    Upgrade to Oracle Linux 6.4

    mseberg

      Hello;

       

      I have an Oracle database server running Red Hat Enterprise 5. I would like to move this to Oracle Linux 6.4. Currently the disks are as follows:

       

      fdisk -l

       

      Disk /dev/sda: 146.1 GB, 146163105792 bytes

      255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 17769 cylinders

      Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

       

        Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System

      /dev/sda1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux

      /dev/sda2 14 1058 8393962+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris

      /dev/sda3 1059 17769 134231107+ 83 Linux

       

      Disk /dev/sdb: 1374.3 GB, 1374390190080 bytes

      255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 167093 cylinders

      Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

       

        Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System

      /dev/sdb1 1 167093 1342174491 8e Linux LVM

       

       

      The second disk is ( LVM ) has all my Oracle files. The first disk is the OS and only has /etc/oraInst.loc and  /etc/oratab. I plan to drop the mount points on /dev/sda and rebuild the OS as a new install.

       

      My question what precautions should I take to preserve the LVM and use it as is after the OS install?
