    Hi all,
    I was putting the ORACLE 7.3.3.6 on my ORACLE 7.3.3 database, but it is required that I put in the patch for Bug 604804. After I had put in the Bug 604804 patch, I went on to restart the database which the notes I was following did not suggest. However I did and when I tried running the ORAINST and selected the options to upgrade the software and stuff, it bums out with a message the ORACLE 7.3.3.6 patch can only be applied to ORACLE SERVER 7.3.3.0.0.. When I restarted the database and select the version of ORACLE, I noticed it had increase to ORACLE 7.3.3.5.1 and I do not know how, when, why that happened. As it turns out I am now unable to upgrade to ORACLE 7.3.3.6.. What should I do now????

    Questions:
    How do I restore the ORACLE SERVER back to ORACLE 7.3.3 so that I can do the upgrade to 7.3.3.6???

    How can I avoid data loss as this is our production database and the last backup was yesterday evening???

    It is possible that I might have relinked the executables and caused the ORACLE Server version to increase??

    Please help... I have to rectify this problem as soon as possible

    Thanks and God Bless,
    Mee.

    Taking back an applied patch is not possible(unless you have taken care of the files changed/added to oracle software in advance).

    If possible, how about re-installing 7.3.3.0 after taking a offline backup(ensures no data loss)?
