I successfully built an Oracle 9i RAC using raw devices, but in the very last step of creating the RAC database, at the very end when i click the Finish button, i get the following error:
PRKC-1007: problem in creating directories on the nodes
I've researched this error message both on Metalink & several other Oracle forums, but none of the suggested possible solutions helped.
When i check my cluster version, i get the following errors:
(oracle@cteora1) /home/oracle > srvconfig -version
Exception in thread "main" (oracle@cteora1) /home/oracle >
PRKC-1007 "Problem in creating directories on the nodes"
Cause: Attempted directory create operation(s) from the local node to one or
more nodes in the cluster and one or multiple of those directory create
operations failed. This can occur either because one or more nodes failed during
the operation or the destination directory did not have write permission for the
user on one or more of the nodes or the source file did not exist or on UNIX
platforms ’rcp’ command to one or more nodes failed.
Action: See earlier error messages for details.
I got ur solution online, but it still didn't help. The oracle user has write permissions, & user equivalence is properly established on both nodes. Also, ssh & scp do work perfectly on both cluster nodes.
I restarted gsd, but still wasn't capable of running dbca successfully, so i used dbca to generate db creation scripts & manually ran these scripts to create the 9i RAC database. All is working perfectly fine as @ now...
