Re: About "end-file on communication channel"

I've seen this error before. I'd check and double check permissions on all directories and files specified in your init.ora, as well as the permissions of directories where you are trying to create any db files, redo logs, archive logs, ... Doesn't it sound like a communication channel has been established, but it immediately comes to EOF? I think during database creation it is caused by a filesystem permission problem.

Hi there. Check your kernel parameters, especially SHMMAX. That should be at least 1 GB. or larger. Then get the patch PHSS_22478
from HP to avoid more problems.
Here the params from a N4000 with two CPUs and 5 GB RAM :

semmnu 120 120
semume 10 10

shmem 1 1
