File system in oracle 10g2

We installed solution manager 7.0 with oracle 10g2. We have file system like this:

/oracle/<SID>/102_64

/oracle/stage/102_64

/oracle/client/10x_64

Now, Team moving to 11g2 oracle. Our team changes file system to:

/oracle/<SID>/112_64

/oracle/stage/112_64

/oracle/client/11x_64

My Query is why is it necessary to change naming of file system according to ORACLE version

    Hi Sumit,

    It's the best practice to name the file systems as per SAP recommendations. So the seggreation of the files will be proper and it will easy for the administrations.

    You are old Oracle Home is set to /oracle/SID/102_64 .. Now when you are doing the migration, You need to instal the Oracle Home for 11g in separate place.. so its better to instal the binaries in /oracle/SID/112_64 ....

    You can always the software where you want.. But its better to name the file system structure as per SAP recommendations to avoid the side effects and ease of administrations.

    Thanks,

      Hi,

      As Jagadish has already mentioned SAP recommends to have different directories which are synonymous to the version installed. I am not sure if you want to go against SAP's recommendations. Also ofcourse its more logical to have 10g files in 102_64 directory and 11g in 112_64. Will avoid a lot of confusion as such.

    Hi Sumit,

    It is fairly simple. When you start with Oracle Upgrade process the first step is to install Oracle 11g software. Now you need to place this software at some location. At this point SAP is still running which means DB is up so you need 10x_64 file system. Oracle 11 gets installed under 11x_64.After the Oracle 11 software is installed you shutdown SAP/DB and actually perform the upgrade. Once the upgrade is done you can retain old Oracle home for some time while the system gets stable and then get rid of it. I hope this explains it.

    Regards.

    Ruchit.
