Error: Failed to connect to aleph21
Tue Apr 23 09:29:30 EDT 2013 Step aleph21_add_datafiles.bash [ Failed ]
UNIX user aleph could not connect to the Oracle database aleph21 as database user ALEPH_ADMIN.
2. When trying to connect to the database as user ALEPH_ADMIN by means of SQL*Plus the following error message was received:
aleph@aleph-arc(a21_1):> sqlplus $ALEPH_ADMIN

ORA-12547: TNS:lost contact
The permissions on the file /exlibris/app/oracle/product/11r2/bin/oracle (the Oracle server binary) are incorrect. In order to allow UNIX users other that oraleph (owner of the Oracle 188.8.131.52 software) to connect to the Oracle database instance aleph21, the Set-User-ID Bit and the Set-Group-Id Bit of the file /exlibris/app/oracle/product/11r2/bin/oracle must be set. This means that the permissions on the file /exlibris/app/oracle/product/11r2/bin/oracle must look as follows (file mode 6751):
However, the permissions look like this (file mode 755):
Shut down the Oracle database aleph21 (as UNIX user oraleph):
$ sqlplus / as sysdba
SQL> shutdown immediate
Execute the script root.sh to set the correct the permissions on the files extjob, ..., oradism listed above (as UNIX user root):
$ su - root
# cd /exlibris/app/oracle/product/11r2
Set the correct the permissions on the file /exlibris/app/oracle/product/11r2/bin/oracle (as UNIX user oraleph):
$ chmod 6751 /exlibris/app/oracle/product/11r2/bin/oracle
Start the Oracle database aleph21 (as UNIX user oraleph):
$ sqlplus / as sysdba
Verify that UNIX user aleph can connect to the Oracle database aleph21 as database user ALEPH_ADMIN:
$ su - aleph
$ sqlplus $ALEPH_ADMIN

Execute AIK Step 6.3 again.
When checking the Oracle binaries in the directory /exlibris/app/oracle/product/11r2/bin, it was found that the permissions on the following files were also incorrect:
Oracle requires that the Set-User-ID Bit of these files is set, too. To be more precise, the permissions on these files must look as follows:
