Currently we are running the Oracle 220.127.116.11 Enterprise Edition database product, Oracle Reports Server 2.5 with Apache 2 (compiled independently).
We are not looking to add extra functionality, only a straight upgrade to 10g.
These upgrades will be done in-situ on single servers, i.e., there will be no staging servers used.
Can you advise us on what components of Oracle 10g and IAS we need to install as a minimum, as well as the best approach for upgrading? We have attempted this successfully last year on a test server but we imported an 8i DB to a 10g DB shell. We probably won't have that luxury on some 8i servers requiring the upgrade.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
