OS--> Enterprise linux 5.5 64 bit
I have an Oracle 10gr2 patch issue. The following are the steps what I followed and facing the error while upgrading the database from 10.2.0.1.0 to 10.2.0.4.0 with ASM as Storage option and it’s installed as single instance Standalone server. I perform this just to check the compatibility.
kindly let me know the steps to upgrade from oracle 10g 10.2.0.1.0-->10.2.0.4.0 with asm as storage in a stand alone server...
seems to be a known bug.
And answer to your another question from other post is
When the "/bin/su ..." command is run, the .profile (or .bashrc or .cshrc) of the oracle user is loaded.
If there is a menu or a prompt in the .profile (or .bashrc or .cshrc), the command will hang until we select a menu option or answer the question at the prompt. So you have to disable the prompt command in order to avoid the hang.
Please mark this thread and your other thread as answered if you think your issue is resolved.
This is my bash profile. and the last two lines i added, since i installed 32 bit software on 64 bit EL5
# Get the aliases and functions
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
# User specific environment and startup programs
Any Idea TSharma?
The /bin/su command does not run any shell config files for Oracle, unless you do su - oracle, which does not apply to root.sh. The root.sh script should be run as root.
I suggest to restart the server, then debug the execution of init.cssd to see if there are any clues. I do not have any 10g installation here, but I think something like the following should work:
sh -x /etc/init.d/init.cssd
Regarding you Oracle script, the linux32 command only changes what uname reports, but does not make a x64 system x86 compliant. To my knowledge, it is not possible to successfully install Oracle 32-bit under a x86_64 Linux kernel, at least not under 11g, because it uses core system libraries for x86 architecture, which cannot be installed under a x64 system. The ASM installer, at least under 11g, installs additional kernel drivers, which are x64 or x86 and version specific. You problem could be there.
Thanks for your reply..
I cannot reboot the server even though its built using vmware. Since it hangs at "Adding to inittab", and if i reboot the VM linux server, even the OS boot hangs during the process init.cssd starts. I tried booting the OS many times and stuck where init.cssd start always... So if i want to reboot i want to clean up all links and files related to init.cssd from /etc/init.d and /etc/rc.0,1,2,3,4,5,6 and removing the entry from /etc/inittab. If i do all these clean up i can reboot the server without any problem...
And one more thing i would like to let you know that i can able to install oracle 10g 32( version 10.2.0.1) on a 64 bit machine successfully without any error. I have done a complete search on google and did some mods and tweaks to get this done with no errors.. I still have a VM with me which is EL 5.5 64-bit and oracle 10g 10.2.0.1 32 bit installed on it with ASM as storage option.(standalone server).... Many said its not at all possible... But i did it somehow.. The concept is simple, if you check my vm server for oracle pre-requisites packages, it will show both 32-bit and 64-bit packages together installed.I crashed my VM many times when installing 32-bit packages along with 64-bit packages. Its a risky process. But i was able to do it... There is some configuration is missing like editing the /etc/inittab, dbstart or execution lineup of init.cssd, entry in this 10.2.0.1 to 10.2.0.4 upgrade, i need to find it out.....
Anyone Performed this upgrade(oracle 10.2.0.1 to 10.2.0.4) on a standalone server with ASM as storage and got stuck when u run localconfig reset, after installing the 10.2.0.4 patch over 10.2.0.1??
If you know that init.cssd is the problem, you can simply rename the file so it won't load by any of the startup links in the rc.d directories, e.g.:
mv /etc/init.d/init.cssd /etc/init.d/init.csdd_disabled.
Then reboot the system and try verbose mode to see what id does, e.g.
sh -x /etc/init.d/init.cssd_disabled start
