Hi friends and especially Michael,
I am a bit puzzled.
I installed oracle 7 on SCO UNIX 5.0.5
In the last few seconds of the installation , ifound some errors that
/home/oracle7/orainst/wgstart.sh :/home/oracle7: can't execute
/home/oracle7/orainst/wgpostins.sh :/home/oracle7: can't execute

Though no errors came during the entire installation except the above ones , but when i try to dbstart the database,it shows errors

ora-00205: error in identifying control file 'ora_control1'
ora-07360: sfifi : stat error, unable to obtain information about file
AT&T System V/386 Error : 2 : No such file or directory

How could such error be come?
And i dont find any file in dbs ditrectory other than init.ora file

Does it mean the installer did not create any database during installation?
Does wgpostins.sh script create controlfiles and other files?
Do i have to manually create the database and control file??

I know i a mworking on very old systems.

Can anybody put some light on it?

Thanks

Thanks Michel for the quick response.
Can you check the steps to create the database

1)Startup nomount
2)Create database script same as in all the versions?
3) Post database creation steps??

Thanks

I meant init<SID>.ora not the sample one.
No other file in Oracle7 (as far I remember) but of course directories in which you want to put your files.

Michel

Verify that your user has read/write accesses on directories.
Generally, there is an OS error message associated, which one it is?
Drop the current files and retry.

I killed all the processes of oracle.(ps -ef grep | oracle)
But the problem persisted.
Then issues ipcs -m to see the shared memory segments and removed the oracle segments .
ipcrm -m ID.
After restaring the machine when i did dbstart, new errors came.
Ora-12162: TNS: service name is incorrectly specified
SVRMGR> LCC-00161 : ORACLE error(possible syntax error) parameter [NULL]

I checked in the network/admin directory, the listener and other related files are of the extension v1.

i dont see any listener.ora file.

Thanks

Internal stuff, just to let Oracle knows there was an instance and something like that. Useful only in old versions.

I'm not there to see what you wrote.
I don't which file it is trying to get.
Are you sure your user has all privileges on Oracle directories?
Check if you have sql.bsq file somewhere in $ORACLE_HOME (I don't remember where it should be located in your version).
Check alert.log.

Regards
Michel

i issued the above create database command.

Yes i have sql.bsq file in the dbs directory.
As user root i gave 777 permission to /home/oracle7.

What about subdirectories and files?
By the way, 777 is not a good thing, just the owner which MUST NOT be root.
Don't use root to install Oracle or create a database.

The owner of dbs directory is oracle7 and it has read write permissions. I am creating database as user oracle7.
So there should not be any permisions issues.

I issued this command to create the database
SVRMGR> connect internal
SVRMGR> startup nomount
SVRMGR> create database orcl
        maxinstances 1
        maxlogfiles  8
        datafile '$ORACLE_HOME/dbs/orcl_syst_01.dbf' size 40M reuse
        logfile
                '$ORACLE_HOME/dbs/orcl_redo_01.dbf' size 1M reuse,
                '$ORACLE_HOME/dbs/orcl_redo_02.dbf' size 1M reuse,
                '$ORACLE_HOME/dbs/orcl_redo_03.dbf' size 1M reuse;


and recieved the above errors.
I removed Sql.bsq file also.

Aaargh! You MUST not remove this file, it is necessary and mandatory for database creation.

Hi Michel,
I reinstalled oracle server and it created the default database.
The installation went successfull with one error:

Oracle Web Listener, Version 1.01fc5
Copyright 1995 Oracle Corp. All Right Reserved.
Error: maid Service(maid.SCO_SV3.2.release) exited with unexpected error: the server was unable to initialize.
Information: The server is exiting

Is this error any cause of concern?

Thanks

No, it is safe, it is only related to one old component (the name I don't remember) that was seldomly used. I assume you chose all options on installation.

Hi Michel,

During installation of forms 6i on Unix, igot following error:

$ ./orainst
Supported Terminals are:

Term=scoansi ORacle_term=
Can't find resource file
/cdrom/orainst/./tk2{TERM}.res or
/cdrom/orainst/./tk2{ORACLE_TERM}.res
Please sete your TERM variable to one of the supported terminals.
Exiting orainst procedure.


In my .profile file i have set TERM and ORACLE_TERM to ansi.

Thanks

Are your clients aware that they're using obsolete, unsupported software?

I just can't understand why you'd use it - it still needs licensing, so cost can't be the reason.
