iFs on Solaris/8.1.6

3004 Member Posts: 204,171 Green Ribbon
I am trying to run the final script ifssetup as root after installing and configuring iFS this is the error that I am receiving.


lbdev-db-1 4# ifssetup
Setting up iFS jws directory
Enter the password for the iFS schema named ifssys: ifssys
ORA-01034: ORACLE not available

Invalid password specified or Oracle 8i database not running.
Some control files need to be updated with the iFS schema
password to bring up the iFS Java Web Server. Please rerun
/usr/local/server/oracle/product/8.1.6/ifs/bin/ifsjwssetup with the correct iFS
schema password to use JWS.

*Cause: Oracle was not started up. Possible causes include the following:
// - The SGA requires more space than was allocated for it.
// - The operating-system variable pointing to the instance is
// improperly defined.
// *Action: Refer to accompanying messages for possible causes and correct
// the problem mentioned in the other messages.
// If Oracle has been initialized, then on some operating systems,
// verify that Oracle was linked correctly. See the platform
// specific Oracle documentation.

    After you login as root, do an env to verify that your Oracle environment variables are set correctly. It sounds like the ORACLE_SID is not set.

    I login as the oracle unix user, then do a 'su'. This will retain your environment so you can start all the services as root.

    Hope this helps.
