Re-installing won't work, been there, done that, installed Oracle on
three different Solaris 8 installations following the Oracle defaults
and no go. Here is what somebody sent me to get this going:
This did the trick - try changing your semaphore setting on parameter
SEMMNS from the suggested 200 to 2000 in /etc/system; reboot. Then
all SID instances by deleting from dbassist and then manually removing
instances. I then ran dbassist to create a new database.
I set SEMMNS to 2000 but I have a feeling it will work as low as 300.
It definitely does not work with the suggested 200 on Solaris 8 01/01,
Solaris 8 01/01 MU4, and Solaris 8 04/01 on a Blade 100. Maybe the
Oracle suggestions were for Solaris 7 and before.
