Upgrade MSS portal database from Oracle 9.2.0.6 to 11g

Hello

The environment I am describing is 32 bit Windows.

Our SAP Portal system is still running Oracle 9.2.0.6. I need to get this upgraded to 11g & I'm not clear which is the best route to follow to do this.

I have seen documentation which says that a direct upgrade from as old as 9.2.0.4 to 11g is supported but other documentation seems to imply that the earliest which is supported is 9.2.0.8.

I have also recently upgraded on Widnows from 10.2.0.1 to 11g & discovered that I needed to go to 10.2.0.2 before I could move to 11g - this wasn't in any documentation I saw until the error occurred & I searched explicitly for a solution.

Does anyone have experience of this & can you offer any advice?

The database on our portal system is , as far as I understand it, only used to hold user information.

Any advice appreciated.

Thanks, Chris

    Hi Chris

    For the versions of Oracle DB , which you can directly go to Oracle 11G , in 9i , it needs to be minimum 9.2.0.8 and in oracle 10g R2 , it needs to be 10.2.0.2 ...

    Please see the following oracle documentation which is detailing about the steps and options for the upgrade - mainly DBUA , manual steps and also the export import facility .

    Preparing to Upgrade Oracle Database

    Export / Import using the Oracle Data Pump is generally recommended for 10g databases which are being migrated to 11g.

    Thanks

    Do an Oracle patching first (to 9.2.0.8) and then do a inplace upgrade.

    It is faster than exp/imp.
