Upgrade Oracle 8.1.5 Upgrade Oracle 8.1.5 cfagan (MIS) (OP) 2 Oct 00 18:22 What are the specific steps to upgrade from Oracle 8.1.5 to 8.1.6? Do I just need a new Oracle home then install? Thanks for the help. RE: Upgrade Oracle 8.1.5 carp (MIS) 2 Oct 00 23:26 Check in the installation manual and release notes. You will find a checklist with the steps for upgrading. From 8.1.5 to 8.1.6 should be pretty simple - possibly as simple as running one script from the installation media. RE: Upgrade Oracle 8.1.5 carp (MIS) 2 Oct 00 23:27 Forgot to mention - be sure to take a full offline backup of your database before trying to upgrade it. That way you can go back to square one if something goes wrong! RE: Upgrade Oracle 8.1.5 cfagan (MIS) (OP) 3 Oct 00 19:30 Sorry for all the questions but I'm a new DBA and can't find anything regarding this. Documentation is on the CD and I've looked at all. I can't believe that I can't find anything on this. Listed below are the steps I've identified. Please let me know if I'm missing anything. - Create new Oracle Home- Update any reference to Oracle in Oracle user profileoratablistener.orastartup/stop scriptsinit.ora- [Bring Oracle DOWN? Listener down?]- Run U0801050.sql from Oracle_Home/rdbms/admin [Run as system?] - Bring up Oracle and ListenerPlease any information would be helpful. I'm going to do this tomorrow. Thanks again.
