i installed a SA 12.0 Advanced server edition, and still hit this issue:
The "Allocating a communication buffer failed" error occurs when the communication layer (on either the client or server) is attempting to allocate another communication buffer (in this case a piece of file-backed shared memory) and the allocation failed. This can happen for a number of different reasons:
In your specific case (of running dbinit) it is unlikely that the first case (no address space) is the cause of the problem, and I'm going to assume that the second case (no memory or backing store) is unlikely since you would have hopefully seen that the system was short on memory!??
You did not mention which version of HP-UX you were using so I cannot rule out the fifth case (unforeseen incompatibility) but that too is unlikely unless you are using a version of HP-UX that has not been tested before (and HP has introduce a compatibility issue - it wouldn't be the first time that such a thing had happened).
My nickel will go to either the third case (permission problem) or fourth case (full disk). Is it possible that one of these things occurred:
