When installing a 10G database we encountered a ORA-27054 error message. To be presice we got the following errors:
ORA-19624: Operation failed, retry possible
ORA-19870: Error reading backup piece /oebs/vm1/10.2.0/db/assistants/dbca/templates/Seed_Database.dfb
ORA-19505: Failed to identify file "oebs/vm1/10.2.0/db/assistants/dbca/templates/Seed_Database.dfb"
ORA-27054: NFS file system where the file is created or resides is not mounted with the correct options.
After looking into the way we mounted the Oracle Enterprise Linux box to the Netapp filer we found out that some things options where missing. Even do we where capable of working on the remote storage the installer was unable to install the 10G database.
Oracle suggested to use:
10.20.30.40:/vol/prd/vm1 /oebs/vm1nfs -yes rw,hard,nointr,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,tcp,noac,vers=3
We finally used the following entry in /etc/fstab:
10.20.30.40:/vol/prd/vm1 /oebs/vm1 nfs rw,hard,nointr,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,tcp,noac,vers=3
This solved the ORA-27054 (and the other) errors.
