    Oracle apps 11 using 8i database

    Hello people,

    Can someone help me or enlighten me with these?

    I have an existing apps 11 using 8.0.5 database. I want to upgrade the existing database to 8i to use the partitioning option of it. I have read this "Interoperability Notes Oracle Applications Release 11.0 with Release 8.1.7 [ID 148902.1" showing how to upgrade the existing database to 8i. Is this the only way? Can I just export the 8.0.5 then import it on 8i?

    thanks

    A proper upgrade requires to upgrade.

    Provided you pre-create target database on Ora8i, yes - you can rely on exp/imp to move metadata, data and code; this is more of a migration rather than an upgrade.

    Is there any other things to consider or to be done after the export/import? If I will use the same database name do i need to configure it on the apps side?

    Thanks for the reply

    TNSNAMES.ora changes may be needed.
    Will DNS -or IP address- and port remain the same?

    IP and port will not changed. On the apps server, do I need to configure anything? Please check step below if its correct.
    1. Install Oracle 8i
    2. Create 8i database
    3. export oracle 8 database
    4. import oracle 8 to oracle 8i database
    5. what's next?

    thanks
