    upgrade server but same oracle version

    Hi,

    Just want to clear my head on this one.

    I want to upgrade server from solaris8 to solaris10. Oracle version will be the same - 9i. Can I just copy all oracle datafiles from sol8 server to sol10 server and start db as normal? filesystem and block size are the same on both servers except for OS version.

    Thanks.

    you need to make sure of below things.

    1. Mount points are same in both the servers
    2. Copied the binaries from the existing server to new server and relinked
    3. Enough physical memory is available in the new server

    Shut down DB normally, copy all CRD files, archive logs, parameter file to the new server and start the DB in nomount -> mount -> open.

    Thanks,

    Try hard to get what you like OR you will be forced to like what you get.

    Hi,

    Thanks for replying. And yes the mount point and directories structure are all the same. Plenty of memory on a new server.

    When you said relinked, what do you mean by that? How do you relink?

    Thanks.

    after copying the binaries from existing server to new server, execute the below command in the new server.

    $ORACLE_HOME/bin/relink all

    read some documents about how to relink before executing.

    Thanks,
