ECC 5.0 IDES installation error: TNS Permission Denied


I am trying to install a IDES ECC 5.0 on a virtual machine using VMware. I've installed Win 2003 EE X64 and have done the preparatory work for installation. I am successfully able to install the Oracle DB software, the central instance, but I keep getting the following error when I install the database instance:

ERROR 2006-12-07 21:55:24

CJS-00084 SQL statement or script failed.

DIAGNOSIS: Error message: ORA-12546: TNS:permission denied

The step where this occurs is labeled "Create Oracle Database" in SAPinst

I don't know what "TNS permission denied" means. I suppose it may be looking for a directory access, but the user, <sid>adm, that I am using is the system administrator and has full access to the entire system. I don't know where to look to troubleshoot this problem.

Few other general notes about the installation:

-CDs are on a network directory where the <sid>adm has read/write access

-I have split the SAPDATA1 into two: SAPDATA1 & SAPDATA2

-SAPDATA1 is about 60GB and SAPDATA2 has about 15GB

-SAPDATA1 & SAPDATA2 are on different drives on this machine

-Non-unicode installation

-Although this is a 64-bit OS, I am installing the 32-bit Oracle/SAP

-This machine has 2GB memory and 2 drives: 30GB & 130GB

-I have started from scratch 7 times and am getting stuck at the same spot

-TNS Listner service is started and running properly. It is started using the "Local System" account.

Any help would be great.

    Hi Peter,

    Could you please check Notes 384839, 437362 and 396873? You could also

    check the log files in the ORACLE_HOME directory. Most probably its an

    authorization issue for the local file system and not the network CDs.

    Best Regards

      Actually it turned out that I can't install the 32-bit version on a 64-bit OS. I tried installing it on a 32-bit Windows 2000 Server, and it worked!

    TNS-12546 TNS:permission denied

    Cause: User has insufficient privileges to perform the requested operation.

    Action: Acquire necessary privileges and try again.
