sqlplus cannot be executed

Hi All,

I have NW04s installed on AIX 5.3 with oracle 10g.

When ever i try to do a sqlplus i get the following error:

<Hostname>:ora<sid>> sqlplus

SP2-1503: Unable to initialize Oracle call interface

SP2-0152: ORACLE may not be functioning properly

<Hostname>:ora<sid>

Please help me out in finding out the solution for this error.

I have checked the path of ORACLE_HOME and its correct.

I have checked for the Library path and other env variables which are correct.

Thanks,

Fahad

    Hi Fahad

    Have you applied the latest patchset for Oracle? You should be on 10.2.0.2.

    If you are on 10.2.0.1 there is an Oracle bug that causes incorrect permission on Oracle installation directories which causes this error when executing sqlplus. If you are on this release you could download and apply patch 4516865 from Oracle but it would be best to apply the 10.2.0.2 patchset.

    Cheers

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply.

    The issue with us was the mount options of File systems in OS. We changed the mount options of /oracle/<SID>/102_64 to rw and i am able to connect to sqlplus now.
