10gR2 Upgrade problem

I installed 10.2.0.1 on HP-UX 11.11 into a new Oracle Home. Also have 9.2.0.6 running on same server. Ran DBCA to create a test instance. Downloaded 10.2.0.2 upgrade patch p4547817_10202_HP64. Problem. Upgrade OUI does not present the "Specify File Locations" screen. First screen ask for oraInventory path. If given the path it errors out with "Inventory already exist".

Re: 10gR2 Upgrade problem

Shalom,

Few possibilities.

1) Your environment when you start the upgrade gui is wrong, and ORACLE_HOME or other required variables is incorrect.

2) The patch set itself is broken.

3) Permissions problem on the directory path you are tyring to work with.

Re: 10gR2 Upgrade problem

Hi,
Following are the steps i will suggest for 9i to 10gr2 upgrade.
1) execute utlu102i.sql in 9i database.
2) recompile all the objects which are invalid using utlrp.sql
3)shutdown the 9i database.
4)Restore it to a new server where 10GR2 is installed.
5) issue startup upgrade.
6) create sysaux tablespace.
7) issue u0902000.sql script to upgrade.
8) run catupgrd.sql
9) run utlu102s.sql TEXT to find the upgraded components.
10) run utlrp.sql

Done u have upgraded ur database.
