Oracle Client OCI_102

Hi Basis Expert,

Recently we did oracle client (OCL11264.SAR) update for 11g database (11.2.0.2).

After updating the Oracle Client in System->Status->Database information it is showing as OCI_102 , 11.2.0.2 V1, default.

Please find the screen shot below

Also we checked LD_LIBRARY_PATH and it is pointing to 11x_64 instantclient

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/sap/SID/SYS/exe/run:/usr/sap/SID/SYS/exe/uc/sun_64:/oracle/client/11x_64/instantclient

From OS level we executed genezi -v and below is the result

:sidadm 38% genezi -v

Client Shared Library 64-bit - 11.2.0.2.0

System name: SunOS

Release: 5.10

Version: Generic_147440-26

Machine:sun4u

Operating in Instant Client mode.

Small timezone file = timezone_14.dat

Large timezone file = timezlrg_14.dat

We would like to know why in System->Status it is still reflecting as OCI_102 even after updating the client (11.2.0.2).

Appreciate your input.

Regards,

Anil Shenoy

    Hi Anil,

    Please check whether following symbolic links have been maintained.

    cd $ORACLE_HOME/lib

    ln –s libnnz11.so libnnz10.so ( AIX/ Liunx/Solaris)

    ln –s libnnz11.sl libnnz10.sl ( HPUX)

    After the client updated have you taken SAP restart ?

    Regards,

    Deepak Kori

    Don't worry, it's all ok. Your kernel is linked against DBMS client library OCI_102, therefore your kernel is using calls of version 10. That you see in your screen OCI_102, but instantclient versiob 11.2.0.2.
