Hi all,

Linux server,
Am using the linux server for the last 3 years without any incident then after doing a reboot, errors shown are:

Error 6 initializing SQL*Plus
Message file sp1<lang>.msb not found
SP2-0750: You may need to set ORACLE_HOME to your Oracle sofware directory.

Confirmed that ORACLE_HOME, ORACLE_BASE,etc are already set.

When i do the following:
$cd $ORACLE_HOME/bin
shows that in correct directory.

encountered the above error.

Confirmed that path in ORACLE_HOME and /etc/oratab are identical.

Please advise.

Thanks in advance
