Hi,

I have a fresh server with no databases. The processes is to create database using a custom script cr_db, this invokes dbca saliently.

While creating a new database i faced the below error: -

Cleaning up failed steps
DBCA_PROGRESS : 4%
Creating and starting Oracle instance
DBCA_PROGRESS : 6%
DBCA_PROGRESS : 7%
DBCA_PROGRESS : 8%
ORA-01501: CREATE DATABASE failed
ORA-01101: database being created currently mounted by some other instance

ORA-01501: CREATE DATABASE failed
ORA-01101: database being created currently mounted by some other instance

DBCA_PROGRESS : 100%


There are no databases in the server : -

[oracle@lxx0019:/prd/dvp/ora/app/oracle/admin/LDD/diag/rdbms/ldd/LDD/trace]# ps -ef | grep pmon
oracle   27784 10729  0 10:52 pts/3    00:00:00 grep pmon


Please let me know what could be the issue?

Thank You

Hi,

The issue got resolved.

Solution was to cleaup the directory $ORACLE_HOME/dbs, after that the script was restarted and it worked.

Thank you
