BRM Installation Failed

I'm trying to install Oracle BRM 7.3 on Solaris and Unix, and everything is well until I try to run the pin_setup. I always receive the same error:
pcmdd: bad connect for orion, errno 146
Re-reading the pin.conf file "./pin.conf" since it has changed. Previous file mod time was 1244049508, now it is 1244050447
errno=<PIN_ERR_DM_CONNECT_FAILED:26> location=<Unknown pin location:0> class=<UNKNOWN:0> f
ield num=<0:0,0> recid=<0> reserved=<146>
pcmdd: bad connect for orion, errno 146

Also I have tried to start the dm_oracle and all the components running the scripts in 7.3/bin and the result is always the same:
Executing start_dm_oracle

    Your question is a bit off-topic, but any way. It look like you BRM instance is not able to connect to the database and/or server. Is the database/server reachable via host and port number?

    Yes, It is. The database woks correctly and it is modified by the pin_setup script, but the dm_oracle does not work.

    Hi everyone,

    It looks like a memory crash by missing a dynamic link.

    Try to do this...

    1. Find out the dm_sm_obj

    1.1. cd $PIN_HOME/sys/dm_oracle
    1.2. grep dm_sm_obj pin.conf

    this action returns:

    - dm dm_sm_obj /opt/portal/7.3.1/sys/dm_oracle/<obj_name>.so

    (obj_name: could be or; it is based of your environment)

    2. Now, get all libraries and objects linked to dm_sm_obj

    2.1. ldd

    ldd command : list dynamic dependencies of executable files or shared objects.

    this action returns: => /opt/portal/7.3.1/lib/ => /opt/portal/7.3.1/lib/ => (file not found) << this is an example >> => /usr/lib/
    .. and many more references ..

    look over "(file not found)" message;

    2.2. find out the missing dynamic dependencies

    find $ORACLE_HOME -name

    this action returns:


    if you have many <obj_name> in your system, use one by one directory; do not add all the libraries.

    2.3. adding the missing library to LD_LIBRARY_PATH


    2.4 Restart the Setup execution

    cd $PIN_HOME/setuo

    if the error message is displaying againg, go back to 2.3. step and use the next library

    Do not hesitate to send a message.

    Just to verify:


    1) If you were using the db on the same machine, set the db env using oraenv and then the brm env using then try pin_setup. Due to improper env variables, the .so files may not find the libraries properly.

    You can check the .so file's validity using ldd command.

    2) If the pin_setup failed, some of the processes will still be runnning in the background. So ensure to restart os or kill all relevant processes before retrying the same.
