DBMS_SCHEDULER External Job Fail With ORA-27301/ORA-27302 at: sjsec 6a (Doc ID 1074922.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 04, 2018

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version and later
Linux x86-64

Through dbms_scheduler, Unix shell scripts are being called but fail with error message:

ORA-12012: error on auto execute of job 100613
ORA-27370: job slave failed to launch a job of type EXECUTABLE
ORA-27300: OS system dependent operation:getting external job pid failed with status: 2
ORA-27301: OS failure message: No such file or directory
ORA-27302: failure occurred at: sjsec 6a

When the external job is run via strace/truss that extjob could not find

The OS "ldd $ORACLE_HOME/bin/extjob" command returns correct $ORACLE_HOME/lib location for libclntsh and the permission on the file are correct.

Setting "LD_LIBRARY_PATH" to point to "$ORACLE_HOME/lib" where the library actually resides in the environment or in the external job shell script does not resolve problem either.
