Error: "Directory <path> is already used by SharePlex"
Error received when running splex_install while doing a fresh install or upgrade of an existing Shareplex installation:
"Please specify an existing user who has read privileges to the Oracle redo logs and will own the SharePlex product and variable-data directories. This user will be a SharePlex Administrator and placed in the spadmin group[oracle]: oracle
Adding groups to the system. Groups already Existing: spadmin spopr spview
Please specify the product directory location: /opt/shareplex
Directory /opt/shareplex is already used by SharePlex Please specify a new product directory location: /opt/shareplex920
Please specify the variable data directory location: /u203/vardir
Directory /u203/vardir is already used by SharePlex
The Shareplex.mark file has references of the SP_SYS_PRODIR and SP_SYS_VARDIR for an existing Shareplex installation.
When installing Shareplex as part of fresh install or upgrade, specify a new proddir and an existing vardir or a new one depending on whether it is an upgrade or a fresh install. Another step that needs to be performed is renaming of the file Shareplex.mark located in /var/adm/.splex directory prior to running of splex_install so that Shareplex does not inherit the values of proddir and vardir from this file, unless one is going to specify the proddir and vardir in the environment.
