ORA-27044 error message

Hi.

I have an hp 9000 server with hpux 10.20 and Oracle 8.0.6 installed.

I have a problem while creating tablespaces:

ORA-27044: write system call failed.
HP-UX Error: 5: I/O error.

Any suggestions.

Thanks,
Pedro.

Re: ORA-27044 error message

5 is EIO error. Obvious IO error.

This could be due to different reasons.

May be permissions on the filesystem/directories.

Or could mostly be due to the nolargefiles option on the file systems that could restrict the size of tablespaces to less than 2GB.

Make it to largefiles and see if it works.

Re: ORA-27044 error message

Hi Pedro,

Looks like a problem with the filesystem. It could be the one suggested by sridhar. Also can you do a fsck on the filesystem.

The error no means "An error occurred while reading from the file system."

Hope this helps.

Thanks

Re: ORA-27044 error message

Hi

I do agree with Sridhar on your problem.

And here is a little advise aside the problem:

Since you're working on a database with some size you'll certanly perform some big export / imports in the future. Be aware that Oracle 8.0.6 on HP-UX 10.20 needs a patch to create 2>GB export files.
Get the patch for Bug:1330994 from your Oracle Support.
