Hi folks,

I am trying create a new database on an HP Machine (Details given below) but getting following error.

ORA-1501 - signalled during Create Database
LOGFILE 'G:\logfiles\logaf1.ora'

We actually have a custom application setup.exe to create new database.
Same setup when installed on a different low end machine works fine.

Before begining the setup in summary page it shows following information.

Block buffer count = -3 Bytes
Shared Pool Size = -41425 KBytes


Yes the values displayed are in negative.
Don't know if this is the reason for the ORA-1501 error.

Can anyone please suggest how to resolve this issue.



Machine configuration is as follows:
H/W details:
-------------
HP Server with RAID configuration
4, PIII CPU's
RAM: "4 GB"

S/W details
------------
O.S:Windows 2000 Server with Service Pack-2
Oracle Version: 8i
Patch applied: Oracle8i Patch Set Version 8.1.7.3.0

Can anyone please suggest how to resolve this issue.
