We are currently attempting to upgrade WebLogic Portal Server in development environment and having problems when i run the installer. ( WLS1035_upgrade_generic.jar ).
I'm attempting this upgrade in Windows 7 professional environment ( 64 bit ) and it is a Windows VM with in a MAC OS X.
Problem : At the screen where it asks to Choose Middleware Home Type ---> click next ---> it shows error message saying Product is not Installed.
Environment : Upgrade of WebLogic 10.0 MP1 portal server ( JDK 1.5_30 ) on a Windows Virtual Machine running using Parallels Desktop software
Existing attempts :
I went through the forums and tried
- Oracle's Minimum Technical Requirements says that i need to have JDK 1.6_24 and have installed JDK 1.6.0_35. ( jdk-6u35-windows-x64.exe ) .
I'm currently running the setup from command prompt using this version of Java.
- Tried using BEA WebLogic smart upgrade. But it is not recognising our Oracle Support Login credentials. I tried doing this in offline mode having the above .jar and .zip file patch in the correct directory but its not recognising.
Weblogic home directory is c:\bea and it has got all the directories inside it - i don't understand the reason why installer is not able to identify the existing WLS installation.
I would appreciate help around this as i'm not sure what else to try ?
I am not sure what you are doing is supported. You cannot upgrade a 10.0 to a 10.3.5 the way you are trying. The updater may be used to upgrade froma 10.3.x to 10.3.5 i believe. Check this out Upgrading WebLogic Server 9.x or 10.0 Application Environments to 10.3.5
