WebLogic Server 10.3.6 for Mac OSX

If you are trying to install WLS 10.3.6 in OS X Yosemite 10.10.5 then a couple error you may face:

1) Download generic installer; if you choose cocoa mac installer, then you'll get:

(or using system property: -Dos.name=unix  )
(or -Dos.name="OS X")
Exception in thread "chmodFile" java.lang.Error: unix is not a supported OS platform.

    at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:745)


2) If you receive the message "Insufficient disk space!" , although you know you have enough space, the use the following parameter:

 i.e.:

java -Dspace.detection=false -Xmx1024m -jar wls1036_generic.jar


(also, a small installer window could appear, and it is from the same reason).

Hi facing the first problem and tried solving it by the command -Dos.name=unix. But still the same error.

are you executing ?:

java -Dos.name=unix -Dspace.detection=false -Xmx1024m -jar wls1036_generic.jar

To resolve the issue, use

java -Dos.name="OS X" -Dspace.detection=false -jar wls1036_generic.jar

java -Dos.name="OS X" -Dspace.detection=false -jar wls1036_generic.jar

worked for me installing Oracle JDeveloper 11g (11.1.1.5.0)
