3197396 - Brconnect fails with "error while loading shared libraries:"


brconnect commands like below ones are failing with error shown:

sidadm> brconnect -u / -c -f check

sidadm> brconnect -u -c -f dbstate -RDB

brconnect: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

The ldd command shows that the file can be found in a client library:

sidadm> ldd brconnect

... => /oracle/client/11x_64/instantclient/ (0x00007f5b31df7000)


... => /oracle/client/19/instantclient/ (0x00007f1882b6f000)


The LD_LIBRARY_PATH contains and points to the client directory:

sidadm> echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH


sidadm> echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH

where the 11x_64 is a link to the 19x directory:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 sidadm sapsys 3 Apr 27 17:07 11x_64 -> 19x
