    Hi Jim, please help me for my post ORA-27040

    Hi Jim,
    Please look into my post ORA-27040, I'm in very very critical position. I'm getting that error continuosly. I tried with all the directories i had in my box, and with all the permissions 777 also i tried, but couldn't get. All the time,its saying the same error:

    ERROR at line 1:
    ORA-01501: CREATE DATABASE failed
    ORA-00301: error in adding log file 'u09/oradata/cmsdev/redo1a.log' - file
    cannot be created
    ORA-27040: skgfrcre: create error, unable to create file
    Linux Error: 2: No such file or directory

    Please help me...

    There was a softlink for my init.ora to another directory /u01/app/oracle/oradata/cmsdev/pfile from $ORACLE_HOME/dbs. I took a backup of the init.ora file and removed those two files from both the directories and copied back into $ORACLE_HOME/dbs . By this way, will the softlink will be removed or still it exists. Metalink says, this error usually comes when there is any soft link exists for a file . But i recreated it ,(using the same old file only).

    Please help me

    Maybe the logfiles already exist. Check if they do, then remove them and try to recreate the database.

    The error message is so clear man.

    Missing the / in the begining. You original statement is 'u09/oradata/cmsdev/redo1a.log' and change to '/u09/oradata/cmsdev/redo1a.log' to resolve the problem.
