Highly unlikely that the O/S thinks file ownership is in flux. But from what you've posted the dots do not connect.

The error message you typed, not copied (obvious from the misspelling) gives no indication of why you think anything relates to file 10 or what it is you think is file 10. Hopefully you don't think AIX is reading the file# from file$.

The error is an operating system error, not an Oracle error. And the
last time I worked with AIX files had names ... not numbers. Please
connect the dots with cut-and-paste not your interpretation. Perhaps
then we can help you.
