OpenVMS: Getting error "ECO_CHECK_10GR1.COM does not exist" When Installing the 10.2.0.4 Patchset (Doc ID 1178365.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 21, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Server - Enterprise Edition - Version: 10.2.0.2 and later   [Release: 10.2 and later ]
HP OpenVMS Itanium
HP OpenVMS Alpha

Symptoms


The following error is reported when trying to launch the RUNINSTALLER script for the
10.2.0.4 Patchset on OpenVMS:

      $@ORA10_DISK:[PATCH10]runInstaller.com
      ERROR: The DCL command procedure
      "ORA10_DISK:[PATCH10.install]ECO_CHECK_10GR1.COM" does not exist.
      RUNINSTALLER.COM is in the wrong location
      %RMS-E-FNF, file not found

Changes

Patch number 6810189 was downloaded from MyOraclesupport, transferred in binary mode to
the OpenVMS system and unzipped into a suitable directory.

The supplied Backup Save Set was restored using the following commands:

      $ SET DEFAULT ORA10_DISK:[PATCH10]
      $ backup /log PATCHSET_10204_AXP.BCK;1 /SAVE_SET [] /NEW /OWNER=PARENT

Note that the above reflects the patch for an Alpha/AXP system, however, the same issue exists for Itanium/IA64 systems.
