Oracle upgrade from 8.1.5 to 8.1.7.4 on HPUX

Hi Ora oracles,
I'm going to upgrade my version of Oracle from 8.1.5 on HPUX 11.00 to HPUX 11.11 and 8.1.7.4.
Do you know if there is necessary to apply some OS patch to be able to correctly use the new Oracle version?
TIA,
Art

Hi

Latest QPK bundle should do the trick.

and those are:
QPK1100 March 2003 or
Goldbase11i June 2003

If you are upgrading HP-UX as well, finish that prior to upgrading Oracle.

And as I've seen suggested several times here on the forum, you might be better off cold installing 11i.

But

I've upgraded several servers without major problems.

..and you might look into Oracles bug: BUG:2444951
if having raw datafiles larger than 4GB as the database wouldn't start if thats the case.
