Running CA Gen 8.5 mkdbs.bat for Oracle 11 fails at final link step relinking the database dll with this error:


MKDBS: Compiling the database dll modules

To avoid having to set the LIB environment variable to include the Oracle directory containing the orasql11.lib file (C:\app\product\11.2.0\client_1\precomp\lib\) the user had changed a line in mkdbs.bat to be the full path to orasql11.lib but had inadvertently included a double quote (")  at the end of that full path string i.e.

this line:

if "%iefdbms%" == "oracle11" echo orasql11.lib aecom85n.lib aeuexit85n.lib iefmbt85n.lib          >> aecdb.lnk

was changed to:

if "%iefdbms%" == "oracle11" echo C:\app\Administrator\product\11.2.0\client_1\precomp\lib\orasql11.lib" aecom85n.lib aeuexit85n.lib iefmbt85n.lib          >> aecdb.lnk


To resolve the problem remove the extra double quote (") from the end of the full path to orasql11.lib i.e.

if "%iefdbms%" == "oracle11" echo C:\app\Administrator\product\11.2.0\client_1\precomp\lib\orasql11.lib aecom85n.lib aeuexit85n.lib iefmbt85n.lib          >> aecdb.lnk

Alternatively do not modify mkdbs.bat and simply add C:\app\Administrator\product\11.2.0\client_1\precomp\lib\ to the LIB environment variable before running mkdbs.bat i.e.

set LIB=E:\app\Administrator\product\11.2.0\client_1\precomp\lib;%LIB%
