Oracle 8.1.7

Recently I downloaded Oracle 8i Enterprise Edition (64 bit) Release 3 (8.1.7) for HP-UX from Oracle Tecchnology Network. After installing the package it is showing the version as 8.1.7.0.0

How do I upgrade it to 8.1.7.3 (my user needs the exact version) ?



If you can't change it, enjoy it !!

Re: Oracle 8.1.7

You have to download 8.1.7 patchset 3 from Metalink or order it on CD, then apply it with the Oracle Installer.

The patch number of 8.1.7.3 for HP-UX 64bit is 2189751 and it's 306Mb

Re: Oracle 8.1.7

hi,

it is always recommended to install the latest available patch.

hence, in your case, it will be:
patch: 2376472
Description: 8.1.7.4 PATCH SET FOR ORACLE DATA SERVER
Last Updated: 17-MAY-2002
Size: 304M (319019230 bytes)

Also, make sure you go through the readme carefully before attempting the installation.

hope this helps!
Best Regards

and hit the submit button.

Download the Patchset:

Then apply the patchset when ready.

Re: Oracle 8.1.7

8.1.7.4 is current. I'm attaching a data migration doc. Either way the next steps are important.

But. You need to make sure the OS is okay.

March 2003 Patch set.

Java and required patches from http://www.hp.com/go/java

Oracle has a list of additional HP patches required at metalink.oracle.com Note:43507.1 details the patches.

This patch list is always out of date and you'll need to check itrc.hp.com for newer versions of the patches.

Now you are actually ready to install oracle and migrate data.
