Oracle 11g R2 “ORACLE_BASE not set in environment” It is recommended


The following error was reported in the alert log during instance startup after recovering from a pmon crash in a RAC environment.

ORACLE_BASE not set in environment. It is recommended
that ORACLE_BASE be set in the environment

ALTER DATABASE MOUNT /* db agent */

Solution:

srvctl setenv database -d AZKKDB -t “ORACLE_BASE=/u01/app/oracle”

Once that was executed, I bounced this particular instance using:

srvctl stop instance -d AZKKDB -i AZKKDB2
srvctl start instance -d AZKKDB -i AZKKDB2

Resolved the issue
