Oracle10g: ORA-01041 Error on Oracle Database Configuration Assistant
Posted on 2004-11-18
I am installing Oracle10g Application Server on my PC (to test some of their B2B functionality). According to their documentation I have to install the "Infrastruture" first. This creates the Metadata Repository, Internet Directory Structure, etc.
So I ran that install. The files were copied/installed successfully. Then it started running the configuration assistants. This worked great too until I got the Oracle Database Configuration Assistant. The first two steps ran successfully:
1. Copying database files - SUCCEEDED
2. Initializing database - SUCCEEDED
3. Creating and starting Oracle instance - *** FAILING ***
On the third step, when it gets to 39% completed I get the following popup error: "ORA-01041: internal error. hostdef extension doesn't exist.". I have looked on the net for this error. I don't see any solutions that apply to this scenario. Is this an environment issue?
Experts - I would appreciate any help you can give me. I am stuck until I get past this.
Thanks In Advance!
