I was trying to install Oracle 10gR2/11gR1 on a AIX 6100-05 box, which was LPAR created on an IBM BLADE.
Started getting following error
Query Exception: RunningProcessException
Query Exception Class: class oracle.sysman.oii.oiil.OiilQueryException
Oracle Universal Installer has detected that there are processes running in the currently selected Oracle Home.
The following processes need to be shutdown before continuing:
This silent installation was unsuccessful.
I’ve done similar install many times on other AIX setups, but never seen this problem before. So the checked metalink, if this is a known issue.
This was a Bug # 3823729 in 10gR1, which use to fail for some Java related processes (described in document ID 975597.1).
Solution is to rename existing fuser file (fuser command somehow returns wrong information to the installer, which we need to disable).
mv fuser fuser.orig
chmod +x /usr/sbin/fuser
Applied same fix in this case, it worked.
Restore the original fuser binary, after installation.
