/app/oracle/product/19.3.0/dbhome_1/cv/admin/cvu_config
-or go through the file explorer and open the file then
and delete th ‘#’ sign in the ligne
and save the file
Good! As long as the value is valid.
will it get stuck later if I am using rhel 8.4 will it matter that i tell it its OEL8.1
I think any minor releases in OEL 8 are also able to run Oracle 19c. If there’s any stuck, you should check installation log first.
Thank you so much.
it works for me.
I’m glad the solution is helpful.
thank you dude
Awesome with temporary settings ….worked. saved a lot of time.
I’m glad the solution does work.
