Oracle Grid Infrastructure on AIX: “0403-006 Execute permission denied.” during installation of binaries.

Problem description:

While installing Grid Infrastructure on AIX, you are receiving an error when Oracle Universal Installer starts to link the binaries. The OUI log file contains the error message “0403-006 Execute permission denied.”:

INFO: Exception thrown from action: make
Exception Name: MakefileException
Exception String: Error in invoking target 'sdo_on no_opts asm_on rac_on' of makefile '/u01/app/grid/11.2.0/grid/rdbms/lib/ins_rdbms.mk'. See '/u01/app/oraInventory/logs/installActions2011-03-12_11-32-45PM.log' for details.

INFO: make: 1254-004 The error code from the last command is 126.

Cause:
In this case the error message was quite misleading. The problem was not caused by a permission issue. It was introduced by another process using some space on the /tmp file system. Oracle Universal Installer was not able to allocate any further temporary space on the /tmp file system, because it was completely filled up and therefore raised above error message. Even if you would use the environment variables TMPDIR and TEMPDIR, OUI would still use /tmp for some tasks and 1GB of free space would not be enough.

Problem resolution:
Increase the free space on /tmp (2GB of total space should be fine) and press retry in the Oracle Universal Installer or cleanup and restart your installation if you have already cancelled it.
