On the database server node, as the owner of the Oracle RDBMS file system and database instance,

1. Run the $ORACLE_HOME/nls/data/old/cr9idata.pl script to create the $ORACLE_HOME/nls/data/9idata directory.

2. After creating the directory, make sure that the ORA_NLS10 environment variable is set to the full path of the 9idata directory whenever you enable the 11g Oracle home.

3. Verify there are files in 9idata directory.

4. Re-run autoconfig.
