03113 end-of-file on communication channel | Oracle 11g Upgrade

Hi,

Whilst upgrading our DEV system from 10.2.0.4 to 11.2.0.1 using DBUA

with a powershell script , the upgraded failed with the error "ORA-

03113 end-of-file on communication channel" during the "Upgrading

Oracle Server" section.

The oracle 11g service is created but it cannot start.

The oradim.log reports

03113 end-of-file on communication channel also.

The alert log just show the database tries to start and reports the parameters from the pfile it's using but then stops without any error message.

All the pre-upgrade tasks are done and there was no errors. This is on Windows 64bit 2003.

The server is vmware , not sure if this could be an issue.

It was possible to roll back using the dbua script and bring the system back up with 10g.

Anyone come across a similar issue ?

Thanks

Jim

    ORA-3113 are well known output from a connection to database lost of a reason.

    Oracle says this reconnect and try again as solution.

    If you got the same error on the same place /job, investigate the script/job.

    Hi,

    Before executing DBUA, you must shutdown the database instance manually at Database level. Then next step is to check the database instance status in service command.

    Thanks and Regards

      Found error. There is a bug in one of the patches. Trying to identify which patch at the moment.

      Either Patch 8 or one of the generic patches released on 14/12/10
