I tried to retore a 64 bit oracle install running on Solaris 9 from a tape backup.  The tar checked fine and untarred into the proper directories.  WHen I went into sql plus or rman i get the message ld.so.1 oracledwproddb fatal /u01/app/oracle/product/9.2.0.1.0/db/lib/libskgxn9.so:wron ELF class ELFCLASS64.
How do I fix it?

Did you uninstall Oracle 32 bit cleanly?
If there is any installation of other oracle products in between before you restore Oracle64 bit, you have to relink oracle executables, which is a painful, unworthy process

Otherwise, you need to reinstall Oracle 64 bits.

What kind of tape backup you have? Is it created with 64 or 32 bit?
I will be surprised if you can use 32 bits backups for 64 bit instance (I expect differences in the file formats).
So the working alternative is Export/Import.

This is different.  The Oracle was installed 64 bits.  It was shutdown and a .tar created.
The problem with the 32 bit Oracle on 64 bit linux is different on a different box.

Let me try to understand:

So you are using a tape backup from the machine installed with Oracle64 bit , try to restore to a brand new machine, to set up Oracle that way instead of install from the scratch?

is that what you try to do here?

No, you cannot do that. In Oracle install process, there is a lot of linking processes going on.

Maybe next time arount but No.  Essentially I am in a situation where the oracle server was wiped out.  I'm trying to restore the same oracle server on the same Solaris system it has always been on from a tape backup the systems people take nightly.

I've just decided to restore from the tar file and start all over which brings up a different opportunity.

I've decided to restore from an older .tar.  Possibly that was dated after I had messed things up trying to patch the 64 bit oracle with a 32 bit patch.  That brings up a different opportunity.
