Hello,

I am trying to create a new Datafile using OEM on my Linux Red Hat Enterprise 3 (ES) server.
When trying to create a new Object of type Datafile and specifying the name and size attributes, I get the following error:

ORA-01119: error in creating database file '/Disk/oradata/alcieind1.dbf'
ORA-27040: skgfrcre: create error, unable to create file
Linux Error 2: no such file or directory

Please advice ?

make sure that you have the correct file path '/Disk/oradata/alcieind1.dbf'?

do you really have '/Disk/oradata/' directory?

can you post the results of the following commands back?

$df -k


and

$ls -R /Disk

I'm guessing that you've already checked and the filesystem '/Disk/oradata' exists?
Also check that the 'oracle' user has write access to the directory

Hello,

How can I make sure that the oracle user has write access to the
/DISK1/ORADATA directory ?

Case does matter in UNIX system.

can you do this and post the results back?

$ ls -al /DISK1/ORADATA          --or whatever the directory is...

so you have to be careful with the letter case when you are trying to create data file ...

you can change the permission of the directory like this:

say if your oracle user account is "oracle" and it's in dba group

then you have to log in as ROOT into the LINUX OS:

$ chown -R oracle:dba    /Disk1/oradata
