How to relink Oracle 8.1.7.3 DB after patches are applied.

Hi,

We plan on installing OS patches.
One of those patches is PHSS_27964. The README file says that Oracle needs to be relinked. My question is what are the procedures to relink the Oracle database?
(I don't have access to Metalink).

Server: HP-UX 11.0 VPO 6.14 Oracle 8.1.7.3

10 points to any good answer.
Thank you
Gino

Hi,
easy way:
- shudown oracle
- shutdown listener
- shutdown every other oracle application, like dbsnmp

su - oracleuser
relink all


If that does not help, i will come with the longer solution....

HTH,
Massimo

Hi,
longer solution, usefull when relinkin releases < 8.1


If you do need to relink, you can do it from the command line.
Login as the OS user who installed Oracle, normally "oracle".
Each product has it's own "make" file. The make file is located in the $ORACLE_HOME/"product"/lib directory. In each make file there is a list of "targets", you need to use one of the targets.
Example:
cd $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/install
make -f ins_rdbms.mk install
cd $ORACLE_HOME/network/install
make -f ins_network.mk install
cd $ORACLE_HOME/sqlplus/install
make -f ins_sqlplus.mk install

Make sure the database and listener are shutdown before you relink.


HTH,

Make sure the database and listener are down.

NO oracle processes running
Install the patches.

1.Login as oracle
2.Make sure LD_LIBRARY_PATH and ORACLE_HOME are set properly.
3.$ORACLE_HOME/bin/relink all

Hi Gino,

to add to above replies,

To relink individual products:

E.g.
$ cd $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/lib
$ make -f ins_rdbms.mk install


% cd $ORACLE_HOME/sqlplus/lib
% make -f ins_sqlplus.mk install


% cd $ORACLE_HOME/network/lib
% make -f ins_net_server.mk install

Finally, unless you have a specific reason for installing patchset 8.1.7.3, the latest available is 8.1.7.4 would be recommended install.
