    Oracle 64 bits - Database 32 bits ?

    949150
      Hi! I installed Oracle Database 10g (10.2.0.10) x64 on Windows Server 2008 R2 (x64). After 3-4 weeks I observed that my database is installed on 32bits. How's possible and why? Is it possible to convert it to 64 bits?
      I have a lot of data which is in use by my company employees and I don't want to reinstall Oracle again. Pleas help me!
      Thanks!

      Daniel.

          I'm not sure why you'd care but if you do ... you need to do a full uninstall followed by a full reinstall.

          And if you have data ... back it up well.

            if its manadtray to you to install 10g , you have to apply 10.2.0.5 patch to be certified other wise go to 11gR2
