    Database installation

    Hello all,

    Please bear with my very basic questions.

    I installed Oracle 8i on Solaris 7.0. After installation is done, I went $ORACLE_HOME/bin directory and typed 'sqlplus'.

    I got the following message: sqlplus: fatal: open failed: No such file or directory Killed

    I am getting similar message if I type 'svrmgrl'

    What should I do to run these programs?

    Also, after installation is completed, how can I start instance in NOMOUNT stage? (should type svrmgrl? if so, where should I type it?)

    Thanks a lot for your response.

    Was your installation successful. Follow the installation guide to complete it. I am guessing your in a situation where you may have to recompile Oracle Binaries.

    You can start the database in nomount mode from SQL+ or svrmgrl. In 8i, SQL+ works for server manager.

    have you defined enviroment variables at all? sqlplus: fatal: open failed

    seems to me you have not defined LD_LIBRARY_PATH

    It will probably be unlinked executables. You can run SQL*Plus without LD_LIBRARY_PATH being set.

    oracle@stecal:{15} env | grep LD_LIB
    oracle@stecal:{16} sqlplus system/manager@devel40

    Check whether you have set up all the env variables like ORACLE_HOME, ORACLE_SID, LD_LIBRARY_PATH, TNS_ADMIN etc
