Upgrading Oracle Clusterware and ASM from 10.2.0.5 to 18.104.22.168 > http://spotdba.blogspot.in/2012/07/upgrading-oracle-clusterware-and-asm.html
Thank you for the links. But I had already read both of them, and I don't see any information in them relating to the question I asked.
It looks like everyone is off enjoying the weekend. I've postponed the upgrade, and I've opened an SR with Oracle.
I've tried it multiple ways, and what ends up happening is the upgraded grid stack doesn't come up properly. It probably has to do with a security issue between the old owner (oracle) and the new one (grid). I've confirmed that they are in the same groups. I'll keep at it and let you know what I find.
Btw, this is RHEL 5 x64.
What I'm trying to do is not supported because a restriction of an ASM to GI upgrade is that the current owner must perform the install, as stated by the documentation.
With Oracle Clusterware 11g release 1 and later releases, the same user that owned the Oracle Clusterware 10g software must perform the Oracle Clusterware 11g upgrade. Before the Oracle Database 11g release, either all Oracle software installations were owned by a single user, typically oracle, or Oracle Database software was owned by oracle, and Oracle Clusterware software was owned by a separate user, typically crs.
Since this is plainly stated as a restriction, I will need to use the current owner to perform the install. This thread is now resolved.
Whoops, that was me signed in from my other account. Anyway, this is indeed resolved now. Thanks for reading everyone.
