ORA-15180: could not open dynamic library odm library, error [open]

Posted by appsdba11i on October 16, 2011

Hi Folks

Recently we cloned Test from PROD and when we trying to startup a DB from control file we got this error.

===========================================================================================
Enter user-name: / as sysdba
Connected to an idle instance.

SQL> @Test_control.sql
ORA-15180: could not open dynamic library odm library, error [open]
ERROR:
ORA-03114: not connected to ORACLE

============================================================================================

Cause/ Issue Identification

The customer is trying to create a database using DBCA/Backup control file, but startup nomount fails with:
SQL> ORA-15180: Could not open dynamic library odm libraryump, error [ld.so.1: oracle: fatal:/logicie]

Go to $ORACLE_HOME/lib

ls -lrt libodm&&*

Replace with 10 or 11 as per the database version. In My Case it is 11g

-bash-3.2$ ls -lrt libodm11*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 ortestdb dbtestdb 7442 Aug 15 2009 libodm11.a
lrwxrwxrwx 1 ortestdb dbtestdb 45 Oct 14 21:18 libodm11.so -> /proddb/oracle/product/112/lib/libnfsodm11.so

Soft Link is Missing/pointing to source Node

Solution/Action Plan
=======================
go to $ORACLE_HOME/lib and recreate soft link per libodm11.so as below

rm -rf libodm11.so
ln -s $ORACLE_HOME/lib/libnfsodm11.so

It should look like this after above commands.

-bash-3.2$ ls -lrt libodm11*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 ortestdb dbtestdb 7442 Aug 15 2009 libodm11.a
lrwxrwxrwx 1 ortestdb dbtestdb 45 Oct 14 26:18 libodm11.so -> /testdb/oracle/product/112/lib/libnfsodm11.so

Reference/Useful notes:
========================
