PRD Down -Unable to start DB from startsap command


We accidently changed the permissions on /oracle/SID/ folder and

after that when we do "startsap" we are getting following error.

GPILPRD:gpradm 66> startsap

Checking GPR Database


Database is not available via R3trans

Running /usr/sap/GPR/SYS/exe/run/startdb

Trying to start GPR database ...

Log file: /home/gpradm/startdb.log

/usr/sap/GPR/SYS/exe/run/startdb: Terminating with error code 12

DB startup failed

The "R3trans -d" output trans.log with the message and

permissions of $ORACLE_HOME directory.

Furthermore , we are able to start the database by logging into SIDADM

user and database is in open state. However when we do startsap from

sidadm user we are facing mentioned issue.
