Chrome and E-Business Suite

Dhananjay came to me today.  He said that his users were complaining about forms not launching after upgrading to the latest version of Chrome. On launching forms they got this error:

/dev60cgi/oracle forms engine Main was not found on this server

I recalled that Google Chrome team had announced that they would not support java going forward. Googling with keywords chrome java brought this page:

https://java.com/en/download/faq/chrome.xml#npapichrome

It states that:

opatch hangs on /sbin/fuser oracle

Pipu pinged me today about opatch hanging. The opatch log showed this:

[Apr 11, 2015 5:24:13 PM]    Start fuser command /sbin/fuser $ORACLE_HOME/bin/oracle at Sat Apr 11 17:24:13 EDT 2015

I had faced this issue once before, but was not able to recall what was the solution.  So I started fresh.

As oracle user:

/sbin/fuser $ORACLE_HOME/bin/oracle hung

As root user

/sbin/fuser $ORACLE_HOME/bin/oracle hung

As root user

lsof hung.

adoafmctl.sh hangs

Rajesh and Shahed called me about this error where after a reboot of the servers, adoafmctl.sh wouldn't start.  It gave errors like these:

The EBS Technology Codelevel Checker (available as Patch 17537119) needs to be run on the following nodes

I got this error while upgrading an R12.1.3 instance to R12.2.4, when I completed AD.C.Delta 5 patches with November 2014 bundle patches for AD.C and was in the process of applying TXK.C.Delta5 with November 2014 bundle patches for TXK.C :

cannot set user id: Resource temporarily unavailable or Fork: Retry: Resource Temporarily Unavailable

Amjad reported this error while trying to login to the server:

cannot set user id: Resource temporarily unavailable

In the past he had reported this error:

Fork: Retry: Resource Temporarily Unavailable

This is due to the fact that the user has run out of free stacks.  In OEL 6.x , the stack setting is not done in /etc/security/limits.conf but in the file:

/etc/security/limits.d/90-nproc.conf

The default content in the file is:
