SAP db cannot startup after install NW711 in HP Unix 11.31 platform

Hi There:

I meet a problem after successful install NW711 in HP unix 11.31 platform, after installation, I cannot startup SAP db. I check harddisk and find :

  1. df -k

/data (/dev/vg01/data ) : 20352206 total allocated Kb

1865271 free allocated Kb

18486935 used allocated Kb

91 % allocation used

/home (/dev/vg00/lvol5 ) : 114080 total allocated Kb

107224 free allocated Kb

6856 used allocated Kb

7 % allocation used

/opt (/dev/vg00/lvol6 ) : 5029336 total allocated Kb

2152576 free allocated Kb

2876760 used allocated Kb

58 % allocation used

/sap (/dev/vg00/sap ) : 29092236 total allocated Kb

13357851 free allocated Kb

15734385 used allocated Kb

55 % allocation used

/tmp (/dev/vg00/lvol4 ) : 521136 total allocated Kb

499064 free allocated Kb

22072 used allocated Kb

5 % allocation used

/usr (/dev/vg00/lvol7 ) : 5794536 total allocated Kb

2773024 free allocated Kb

3021512 used allocated Kb

53 % allocation used

/var (/dev/vg00/lvol8 ) : 8877312 total allocated Kb

4548744 free allocated Kb

4328568 used allocated Kb

49 % allocation used

/stand (/dev/vg00/lvol1 ) : 1822824 total allocated Kb

1552008 free allocated Kb

270816 used allocated Kb

15 % allocation used

/ (/dev/vg00/lvol3 ) : 1043168 total allocated Kb

692552 free allocated Kb

350616 used allocated Kb

34 % allocation used

it looks like /home and /tmp are too small, is it the root cause that caused db cannot startup?

BTW: is there some command can be used to increase /home and /tmp space directly in HP Unix except change to single user mode? (The server is in remote, if I use shutdown -y now to change it to single user mode, I cannot start it until other people help)

Thanks a lot!

    What DB are you using, is this MaxDB ?

    If you successfully installed it then I doubt it is a space issue. If this is MaxDB check your knldiag file which can be found in /sapdb/data/wrk/<DBSID>/ - it should give you the error in last few entries.

    Depending on the actual file system and available space you should be able to use 'lvextend' to increase /home and /tmp.
