Error exec(2): could not load a.out in HP-UX 11.11

Dear all,

 

I got a problem while execute a script/program 

 

# ./tnsping
exec(2): could not load a.out

 

I tried to using:  #ulimit -s 131072

 

It's not worked. 

 

How could I fix this problem?

 

Many thanks in advance.

You need a better error message that tells you exactly what's wrong.

Where did you get tnsping?  Is it suppose to work on 11.11?

What do these show:

file tnsping

chatr tnsping

ldd tnsping

 

You may need to talk to Oracle about this and make sure you have the right version.

Hi,

It seems you are running tnsping without parameters and with the wrong credentials (root).  Try again, as RDBMS or APPS user (oracle or applmgr):

$tnsping <SID>

While that may be true, I'm not sure how those could cause that loader error.

Dennis,

I suppose the loader error is a permission issue of an Oracle executable being run by root...

Best Regards,

Eric

I would expect a more specific permission error.  It could be a not a PA-RISC executable?
