How does one relink the Oracle Server executables?


It is sometimes necessary to relink the Oracle binaries which are nothing but Oracle executable files. There are number of cases where the solution given by Oracle Support is relinking.

Enter the following Unix/Linux commands to relink:

cd $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/lib
make -f install

From Oracle 8i one can also use the "relink" command in the $ORACLE_HOME/bin directory.

To relink everyting:

$ORACLE_HOME/bin/relink all

Or, to just relink "oracle":

$ORACLE_HOME/bin/relink oracle
