I'm trying to install Oracle 8i on Sun Solaris 7.
The installation completes without any problem if I choose to create the database later. When I try to create a database manually/Database configuration assistant it leads to error.
When tried with Database config. assistant error ORACLE NOT AVAILABLE is reported. When tried to create the same with script says
ORA-27102 Out of memory.
SVR4 Error 22: Invalid/argument
Initially the thought it is due to insufficient SWAP SPACE and increased it. The system has 128MB RAM and 512MB SWAP SPACE which as per the installation guide is sufficient. I also tried to reduce the db_block_size and db_block_buffers to bare minimum.
Looking forward for all of your valuable suggestions to work around.
Thanks in advance.
Did you run root.sh script after the installation? Seems you have Unix memory problems. Check on the metalink any issues with Solaris version 7.
Please post /etc/system file here?
This is what I have on one of my machines inside the /etc/system file for oracle :
* Begin Oracle requirements
* End Oracle requirements
Please also note that if the value for java_pool_size is less than 1MB your instance
would not start (8.1.5 bug).
