Both errors happen to me when I want to create Oracle Database 10.2.0.4 using ASM on RHEL5 i686 (32-bit).
All process during ASM Creation was happen smoothly without any complaint and any error.
Then, after ASM creation completed, and new database creation process started. The process stuck whenever I want to enter ASM password, an error occur:
Password cannot be verified because io exception: The Network Adapter could not establish te connection.
Take a deep breath, make a wish, light up a cigarette and yeah…got the idea….owh, my listener not started. Hahaha..
Then configure the listener using Net Configuration Assistant (netca) or whatever tools you like, start the listener and there are no “password cannot verified” error.
Ok, solved a problem and then the next problem happen during DBCA when the progress bar reach 42%.
ORA-01092: ORACLE instance terminated. Disconnection forced.
Ok, I’ve no idea at first, what is this ORA-01092 error about. After checked the alert log, there are the error:
ORA-00704: bootstrap process failure
ORA-39700: database must be opened with UPGRADE option
ORA-00313: open failed for members of log group 1 of thread 1 DBCA
Then found in metalink about this error (ID 859663.1).
Use Custom database template instead of General Purpose or Transaction Processing Template.
This happen IF patch set has applied before database creation and Pre-existing Datafiles are not “upgraded” during the patch bundle/patch set installation.
Incase the following error happen:
Refer to my older post HERE
Uninstall everything, do fresh installation WITHOUT patch first. Create ASM and Database, then apply patch set installation.
