Re: create database error


I have a feeling that you are better of by asking this question more directed towards oracle. It doesn't look like a HP-UX error message to me.
Sorry for not having the "magic answer".

Re: create database error

Hi there.
Here the message from Oracle :

ORA-01990: error opening password file name
Cause: An attempt to open the specified password file failed because of one of the following errors:

An operating system error occurred.
ORAPWD is already running, so the password file is locked.
The environment variables ORA_sid_PWFILE and ORA_PWFILE are not set.

Action: Check for the above causes and correct as necessary.

Hope it helps
