I want to upgrade my Oracle database version 9.2.0.1.0 to version 9.2.0.4. Please tell me the procedure to apply the patches.

Instead of applying the 9.2.0.4 patchset, you might want to consider applying the latest patchset which currently is 9.2.0.7. In any case, the basic steps for applying the Oracle 9.2.0.4 patchset are:

  • Download the patch from Oracle's Metalink Web site.
  • UnTAR it on the database server.
  • Shut down all databases using the Oracle9i home.
  • Apply the patchset to the Oracle binaries.
  • Start up all databases using the Oracle9i home and run required SQL scripts within each database.

The step-by-step instructions are quite detailed and beyond the scope of this forum, but when you download the Oracle 9.2.0.4 patchset from Metalink, a README file with instructions for installing the patch is included. Ensure you have an appropriate back-out plan in place just in case the patch fails. This includes having an appropriate backup of all your databases, as well as the Oracle software and inventory.
