I am installing Oracle9i RAC on ia64 servers. I have installed JDK patch 5390952 and clusterware/DB patch # 4547809
Ocm is running fine.When I try to create database with dbca, it stops at 37% and displays messages - "ORA-01503- CREATE CONTROLFILE FAILED" "ORA-01565-ERROR IN IDENTIFYING CWMLITE01.DBF" "ORA-27047 UNABLE TO READ HEADER BLOCK OF FILE". After this installation stops.
I have attached the screenshot for same.
I tried changing size of cwmlite01.dbf etc but it does not help.
Sounds like you may have an old fragment of a controlfile out there that the install is attempting to re-use. Before you create the database, make sure that all previous attempts are removed. Take especial care to remove the correct files, if more than one Oracle instance is running on this machine.
