Using DBUA to upgrade

I am trying to upgrade a 9i database to 10g on an IBM-AIX platform. While using the DBUA utility, I was informed that it could not create the SYSAUX tablespace even though there was a ton of space. Has anyone had any success in using DBUA to do an upgrade?

I am trying to upgrade a 9i database to 10g on an IBM-AIX platform. While using the DBUA utility, I was informed that it could not create the SYSAUX tablespace even though there was a ton of space. I called Oracle and was told to create it manually. I did that, re-ran DBUA and was told that SYSAUX already existed, and I checked off all the right boxes. Has anyone had any success in using DBUA to do an upgrade? By the way, Oracle is saying that there is currently no solution. Is that right?
This is documented as a bug in Oracle 10g release 1. It is reported as corrected in Oracle 10g release 2. The bug reported shows exactly the same results as you had with the DBUA reporting that there was insufficient space even though that was not the case.
