check the file exists or not...

try doing this

ls -l /home/oracle/u01

if this exists then give the permission to this directory itself

chmod 775 -R /home/oracle/u01/

Set the permission for ORACLE_BASE to 775

for more information on setting the permission please check the below URL:

you must change the permissions to /home/oracle/u01/app/oracle/  and its subdirectories to 775

chmod -R /home/oracle/u01/app/oracle/ 775

I went to root and gave this

what could be the problem..

[root@IND ~]# chmod -R /home/oracle/u01/app/oracle/ 775
chmod: invalid mode: `/home/oracle/u01/app/oracle/'
Try `chmod --help' for more information.
[root@IND ~]# chmod -R /home/oracle/u01/app/oracle/ 775

you should try
chmod 755 -R /home/oracle/u01/app/oracle

Open in new window
