    Angry Upgrade OWB 10g to 11g from Windows to Linux


    I have Oracle 10.2 on windows with Oracle Warehouse Builder on the same machine. I want to upgarde it to Oracle 11.1 (both database and Warehouse Builder) on Linux. To make it mode clear:

    Current Setup on machine X
    Windows 2003
    Oracle 10.2
    Warehouse Builder 10.2

    New setup on machine X
    Oracle 11.1
    Warehouse Builder 11.1

    Since I am going to change the operating system of the machine from Windows to Linux, can somebody tell me how can I go about this process? I am very very new to OWB. How can I make sure I dont loose my OWB configuration. What is the best way?

    It was a surprised to learn you have OCP credentials - your question comes out as unexpected in such context.

    Project should be characterized as a migration rather than an upgrade - you do not upgrade when moving to a different Operating System, you migrate.

    May we know how big your database is?

    For a small to medium size database I would...

    1- Export - either exp or expdp current database.
    2- Pre Create new database.
    3- Import - either imp or impdp

    Plenty of documentation about this matter is in the net.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Looks like you didnt read my post properly. I am very new to OWB, not Oracle. My concern is not Oracle upgrade/migration. My concern is OWB migration/upgrade. I want to make sure that I dont loose any OWB configuration/repository. So if you can please provide me your views in this regard, if at all you know.

    Cool Migration it is

    Perhaps you could figure it out by reading the fine OracleŽ Warehouse Builder Installation and Administration Guide.
