I'm currently planining on upgrading from 3,3 to 3,4 in next week and i have requested rel 3.4 from PTC to reveal the download from the site. But now a lot of different files shows at ptc appearently for upgrading orcale (R9IR2 ORACLE 188.8.131.52.0)
Do i have to use all that stuff also??
I just expected to get the 3.4 CD put it in the server and then smoothly running the upgrade (after creating dumpfiles etc.)
Several people has asked me for the status and how it did work.
I have gotten some good advice from Ian Cameron and Andrew Yap - Thanks for that.
Due to the higher hardware demands for the server - min.rec. ram 1gb exclusively for Ilink have made us postpone the update to 3,4 a bit our server is not dedicated to Illink alone and i need some funding first
We will upgrade from Proe2001 to Wildfire2 as scheduled on wednesday next week since 3,4 is not needed but only performs better.
The procedure apears to be quite straight forward as the "howto" from PTC apears to be good (assuming it is correct) but somewhat time-consuming because you have to reinstall / migrate etc. I'm mostly worried about the status on our replication after the install - hopefully this works. I going to be killed if i have to re-replicate the commonspace.
Best regards, Niels
------- Andrew Yap ---------- Before you can even upgrade your Ilink 3.3, you will need to install/upgrade oracle to 9i plus the oracle 9i patches. Read the hardware notes. There are also OS patches needed for unix OS like solaris etc. There are several CDs. One CD is called "Installation Asssitant" that I used to help me get thru the installation.
-------- Ian Cameron PTC has basically unbundled Oracle, ie no more one disk install... You will have to migrate your DB because you are moving between Oracle versions not just patching an existing install.
