This CRS-6706 error is related with the rootcrs.sh -prepatch not run successfully before patching.  The user ran rootcrs.sh -unlock because rootcrs.sh -prepatch failed, and then applied the patch manually.

 

To solve this error, perform the following steps.

 

1.  Run the following command as the root user to complete the patching set up behind the scenes:

Run under #GI_HOME/bin directory.

[[email protected] bin]# ./clscfg -localpatch
clscfg: EXISTING configuration version 0 detected.
Creating OCR keys for user 'root', privgrp 'root'..
Operation successful.
[[email protected] bin]#

 

2.  Run the following command as the root user to lock the GI home:

Run under #GI_HOME/bin directory.

[[email protected] install]# ./rootcrs.sh -lock
