When i connect the server machine through putty and want to use DBCA that time it gives me following error message
[oracle@unixmachine ~]$ dbca
-bash: dbca: command not found

So set the following paths
ORACLE_HOME=/home/oracle/oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1; export ORACLE_HOME

PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/bin:$PATH; export PATH

So it works for me.

But when i relogin through putty and tried to use DBCA it again shows the error message. So need to set above paths again.

Please tell me where i can set the above paths so that there is need to set those paths again and again.

Thanks,

hi
you need to set this variable in your oracle accounts '.profile' file, do you know how to do this?

from your /home/oracle directory type in

ls -a

this will give a list of the '.' files there should be a 'profile' file. edit this and add your required line.

you should also set ypour ORACLE_SID variable in this file.

regards

Alan

hi,
ok you need to look in the '.bash_profile'

I now see that you are using Linux.

you should have something similar too
ORACLE_BASE=/u01/app/oracle; export ORACLE_BASE
ORACLE_HOME=$ORACLE_BASE/product/10.2.0/db10g; export ORACLE_HOME
ORACLE_SID=emrep; export ORACLE_SID
OPATCH=$ORACLE_HOME/OPatch
ORACLE_TERM=xterm; export ORACLE_TERM
PATH=/usr/sbin:$PATH; export PATH
PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/bin:$PATH; export PATH
OMS_HOME=$ORACLE_BASE/product/10.2.0/oms10g; export OMS_HOME


this is taken from my system so you need to make sutable changes.

I also notice that you have installed you ORACLE_HOME under you oracle login path

i.e. /home/oracle/etc/etc

this is generally not best practice.


regards

Alan
