      Hi,

      OUI interprets the below paths has two different ORACLE_HOME during 11.2.0.1 to 11.2.0.3 patch upgrade, appreciated your response.

      /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1/

      /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1

      Regards,

          Pl post exact OS version and the complete error message. Are you trying an in-place install/upgrade (i.e. in the same ORACLE_HOME) ? An out-of-place install/upgrade is recommended.

            These 2 are indeed 2 different OORACLE_HOME for oracle and hence care should be taken when setting up ORACLE_HOME. You might end up starting same database twice on Unix if you set the above 2 ORACLE_HOME and try starting same DB from each of these ORACLE_HOME.
