    If you are provisioning XE database, be aware that Oracle does not allow two XE instances on the same server. Disable any running instances on the Linuxtarget and then provision again.

    Hi, If your not in Adam's case, check out your /dev/shm size. 00845, 00000, "MEMORY_TARGET not supported on this system" // *Cause: The MEMORY_TARGET parameter was not supported on this operating system or /dev/shm was not sized correctly on Linux. // *Action: Refer to documentation for a list of supported operating systems. Or, size /dev/shm to be at least the SGA_MAX_SIZE on each Oracle instance running on the system. Regards, Mouhssine
