hi !

Thanks to Hussein's great help I was able to make it work once but then I deinstalled it and now installing again from fresh but I can't get it to work , it keep failing with same error :

Note: I am not recreating the staging area from scratch but Iam using the staging area from previous installation assuming this is a static enviornment.

Log file located at /ebs/oracle/VIS/db/tech_st/11.1.0/appsutil/log/VIS_sunny/ApplyDatabase_10260217.log

  Running Database Install Driver for VIS instance
I am installing as oracle and choose oracle:dba as database owner and applmgr:dba as apps owner.

I made sure the permissions on oraInventory directory is 777 , also on the /var/tmp/.oracle . I checked every step in preinstall document for validity and they all pass.

even though its complaining about control file but i can start the database in mount state , although it crashes if i try to open.


my project settings are as follows :


group.dba:100:oracle kernel parameters:oracle:dba:process.max-sem-nsems=(priv,256,deny);project.max-file-descriptor=(priv,65536,deny);project.max-sem-ids=(priv,100,deny);project.max-shm-ids=(priv,100,deny);project.max-shm-memory=(priv,4294967295,deny)


ulimit settings are :

$ ulimit -a

time(seconds) unlimited

file(blocks) unlimited

data(kbytes) unlimited

stack(kbytes) 65536

coredump(blocks) unlimited

nofiles(descriptors) 65536

memory(kbytes) unlimited

oracle group settings are:
uid=301(oracle) gid=1000(dba) groups=1000(dba),2000(applmgr)

applmgr group settings are:
uid=401(applmgr) gid=2000(applmgr) groups=2000(applmgr),1000(dba)

I can start the database in mount state meaning the control file does exist
