Big mistake for installation 11gR2

November 26, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Today, I have made a big mistake for installation of 11gR2. I installed the 11gR2 in silent mode and couldn’t encounter any great problems. But when I started to create database in silent as well, it returned the following errors

$  dbca -silent -responseFile /export/home/oracle/database/response/dbca.rsp
Cleaning up failed steps

Look at the log file “/opt/oracle/cfgtoollogs/dbca/testdb/testdb1.log” for further details.

$ cat /opt/oracle/cfgtoollogs/dbca/testdb/testdb1.log

ORA-12560: TNS:protocol adapter error

ORA-12560: TNS:protocol adapter error


I spent 1~2 days surfing on internet to look up solutions. Almost root causes were related to different version of oracle binary after Oracle upgrade or ORACLE_SID were not set. All suggests I have done, but there  were no one to solve my problem. Finally, I found that I make a big mistake to mix different version of oracle zip to install.
