Re: Upgrade from Oracle 8.1.7.0 to 8.1.7.4

According to the Oracle site
http://download-west.oracle.com/docs/pdf/A87478_02.pdf there are no new patches necessary from Release 3 to Release 4.

System requirements (kernel paramaters, os level, memory and patches) are part of the release notes found in the documentation section of http://otn.oracle.com/documentation/oracle8i.html

I have not applied any OS patches during the release level upgrade.Mostly only a version level upgrade would require.

It is not required.

Thanks

No OS level patch is required.

Re: Upgrade from Oracle 8.1.7.0 to 8.1.7.4

hi,

as long as you already have installed the required patches for 8.1.7.0, it should be okay to install that patchset 8.1.7.4.

i.e.
PHSS_21947 (ld(1) and linker tools cumulative patch)
PHNE_20316 (Cumulative STREAMS Patch)
PHKL_21392 (VxFS performance, hang, icache DPFs)
PHKL_22145 (signal, threads, spinlock, scheduler, IDS)
PHKL_22266 (LVM Cumulative Patch)

hope this helps!

regards
