there is only one grid infrastructure. There is no difference in the GI stack between EE and SE.
So for GI there is nothing special which needs to be done.
However for RAC (the database software installed later) that is different. There is RAC EE software and RAC SE software.
If you had installed RAC EE software and created a database with EE, then there is no downgrade option.
Only possibility is to export the user data (no full export, as this will export EE tables as well), and then install RAC SE software, create a new database and import.
Thanks a lot for replying.
The possibility you mentioned is clear to me..I mean the logic or process is clear.
I am still in little doubt. Can I upgrade 18.104.22.168 EE GI to 22.214.171.124 SE? I have googled it, and do not find that kind of option while upgrade like upgrade to SE,etc. Also, if we talk about fresh installation, does GI also comes with EE and SE versions? Again, In all the snapshots in different blogs, I do not see any option to choose like EE,SE or Personal Edition GI, OR the GI zip file to download is itself different for SE and EE versions.
Can I upgrade 126.96.36.199 EE GI to 188.8.131.52 SE?No ,EE and SE available at database level.
does GI also comes with EE and SE versions? Again, In all the snapshots in different blogs, I do not see any option to choose like EE,SE or Personal Edition GI, OR >the GI zip file to download is itself different for SE and EE versions.No ,it same edition ,no differece of EE or SE in GI.
these edition you have to choose during database installation.

Thank you Sebastian and Kuljeet,
Database I have to upgrade in coming 2-3 months to 11g. Right now, I an only concerned about GI.
What I got from your replies is that I can happily upgrade GI 184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11 and GI always comes in EE, isn't it ? It means that has nothing to do with the DB license. I mean of couse there is a license but it should not say anthing about GI version (EE or SE)
Thanks DB is SE yes, but I am not gonna touch that at the moment. That is already SE edition, so there is no point of downgrading that.
Hallo Herr Solbach,
You said in your very first post:
Only possibility is to export the user data (no full export, as this will export EE tables as well), and then install RAC SE software, create a new database and import.Can I ask what do you mean by RAC SOFTWARE? Do you mean Grid Infrastructure? If yes, then you and Kuljeet singh told me that there is nothing like EE OR SE version regarding GI. It is simply a S/w used for all RAC environment.
Thanks and regards.
was a little inaccurate.
With RAC Software I meant the database software installation with RAC option. Not the GI.
RAC specifies Real Application Cluster and is always the database part.
GI is not RAC (though you need it for RAC). But you can/may use the GI without RAC (e.g. for classic failover clustering, no database installation needed).
