I am installing 8.1.7 on an HPUX box which has 8.1.6. Because of business requirments, I will have to run both version for a while upgrading the 8.1.6 databases to 8.1.7 when they become available.
My question is instead of having 2 listerners on different ports, can I point the 8.1.6 databses to use the 8.1.7 listerner and shutdown the the 8.1.6 listerner before the databases are upgraded to 8.1.7
Yes you can use the 8.1.7 listener for the 8.1.6 databases, just add them to the necessary .ora files and you should be fine.
