Message not found for Oracle 8.1.7 on HP-UX 11i

Hi,

I just installed Oracle 8i on my HP-UX 11i, and the installation looks successfully as I can see the process are there by 'ps -ef |grep ora'. But when I launched svrmgrl under /oracle/bin, Error message says as:
Message 4505 not found: No message file for product=SVRMGR, facility=MGR

Error while trying to retrieve text for error ORA-12545.

My questions are:
1. Why I don't have message file for server manager?
2. What does ORA-12545 mean?

Thanks in advance.
Keep finding is the way.

Hi there.
Here the message :

ORA-12545: Connect failed because target host or object does not exist
Cause: The address specified is not valid, or the program being connected to does not exist.

Action: Ensure the ADDRESS parameters have been entered correctly; the most likely incorrect parameter is the node name. Ensure that the executable for the server exists (perhaps "oracle" is missing.) If the protocol is TCP/IP, edit the TNSNAMES.ORA file to change the host name to a numeric IP address and try again.

Hi

Check that you have set the enviroment parameter ORACLE_HOME prior to running svrmgrl!

#export ORACLE_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/product/8.1.7
(set to your products installation dir)

or set this in your .profile

Hi

After fixing the $ORACLE_HOME don't forget to set $ORA_NLS33

#ORA_NLS33=$ORACLE_HOME/ocommon/nls/admin/data
#export ORA_NLS33
