    Hi,
    If you are trying to create database manually...
    check $PATH is set properly in profile file.
    and ensure init.ora is in correct location if not link to the location.
    you can also check /usr/sbin/prtconf file is set to 555 permission.
    Thanks.

    1. check ALRET.LOG file for discovering ur error.
    (it place .../bdump/alertSID.log

    2. in most cases it happen if u didn't setup Solaris kerner parameters in /etc/system file
    check it, and compare with recomended values:
    http://docs.oracle.com/database_mp_8i.html
    (Oracle8i Release Notes, Release 3 (8.1.7) for Sun SPARC Solaris)

    well Shestakov,
    Please correct me if I am wrong.
    I was thinking kernel parameters required at the time of starting the database to allot the semaphores stuff like that.
    (Ofcousre I generally follow while creating the database the following steps...
    1.add kernel parameters..
    2.reboot server
    3.chmod 555 to prtconf
    4.install oraclke software
    5.edit profile .cshrc for the path
    6.create database..so did not come across)
    please advice.
    Thanks.
    Thanigaivasan.

    Oracle installer don't use kernel parameters a lot, this is usual JVM application.
    The kernel parameters use only when
    ORACLE INSTANCE STARTED and
    Oracle begin to use latchs, enqueue and so on ... (access to common resources and shared memory)

    First command in database creation process (doesn't matter this is manual installation
    or with using database assistent)

    create database ...

    this command MUST execute sql.bsq script.
    and we ussualy get problems with unix kernel parameters.
