Upgrading from Oracle 220.127.116.11 to 18.104.22.168 on Sun
How to upgrade an Oracle database from 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199 on Sun 5.8? Actually we have to add disk and some of the mount points into the server. Could you please let us know the complete steps to do so? Thanks in advance.
The Oracle9i Release 2 (9.2) Database Migration guide
provides information on a number of methods available for upgrading your database. The method you choose will depend on how large your database is, how long of an outage window you have to perform the migration, etc. Keep in mind that a solid back-out plan is very important in case the migration does not go well in the production environment.
I would recommend testing this migration several times in a non-production environment; be sure to involve the application support team members, as well as business users. Each time the migration is completed in the test environment, everyone involved should test application functionality, batch jobs, and other critical functions thoroughly.
