Migration from oracle 8i to 9i

We have HP-UX 11.00 and oracle 8i. We are planning to go for oracle 9i. I want to know the prerequisites for the same. Letme know where the documentation regarding the same is available.

Awating forums valuable response.

HI Girish,

Did you not get the information you needed from your previous post?

http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=749881

If you need more help I think you will need to be more specific.

HTH,

Re: Migration from oracle 8i to 9i

Girish,
if you are going to use the ias side as well, in my opinion it is easier to go to 10g than ias with 9.
We have had problems with having to installs crashing and patch problems.
Once we decided to goto 10, clean install first time.
This is for the ias side of things, the databases are equally easy to install.

I know a lot of people are going to disagree, so this is only my personal view!

As far as I know Oracle10G is not certified for HPUX11.0.
10G requires HPUX11i

Re: Migration from oracle 8i to 9i

Your prior thread does seem to fully cover the topic.

I would note that 11.00 is approaching its end of life and eventually will not be supported. Its time to plan for the 11i v1 upgrade before
Oracle tells you the OS is not supported.

Bible of prerequisites for Oracle on Unix is there :
http://metalink.oracle.com/metalink/plsql/ml2_documents.showDocument?p_database_id=NOT&p_id=169706.1

Note that Oracle 9i is only available on 64bits HP-UX 11.

Hi Girish,

The above posts has the information that you are looking for. In addition you can also lokk into Metalink Note: 159657.1 with the tiltle â Complete Upgrade Checklist for Manual Upgrades from 8.X / 9.0.1 to Oracle9iâ

And if possible its prefered to upgrade to HP-UX 11i.

Re: Migration from oracle 8i to 9i

hi girish,

why don't you consider going to Oracle 10g directly instead?

There are many more features and bug fixes in 10g than in Oracle 9i...

Re: Migration from oracle 8i to 9i

Thanks U very much for your responses as of now.
I have some more details. As I already told you i am upgrading from 8i to 9i ( due to certain reasons i am not able to go for 10g ).
HPUX version is 11.0 (Again 11.23 is planned later and not allowed to do it now). Sorry for putting lot of constraints...but can't help it.

Find attached the Patching Status and the swlist output of my server.
Awaiting your valuable inputs.

Re: Migration from oracle 8i to 9i

I see a lot of patch, but no Quality Pack. You should install last one (available at http://www8.itrc.hp.com/service/patch/releaseIndexPage.do?BC=patch.breadcrumb.main| ). Note that it does require reboot.

Also OnlineJFS is very useful in everyday life. But it's not free...

Re: Migration from oracle 8i to 9i

Girish,

increase yourr shmmax value.
don't split the SGA across n segments !

What is the memory available on the server ?
What is the target size for the SGA ?
