HP UX -ORACLE 10g INSTALLATION

Hi,
This is the first time I am installing Oracle 10g in HP UX 11i and I am getting some problems as,

1. Our server is HP 9000 series with 1 GB RAM and HP UX 11.11 with VXVM 3.5
2.During prerequisite check all steps succeeded except package requirement check shows status as not executed.
3. During daytabase creation time I am getting an error message as "Process PMON cannot start after 120 seconds" and I cannot proceed.
4.My bdump trace file give a message as 'File /dev/async'not present:error no=2

any help will be highly appreciated
Thanks in advance

Re: HP UX -ORACLE 10g INSTALLATION

hi,

first of all, you should have validated your environment. This is done by running the oracle Validate script which is available for download from metalink.

this script would have highlighted all the areas when your environment has not been properly tuned/configured..

as for the async problem, you may wish to follow the following instructions:

If the "/dev/async" device does not exists, then create it using the following instructions:

As the root user:
/sbin/mknod /dev/async c 101 0x0
/usr/bin/chown oracle:dba /dev/async
/usr/bin/chmod 000 /dev/async

The permissions on /dev/async of 000 ensure that it is not possible
to use the async driver unintentionally.

As the oracle user, modify the "init.ora" file so that the parameters:

disk_asynch_io = false
tape_asynch_io = false

hope this helps!

kind regards

Hi,

Thank you very much for your help. I tried it and "PMON" problem solved and during database creation I got the following error
ORA-13516:AWR Operation failed:CATPROC NOT VALID
ORA-06512:at"SYS.DBMS_SWRF_INTERNAL",LINE 191
ORA-06512:at"SYS.DBMS_SWRF_INTERNAL",LINE 224
ORA-06512:at LINE 1
and finally Enterprise Manager failed.
