It looks like Oracle is broken and you'll need to contact them.
Your kctune(1m) values seem to meet the requirements.

>which OS file is read by applications to read the kernel parameters.

Applications aren't likely to read files, they would invoke kctune(1m) to get the info.

>why oracle is not able to read the values?

It's broken, talk to Oracle.
You could try tusc to see what it's doing.

Hi, We found the solution for this problem..... this was a permission problem .

Oracle didn't has the permission to read the /stand/current file.

Solution was to change the permission of /stand/current file to 755.

Hi,

If you are on PA-RISC:
http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B28359_01/install.111/b32325.pdf

If you are on Itanium:
http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B28359_01/install.111/b32329.pdf

The procedures for verifying the prerequisites in the installation of Oracle are not always updated. I suggest that you review these "warnings" and certifies:
1 .- Kernel's parameters obsolete for your HP-UX version,
2 .- Versions of patches installated in your system that supersedes at prerequistes patches.

After this certification, go ahead with the installation, ignore these "warnings".


You always have to go to "My Oracle Support" to resolve post-installation details:
https://support.oracle.com/CSP/ui/flash.html

Be prepared for mega-patch download up 7Gb to solve several performance critical issues on R1.

Rgds.
