    Server/Oracle setup 

    Because of the server TWO_TASK configuration, the oracle server seems to be unable to access $TMPDIR in the application server. It must be defined in a partition/device shared by both servers. 

    Not all the App server must be accessible to the Oracle server. Only the $TMPDIR directory must be accessible. It can be defined on some shared device. 

    You can check the definition of the TMPDIR-variable on the App server: 
    >echo $TMPDIR 

    In this example on the DB server the UNIX user "oracle" must be able to access files in directory /exlibris/aleph/a22_2/tmp on App server.
