    Unable to start Database after execution of OPatch prerequisite in 11gR2

    Ramakant.c
      Hi ,
      I have two node RAC on which oracle 11gR2 (11.2.0.1) running. For upgrading it to 11.2.0.2 I executed the prerequisite opatch check but after that I can see that my
      oracle database is not running on both the nodes. I used the latest OPatch.
      Here are the steps I performed -
      [root@ram1 patches]# su - oracle
      [oracle@ram1 ~]$ cd $ORACLE_HOME/OPatch
      [oracle@ram1 OPatch]$ *./opatch prereq CheckConflictAgainstOHWithDetail -phBaseDir /patches*
      ..
      Prereq "checkConflictAgainstOHWithDetail" passed.

      OPatch succeeded.

      [oracle@ram1 ~]$ srvctl status database -d ram
      Instance ram1 is not running on node ram1
      Instance ram2 is not running on node ram2

      [oracle@ram1 ~]$ srvctl start database -d ram
      PRCR-1079 : Failed to start resource ora.ram.db
      ORA-01034: ORACLE not available
      ORA-27101: shared memory realm does not exist
      Linux-x86_64 Error: 2: No such file or directory
      Process ID: 0
      Session ID: 0 Serial number: 0

      Appreciate for your advise.

      Best Regards,
