Oracle 9.2.0 Error

I got Oracle 9.2.0 running on HPUX 11i. I got this error everytime I run RMAN. Anyone had or seen this problem before ?
RMAN-12001: could not open channel d1
RMAN-10008: could not create channel context
RMAN-10003: unable to connect to target database using connect string "XXXXXXX"
ORA-27102: out of memory
HP-UX Error: 12: Not enough space
Additional information: 103

Thanks !!

Re: Oracle 9.2.0 Error

All i can find is metalink

The second article indicates possible issues with memory. If there are a lot of database instances open and shared memory is short, that is an avenue of investigation.

I've also gotten that on a box that didn't have enough free swap space.

I'd consdier bumping up SHMMAX to a higher figure, not exceeding the 25% of memory figure at which HP-UX ignores the setting.

Since you are a fellow salad head, I'm making some assumptions.

Re: Oracle 9.2.0 Error


can you please confirm if this used to work before?

if this is something new, can you please post the rman commands you are using....

Better late than never ..

It turns out there is a memory leak with the intelligent agent (dbsnmp).

Thanks for all your time !
