BaseLVM B.11.31.0903 Logical Volume Manager

Now Oracle DBA are mentioning that due to this patches installation they are facing the below error

SQL> alter database datafile '/oracle/P01/sapdata6/stabd_24/stabd.data24' resize 7000M;
alter database datafile '/oracle/P01/sapdata6/stabd_24/stabd.data24' resize 7000M
*
ERROR at line 1:

ORA-27072: File I/O error
HPUX-ia64 Error: 22: Invalid argument
Additional information: 4
Additional information: 768256

Is the above error is due to these patches installation
Kindly suggest to resolve this issues.

Re: Problem with extending oracle tablespaces after certain standard Patch installation

before debugging to patches & its buggs .. ask some some questions to your DBA...

what is the current size of /oracle/P01/sapdata6/stabd_24/stabd.data24

does dba facing issue only on this table space ??

what about the remaining tables ??it it able to increase space on them ?

what is the filesyetms/inode utilizations ?

how he get to know, issue is because of patch installation

did you installed same patches on any other servers ?

Re: Problem with extending oracle tablespaces after certain standard Patch installation

Shalom,

You may need to relink oracle or back out the patch set.

If the results are consistent on all systems, back out the patch set, if Oracle support can not help you resolve the issue.

We are in process of installing the September 2009 11.31 patch set on Oracle systems and have not encountered similar problems.

I've seen patches impact Oracle functionality before and relink usually helps. Also if you have HP-UX software support, the HP Response Center has an Oracle Liaison group that will work with Oracle to assist in resolving the issue.

This looks like a disk write error to me.

First check if there is room in the filesystem to grow that oracle file by the specified amount. The DBA may be trying to extend the file beyond the filesystem size.

If there is space, there is probably a disk write error. Try to create or copy files in that same path (same filessytem) from the OS and see if you get the similar errors.

The disk error may not be related to the patches, it was probably always there but that specific spot on the disk was never written to until now.
