EBS 11.5.10.2 installation Fails - create controlfile

Hello All

I am trying to install EBS 11.5.10.2 (test system) on Oracle Linux 5.8 (Apps tier 32-bit, database tier 64-bit). During the database creation phase I am getting this error: RW-50004 (Creating controlfile), so I checked log files and its says

ORA-01031: insufficient privileges

I tried to login to instance on database tier after sourcing env file but I got the same error. But if I create password file and then login sys/password as sysdba, it logs me in to an idle instance.

But I need rapidwiz to pass this step. So please suggest what should I do?.

Regards
Amit

    Hi Amit,

    First of all, please note that Oracle 9i (which comes with 11.5.10.2) is not certified on OEL 5

    Have you added the OS user who owns the database tier files to the dba group?

    OERR: ORA 1031 "insufficient privileges" [ID 18622.1]
    Troubleshooting ORA-1031: Insufficient Privileges While Connecting As SYSDBA [ID 730067.1]

    At what stage/step you get this error?

    Please upload all the installation log files to any free hosting website and post the link here (in one zip file).

    You do not need to create a password file at this level, and connecting as sysdba through oracle user and after sourcing the database env file does not need a password file.

    Also, please confirm that md5sum was run successfully -- MD5 Checksums for 11i10 Rapid Install Media [ID 289821.1]

    Thanks,

    OK -- Please update the thread with the output of md5sum.

    Also, please confirm that you have created the necessary OS group/user and installed all required packages along with the kernel settings.

    Thanks,
    Hussein
