Oracle 8.1.6 Database connectivity error

I receive a "9777 Memory Fault" error on my HP-UX 10.2 server every time I try to connect to an Oracle 8.1.6 database. I have no problem connecting to all previous versions of Oracle including versions 8.05 and 7.3.4.

Is there an HP-UX patch that will solve this problem?

Re: Oracle 8.1.6 Database connectivity error

Hello Paul,

have you checked wether you are able to "reach" the
server's listener? Test it with something like
tnsping LISTENER
where "LISTENER" is the name of the paragraph
describing your Oracle8i instance.
If it is working (output ends with "OK") you should
try to connect with "sqlplus" like
sqlplus system/manager@LISTENER
and replace "LISTENER" with the same name you used
in the first test.
