Hi All,

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:

oracle.ops.mgmt.cluster.ClusterException:
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
java.lang.NullPointerException
at java.text.MessageFormat.format(MessageFormat.java)
at java.text.MessageFormat.format(MessageFormat.java)

at oracle.ops.mgmt.rawdevice.RawDeviceUtil.main(RawDeviceUtil.java:2320)
Exception in thread "main" (oracle@cteora1) /home/oracle >

Can anyone please help me with this issue?

You may be missing some simple privs.
Look into alert log (if any) from the node you invoked DBCA.
From the OS, see if you can create some directories /files in remote node. If RSH/RCP is properly set, there should be no issues.
Make sure Oracle user has read/write access to ORACLE_HOME/ORACLE_BASE directories in all nodes.

Hey Mahesh, i think the issue was not enough SWAP b/c i increased my swap space from 8G to 20G (20G RAM) & was ablte to by-pass this error.

Thanks all the same for your input...
