Hi all,

I'm running Solaris 10 with the latest patch cluster and Oracle 10g RAc, on two solaris nodes with 1GB of RAM.
I tried to use dbca to create the database or the scripts but dbca just hangs due to I suppose some java bug, so I decided to do it manually.

I keep getting this error and have no idea how to create the database in exlusive mode, can anyone give me a hint ?

oracle@node0$ sqlplus / as sysdba
