    Exclamation Unanswered: New Install on Solaris *

    I am attempting to install Oracle 8.1.7 on a Soalris 8 system (Ultra-5, 512 MB RAM, 20 GB disk).

    I made sure that Solaris was patched up as required for Oracle.

    The install goes fine. However, it is when I attempt to start the Oracle Sever that I have a problem.

    I run svrmgrl to start Oracle, and this is what happens:

    ------start--------
    bash-2.03$ ./svrmgrl

    Oracle Server Manager Release 3.1.7.0.0 - Production

    Copyright (c) 1997, 1999, Oracle Corporation. All Rights Reserved.

    Oracle8i Enterprise Edition Release 8.1.7.0.0 - Production
    With the Partitioning option
    JServer Release 8.1.7.0.0 - Production

    SVRMGR> connect internal
    Connected.
    SVRMGR> startup
    ORA-03113: end-of-file on communication channel
    SVRMGR>
    ------end--------

    After that, I quit svrmgrl and check for the presence of oracle processes:

    ------start--------
    SVRMGR> quit
    Server Manager complete.
    bash-2.03$ ps -ef | grep oracle
    oracle 9856 1 0 14:09:30 ? 0:00 /usr/openwin/bin/xterm -display 209.73.197.14:0.0
    oracle 9895 9858 0 15:01:55 pts/2 0:00 grep oracle
    oracle 8016 1 0 Feb 12 ? 0:00 /opt/oracle/product/8.1.7/bin/tnslsnr LISTENER -inherit
    oracle 9858 9856 0 14:09:30 pts/2 0:00 bash
    bash-2.03$
    ------end--------

    As you can see, only the listener is running, and I cannot connect to Oracle with sqlplus.

    I am at my wits end. I have learned through some of the forums that the ORA-01331 error is a shared memory problem of some kind, but I am not sure how it relates to my problem, and what I would have to do to fix it.

    Any help in this area would be awesome.

    Hi ,
    Although I come from WinNT/2000 environment but still if it helps.. Just check out whether the environmental variables are in shape in ur .profile file.
    Secondly issue the command Shutdown abort then try to issue startup command.
    Hope it helps

    There is no evidence to suggest this is a shared memory problem.

    The ORA-3113 is a generic error - it means communication has been lost with the server process - we don't know why.

    Check the alert.log, USER_DUMP_DEST for any trace files, and CORE_DUMP_DEST for core files.

    If there are no other errors in the alert log and no trace files/core dumps (I'm sure there must be) then truss the sqlplus session.

    If you don't know how to use truss, let me know.

    My 1st suspicion is that /etc/system does not have the correct values.
    Please post the contents of your /etc/system file.
