Upgrade Oracle 8.1.5

Upgrade Oracle 8.1.5

Upgrade Oracle 8.1.5

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

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

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

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 profile
startup/stop scripts
- [Bring Oracle DOWN? Listener down?]
- Run U0801050.sql from Oracle_Home/rdbms/admin  [Run as system?] - Bring up Oracle and Listener

Please any information would be helpful. I'm going to do this tomorrow. Thanks again.
