Re: Taking Binary backup while instance is running

does the environment variable points to proper oracle home..
it sounds like you also had changed oracle home, if so then is the new
tnsnames ora points to correct databases with new home(check new
listener.ora) and did you checked the connectivity from any client with a
query not just with tnsping

from where these ETL jobs are fired are they dba jobs..
after patching did you comipled all the objects and further are there any
database links being used, are these links valid

thanks..subodh
