When applying an interim patch on a 19c ORACLE_HOME using "opatch apply" command, I get this error:
Prerequisite check "CheckActiveFilesAndExecutables" failed.
The details are:
Following active executables are not used by opatch process :
Following active executables are used by opatch process :
UtilSession failed: Prerequisite check "CheckActiveFilesAndExecutables" failed.

OPatch failed with error code 73
Oracle binary file is being used by a process or session. Which indicates that there are services under ORACLE_HOME are still up and running.
1- Make sure you properly shut down all Oracle services running from the ORACLE_HOME that is being patched.
2- Kill the processes that remain accessing ORACLE_HOME which will be patched:
Caution: fuser command will not show only the process accessing ORACLE_HOME but will show all processes accessing the filesystem from which ORACLE_HOME is running, i.e. if you have ORACLE Home and GRID Home running from same filesystem, below command will show all processes accessing both ORACLE_HOME and GRID_HOME.
# fuser -v -m $ORACLE_HOME
Then validate the list and kill the PIDs running from ORACLE_HOME.
