Re: HP-UX Lock error


I found one thread reporting the same error. The root cause is NFS based. Look it over and get back.

Re: HP-UX Lock error

As asuggested above please check if ur DB is using any NFS file system and check for any permission issue.

ORA-27086: unable to lock file - already in use
Cause: the file is locked by another process, indicating that it is currently in use by a database instance.

Action: determine which database instance legitimately owns this file.

Check if you have shut the DB completely before.

More info required!!
