Permission error during Oracle Virtual to Physical

  • 1.  Permission error during Oracle Virtual to Physical

    Posted 03-10-2015 02:40:00 PM
    Hello,

    During the V2P of an Oracle Virtual DB I received from the delphix admin console
    ORA-01078: failure in processing system parameters
    ORA-27040: file create error, unable to create file
    Linux-x86_64 Error: 13: Permission denied

    I tried to reply the command create spfile='/u01/app/oracle/oradata/myDB/data/spfile.ora' from pfile= ...;

    and I received the same error.

    I found out that the directory /u01/app/oracle/oradata/myDB/data/ had the delphix_os owner, the oinstall group, but the permission was 5 on the group so oracle user cannot write the file.

    What did I miss?

    A possible workaround is to assign the oracle user to the environment, but I want to know what is the problem.

    Thank you.

    Gianpiero

    Hey Gianpiero, you are 100% correct. In the current version of Landshark 2.X, there are some permissions inconsistencies that slipped past me. I have slated to fix them in the next release. So, for now, you can just manually change the group permissions and proceed. In my Landshark environments, I just
    chmod -R g+rwx /u01/app/ora* /u02/app/ora* 

    You obviously can get more fine grained than that, if you so chose.

    As an additional note, there is a bug in this version of Delphix that allowed you to progress to this point. The Delphix engine should have presented a notice to you that there was a mismatch and prompted you to make corrections. Thanks for posting this question!

    Thank you for your prompt replies.The version on I am working is "Delphix Engine - Demo 4.1.4.0". When will the next release be available?
    And what about the production version of Delphix (not the Demo version), there is the same inconsistency?
    Thank you.

    The next Landshark update will be after the 4.2 release of Delphix, which should be within the next 30 days. The "production version" of the 4.1.4.0 Delphix Engine also has this bug, but has been addressed in a subsequent update.
