Server Migration UX11.00 to UX11iV1 & Oracle 8.1.7

Hi everyone.

A site i am working at will be replacing its N4000 servers with new rp4440.

I presume that the migration will go like this?
=> Backup old servers N4000(11.0). OS/FS/DB
=> Export data on the N4000(11.0)
=> Connect SCSI disk system to rp4440
=> Create table space on new DB rp4440(11i).
=> Import the data.

I would like to ask, are there any specific patchs that we will need to apply to
Oracle 8.1.7 and HP-UX 11i ?

Alternativly, could we do the following?
=> Upgrade the N4000 to UX11i
=> Ignite the N4000 and restore it on the rp4440
=> Export the VG on N4000.
=> Reconfigure the disk system to connect to rp4440
=> Import VG on the rp4440


Thanks

Option 1 is better as it is not advisable to restore the ignite backup from N4000 to rp4440.

Check if following suits you:

1. Make ready the rp4440 having the Oracle file system size as big as N4000.
2. Take backup of Oracle file system from N4000 and restore the same on rp4440.
3. For patches check the following link:

I think you should upgrade the new server (rp4440) to HP-UX 11i and simply install Oracle 8.1.7.3 on it and apply database patches to get Oracle 8.1.7.4

You can do as Sanjay said (24 seconds before me!) and just copy the database files (*.dbf and *.ctl) and RDBMS files (all ORACLE_HOME) IF both servers have the same bit sizes (32 bits?). But after that You'll need to change the $ORACLE_HOME/network/admin/tnsnamse.ora file to point to the new server name...

The N4000 and rp4440-8 both have 64-bit processors and are only supported with the 64-bit version of 11i, so you should be 64-bit on both.

Another possible issue:

If you want to move to 64 bit oracle, you need to go through a word size conversion after you import the data into the new database.

Proceduer attached.
