Error during installation phase when upgrading from oracle 10 to 11g


We have going to upgrade oracle to in SAP ECC 6.4(DB:oracle, OS:AIX6.1). By mistake I run RUNINSTALLER from wrong path oracle/stage/11203 /database instead of SAP gives some error message during installation but i continue to installation and installation is completed.

now i worried about error and and wrong path selection, i removed manually new oracle home folder 112_64 and continue to new installation from proper path but now i am getting below error when running RUNINSTALLER from SAP folder

"[INS-10008] Session Initialization failed".and log are  as

    ERROR)   -  Oracle Database software installation finished with errors.

    . The Oracle executable <OH>/bin/oracle is empty or does not exist.

    . Possible cause(s): link error, installation was cancelled or interrupted, or fatal error.

  1. . (INFO)    -  Fatal error occurred during installation

    Hi Pawan,

    If I see the error only and forget that you have done wrong or your failed attempts, my 1st reaction for this error is missing GCC rpms and lost links.

    Better you use file system and database backup to build it again and then upgrade oracle.

    Like I have said in the other thread you need to first delete the contents under /oracle/SID/11203 and start the installation as described in the Oracle upgrade guide.
