Unable to create database [message #593883] Wed, 21 August 2013 10:44 Go to next message

I am installing Oracle 12c R1 on Windows 2012. The windows is configured as a domain controller. I am logged in as the domain administrator.
I created a normal domain user -- DomainName\ORACUSER. I provided this as the existing user id during Oracle installation.
The software installs fine, but when creating the DB using the database configuration assistant, an error is shown
"error in process:...\bin\oradim.exe. Enter password for Oracle service user: DIM-00019: create service error. O/S-Error: (OS 87) The parameter is incorrect". The DB is not created.
I skipped the db creation and completed the installation. When tried to create the db using the database configuration assistant after installation, I received the same error.
I performed the same installation on Windows 8 and was successful in creating the db.

All help is appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

I has the same problem once, DBCA doesn't always get it right. You need to create the Windows service manually, just run oradim from an OS prompt.
Probably best to let DBCA generate the scripts, check them over, and then run them one by one.

John,
What you are saying is to skip the db creation during installation and create it manually. Is this right?

I said, use DBCA to generate scripts, inspect them, and run them one by one.

John,

I generated the scripts using DBCA.

When I ran the following from command prompt

set ORACLE_SID=orcl

oradim -new -sid ORCL -startmode manual -spfile
Enter password for Oracle service user: <PASSWORD IS ENTERED>
DIM-00019: create service error
O/S-Error: (OS 87) The parameter is incorrect.

The service (OracleServiceORCL) is created when checked in the list of services.

So, service created: no problem. As you become more familiar with working with these incredibly complicated software products that consist of millions of miles of code, you will appreciate that things don't always run in exactly the way the developers expected. People who work with them want to have repeatable routines. If you get consistent behaviour, cool. Create and drop a few more databases, and see what happens in your environment.
