oracle 8.1.6 on A400: ORA-12547: TNS:lost contact

Hi,
I am trying to install Oracle 8.1.6 (Enterprise edition) on a A400 HPUX11 (64bits).
The installation went well but when I try to run svrmgrl I get the following error:
ORA-12547: TNS:lost contact.
Thanks & regards,
Tom

Hi there.
Check your kernel parameters. I attached a file containing kernel parameters for Oracle
8.1.7 .
Check memory parameters and the semaphores.
You can also download the Install and Upgrade Guide from Oracle Metalink or Technet.
Also get HP patch PHSS_22478.

It a little so scarce info for me but anyway:

Try set ORACLE_SID=

and run againg svrmgrl.

If you get any additional error please post it.

Hi,
First of all thanks for the advice. The 12547 was indeed caused by missing ORACLE_SID.
After setting the ORACLE_SID I got a ORA-03113 end-of-file on opening svrmgrl.
The patch PHSS_22478 was already installed and all kernel params seems to be OK.

Ah ORA-3113.... O.K. Try this:

1. which cc
2. If you don't get nothing from 1.) set PATH=$PATH:/usr/ccs/bin

So problem is maybe the absence of patch to linker in compiler.

3. If 2.) dosn't help relink Oracle kernel:
make -f ins_rdbms.mk ioracle
