Problem during upgrade to Oracle 11g on AIX 61

Dears,

I'm facing a strange problem during the upgrade procedure to Oracle 11g on AIX 61.

The step "Software installation" fails without reason despite during the prerequisite check no items in status failed were found. All of them were successfull.

The runinstaller fails with this popup:

"[INS-10008] Session Initialization failed".

Into the log there are these entries:

"Preparing to launch Oracle Universal Installer from /oracle/stage/11202/tmp/OraInstall2011-06-21_06-28-21PM. Please wait ...Exception in thread "FileSystemPreferencesHook" java.lang.SecurityException: Could not lock User prefs. Lock file access denied.

. (FAILURE) - The software installation was not successful.

. (Oracle executable /oracle/SID/11202/bin/oracle does not exist).

. ACTION: Check the OUI installation log file."

.

. Performing post-installation clean up tasks ...

. (OK) - OUI output log file /oracle/SID/.11ginstall_11202.oui removed successfully.

. (OK) - OUI response file /oracle/SID/.11ginstall_11202.rsp removed successfully.

. Post-installation clean up tasks completed.

I updated the Oracle Installation Scripts as for note 1524205.

Any advise ?

    .SecurityException: Could not lock User prefs. Lock file access denied.

    maybe the file is in use...

    ,maybe you do not have proper authorization at OS level for this file.

    Is that file existing?

    Are you installing from NFS?
