Environment Variables not set permanently before inst. of EH4 IDES

Dear Team,

 

We have done the EHP4 IDES installation on HP-UX with Oracle 10g. We have not set the environment variables permanently before installation of EHP4 IDES. We have given env. variables temporarily for that session. After installation We have done some post installation steps like Profile Parameter settings, SGEN. As our oraacrch got filled, system hanged. So obviously I need to restart my server. Soon after I tried to restart my server, I 'm getting error as SAPSYSTEMNAME not set and when tried to restart my database, getting error as start the Database DB must be restarted from remote Server.

 

I appreciate the team for the help in resolving the issue.

 

 

Thanks & Regards,

Balamuralikrishna

    Hi,

     

    As our oraacrch got filled, system hanged. So obviously I need to restart my server.

     

    Why u need to restart the server for archiver stuck!? You can simply remove the old logs and let the oracle write the new logs.

     

    What are all the parameters set temporarily ? Have u tried to start the SAP instance with these parameters set again ? Post us the startup/startdb logs. These will help us guide you.

      Dear Varadharajan,

       

      I'm thankful for your response to my posting.

       

      The environment variables I have set temporarily are:

       

      setenv DISPLAY IPaddress:0.0

       

      setenv JAVA_PATH /opt/java1.4

       

      setenv PATH /opt/java1.4/bin:$PATH

       

      setenv ORACLE_BASE /oracle

       

      setenv ORACLE_HOME /oracle/sid/102_64

       

      setenv ORACLE_SID SID

       

      setenv LIBRARY_PATH  $ORACLE_HOME

       

      setenv SAPDATA_HOME /oracle/sid

       

      setenv SHLIB_PATH /oracle/sid/102_64/lib:/usr/sap/SID/SYS/exe/run

       

      After setting these environment variables in the terminal, I have continued with my installation. After the successful installation, I have restarted my server, I'm unable to start oracle database. It gives error like ORACLE_HOME: undefined variable, SAPSYSTEMNAME is not set. ......

       

      I believe I'm getting the error because of environment variables not set permanently. I want to know to how to set the environment variables permanently and globally available to all users. What are the files in which we need to make changes in HP-UX 11 v3.  I'm new to HP-UX so please guide me to overcome from this issue.

       

      Thanks & Regards,
