Re: oracle 9i on hp-ux 11i

Looks like your display variable is not set correctly or clients are not allowed to access your display.

Set the DISPLAY variable to your workstations ip address with a :0 at the end for example

export DISPLAY=

Also, it might be worth running "xhost +" on your X server if it isn't a PC running Reflections or Exceed or something.
Never preceed any demonstration with anything more predictive than "watch this"

Re: oracle 9i on hp-ux 11i

On the root prompt of the server just do a

#xhost +
to enable clients connecting this server.

On the other window if you have logged in as oracle

export DISPLAY

Just do a
to check whether you get the display


Re: oracle 9i on hp-ux 11i

to my knowledge this is due to DISPALY problem.
If you use a another unix X system then you need to set your server's(oracle) DISPLAY=:0.0

after that then run xhost +

This should help you.

Please verify that the server's X system is up.

To get out of a difficulty, one usually must go through it
