    if it is Solaris ,Great then
    First check the permissions of the file
    $ORACLE_HOME/bin/oracle
    they should be 4751 by oracle_owner
    login as oracle_owner and do
    chmod 4751 $ORACLE_HOME/bin/oracle
    for all other files you should have execute permssion

    Then try your operations like shutdown abort etc

    If not successful then do the following

    --------------------------------------------


    You kill all the oracle processes using kill -9 command

    Since oracle uses shared memory concept to create SGA's

    you have to remove them using ipcrm command(check with local expert).

    to identify shared memory keys use the following command

    ipcs -amp|grep

    the output will be as follows

    m 5373972 0x66ee288c --rw-rw---- oracle dba oracle dba 11 9
    9721216 145808 47772 11:13:24 11:13:24 0:11:33

    use the second argument in ipcrm

    ipcrm -m 5373972

    When it is successful you have removed shared memory areas

    after you do this then try once again,

    Let us know the status anyway



    GOOD LUCK

    Are your databases UP???when the bin directory was removed

    If any oracle processes were running while the bin was removed follow the above steps

    You can get rid of sqlplus error by exporting LIBPATH

    export LIBPATH=$ORACLE_HOME/sqlplus/lib:$ORACLE_HOME/lib:/usr/lib:/lib .Then atleast you won't get the error
