UNIX Oracle Upgrade 10 to 11

Current Environment: SAP Dev System Oracle Version 10, UNIX HP v11

I am trying to upgrade the Oracle Database from 10 to 11.3, when I run the OUI it cancels or errors out at the following step i.e. Provide Previliged user groups. I know I have to select the default entries provided but when I select that it fails.

Also when I change the default entries it still fails.

I have checked the groups i.e. DBA and OPER.

I have changed the entries in /etc/group file and edited using Vi editor and added ora<SID> in group file under dba group, after reading the SCN blogs.

Can some one help this I cannot move past this step.

Help is appreciated.

    Folks I ran the ./RUNINSTALLER_CHECK in /oracle/stage/11203/database/SAP and the following things have failed and are not fixable,

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    1. User Existance - oraecd Status - Failed Fixable - No
    2. Group Existance - dba Status - Failed Fixable - No
    3. Group Membership - dba Status - Failed Fixable - No
    4. Run Level Status - Failed Fixable - No
    5. Architecture Status - Failed Fixable - No
    6. OS Kernel Version Status - Failed Fixable - No
    7. OS Kernel Parameter - maxfiles_lim Status - Failed Fixable - No
    8. USers with Same UID Status - Failed Fixable - No


    Then there are a list of PH* patches which have a warning status and are fixable/nonfixable.

    I do not understand I am installing the Oracle with the oraecd user and it does belong to group dba as I have used the vi editor to change the settings in the /etc/group file.

    id ora<sid>

    uid=110(ora<sid>) gid=108(dba)

    id <sid>adm

    uid=109(<sid>adm) gid=107(sapsys)

    Following are a few line from the group file:

    sapinst::106:<sid>adm,ora<sid>,root

    sapsys::107:<sid>adm,ora<sid>,root

    dba::108:<sid>adm,ora<sid>,root

    oper::109:<sid>adm,ora<sid>

    I Have ran the RUNFIXUP.SH script but the errors still remain.

    Help is appreciated
