Oracle 9i Upgrade Error

Hi Friends,

Whenever you receive an error "Text File Busy" at the time of Upgrade from 9.2.0.6 to any higher version, I would request you to rename the file where error is found with ".backup".

When we are applying upgrade patch to the Oracle Binary, Patch comes with new version of files and it tries to replace the old file. Rename command will rename the file and a new file can be placed at that place.

Upgrade will be done successfully.

Enjoy!!!!!!!!!

  1. thats was indeed helpful even while upgrading from 11.1.0.6 to 11.1.0.7.

    I got text file busy error oracle_home/bin/emagent file . Retrying after the renaming of this file to emagent.backup sorted the issue out. The upgrade was successful.

    thanks
