I think the database is started from 10g home only even after setting variables.
Even after setting these variables when i do sqlplus it is going to 10g.
export ORACLE_HOME=/oracle/ora11203 export PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/bin:$PATH export ORACLE_SID=OMIGTEST export TNS_ADMIN=$ORACLE_HOME/network/admin export ORACLE_BASE=/oracle/ora11203/app/ora11203 export CLASSPATH=/oracle/ora11203/jdbc/lib/ojdbc5.jar:/opt/java6/jre/lib:/opt/java6/jre/lib/jsse.jar
How do i resolve this?

if you run:
it should show you the 10g home (because it is still in the path).
setting the PATH is not so straightforward (the apply is not so immediate).
you can either:
set the PATH in you .bash_profile
create a file X.env with your exports, and then running
./sqlplus / as sysdba
this will work.
but you still need to uncomment the control_files line.

try setting your vars on the bash_profile, or use the file method and . <file>.
other than that, enter the bin directory for the new home, and run ./sqlplus / as sysdba
this last one, has to work (even though not be best answer).
usually, if I have more than one OH, I create different files with the right exports, and then set the envs:
if the oraenv file is not working for missing data in /etc/oratab.
this works for me.
the files have:

Do i copy control file from 10g home and place in in 11g path and mention it in init.ora before upgrade? Thanks
Your control file location does not change,
In summary you need to do:
1) Copy pfile from 10g to 11g home
and other post upgrade steps as per metalink note : Complete Checklist for Manual Upgrades to 11gR2 [ID 837570.1]
You can try dbua its quite simple:
1)Take backup of 10g database.
2) export ORACLE_HOME to 11g home
type dbua----it should pick form 11g home
dbua -silent -sid <SIDNAME>
Pl post OS details
You have these two definitions mixed-up - they should be switched - ORACLE_HOME is always a subdirectory under ORACLE_BASE. not the other way around
