Thanks for the responses. Yes, one way to fix this would be to move off o= f Siemens! :)

I don't think it has anything to do with redirecting my display. It can't=  find the file that it's looking for:

instnd01:> ls -al ../stage/Components/oracle/swd/jre/1.1.7/1/DataFiles/E= xpanded/jre/reliantunix/bin/jre
=2E./stage/Components/oracle/swd/jre/1.1.7/1/DataFiles/Expanded/jre/relia= ntunix/bin/jre: No such file or directory

It does exist if you change the path to start inthe current directory:

instnd01:> ls -al ./stage/Components/oracle/swd/jre/1.1.7/1/DataFiles/Exp= anded/jre/reliantunix/bin/jre
-rwxrwxrwx 1 59684 8305 743 Mar 30 1999 ./stage/Components/= oracle/swd/jre/1.1.7/1/DataFiles/Expanded/jre/reliantunix/bin/jre

This seems like a faulty script to me. Does oracle test this stuff at all=  before they ship it?! I know Siemens isn't exactly "first tier", but thi= s is ridiculous.

I have a tar open, I'll post the solution to the list.

Thanks again,

Hi! suzy that works on almost all other servers (IBM,SUN i have seen!)...  but siemens NO!

 In fact we have had to take the decision of moving away databases from Reliant servers
 just because of this...

 I am very (very!) keen to know the solution...

 Is some siemens engineer, or Oracle guy looking this list!????

Jerry count me also , if you are making a count of people facing same problem!!!

Did you set DISPLAY and xhost + ? Does /tmp have plenty of space ??
