Last updated on APRIL 30, 2018

Applies to:

Siebel CRM - Version 8.2.1 SIA[22220] and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Upgrep process is failing during ddlimp process execution, because Oracle database client timed-out and returned error "ORA-00054: resource busy and acquire with NOWAIT specified or timeout expired".

This was noticed in the traces from the upgwiz.log and ddlctl_indx1.log

  During the current upgrade attempt, the Oracle database client timed-out while processing the S_EVT_ACT table, during index creation.

   Notice that it was taking longer, and longer to create the indexes, until the error was returned...

This trace clearly indicates the issue that occurred during the upgrade process:
