rootpre.sh

I am currently running 9.x on a production server and need to install a seperate 11.x instance. When I ran the rootpre.sh it barked that it wants me to shutdown all the current databases. Is this my only option? Is there any chance of the new rootpre.sh screwing up my current production?

    some, many, most Professionals actually TEST such activities on a test server before doing anything with Production server.

    consider doing the same yourself.

    Pl post exact OS and database versions, along with the exact error code and messages, and a link to the install instructions you are following. Without those, we are all simply guessing :-)

    AIX OSLEVEL: 5.3.0.0
    current production: ORA 10.2.0.4
    Attempting an install of: ORA 11.2.0.1.0

    when executing rootpre.sh I receive the following error:


    phsaix001:/oracle/source_cds/11gR2/database# ./rootpre.sh
    ./rootpre.sh output will be logged in /tmp/rootpre.out_13-03-04.14:49:31
    Kernel extension /etc/pw-syscall.64bit_kernel is loaded.
    Previously loaded kernel extension may be in use. Shutdown all
    the instances of oracle and then rerun the rootpre.sh script.
    Aborting pre-installation procedure. Installations of Oracle may fail.

    Once again: need to know if running new rootpre.sh will harm exist 10g instances and if I even have to run since the older version was run in previous install?

    I have no experience with AIX, but see if this MOS Doc can help

    Is It Necessary To Run The rootpre.sh Script When Installing Oracle On AIX 5L And Above? [ID 201622.1]
