  1. Dears,
    i want to do the same script for linux suse and oracle 12 c
    is that possible or not

  2. A quick search on google reveal:
    To enable hugetlbpages, first you need 2.6 kernel, and then you need to recompile it with the following config options enabled:


    or just disable hugetlb tables:


    If you are doing this you need to have a lot of free RAM

    Anyway optimizing oracle is a heavy job. Take a look after limits.conf and oracle. You need to increase the number of file descriptors and a lot of other things.


  3. The problem I am having is that although this script will start and stop oracle when run on the command line, it does not shutdown oracle at re-boot. After logging a call with RH they told me to check the status within the script by adding the following to the script
    # Source function library.
    . /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions
    and then in the status case statment
    status dbora # ie name of script

    This then returned
    [root@host init.d]# ./dbora status
    dbora dead but subsys locked
    because the status of the system is not running no attempt will be made to shut it down at boot.

    Anyone know what code is required such that status returned will be running?

  4. Hi Nikhil, I had the same problem.
    I settled with the following instructions

    pront > sqlplus /nolog
    SQL>connect / as sysdba

    pront> cd $ORACLE_HOME/bin
    pront> lsnrctl start

  5. I am using oracle 10g through command line..It gives me following error while connecting. i am trying to connect as a dba..i am suse LINUX operating system…
