    11g: Grid and Oracle homes in 11.2 ?, or 11.2.0 ?, or 11.2.0.X... ?

    1007321

      Hi,

      I've installed the Grid Infrastructure and Oracle 11gR2 on our new

      machines respectively in

      /opt/oracle/app/gridHome/11.2.0

      /opt/oracle/app/ora11g/product/11.2.0/db_1

       

      A friend of mine told me I should have installed Oracle in

      /opt/oracle/app/ora11g/product/11.2.0.3/db_1

      (because I'm indeed in component rel. n° 3 of 11.2.0)

       

      I have 2 questions:

      1/ Do you guys have recommendations/advice regarding the location

      of your GI & Oracle binaries as to whether or not get down to the component

      version in your path ? What would you suggest me and why ?

       

      2/ I intend to upgrade to 11.2.0.4, but now I got a problem with the Grid

      installation: what should I do, create a new gridHome/11.2.0.4, or erase/upgrade

      the contents of my actual 11.2.0 ? What do you think ?

       

      In advance, thanks !

      Regards,

      Seb
