just feeling confuse from all the read up notes on upgrading from 22.214.171.124 - 126.96.36.199.
The part where it mention that on the target database, one have to:
1. download and install oracle 11g r2 in a new oracle home. and make sure there are no relinking errors.
My question here is,
- does it refer using the 11g r2 installer? and with that i install a new oracle binaries on a new Oracle home.
My confusion starts here:Ideally you should download and unzip all 7 files - but I believe for database only install, the first two zip files are sufficient.
i download the patchset which contain 7 separate files. If i am not wrong , 1of7 and 2of7 can be use as the ' full installation'? I don't really understand the README file.
If i am wrong about the patchset , then where does these files come to use during the upgrading process?Yes - pl see upgrade documentation - http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/server.112/e23633/toc.htm
2. the part where one invoke DBUA to upgrade the database is from the new oracle home /bin right?
I don't see anywhere on the upgrading process where these patchset i have downloaded to be use in any part.Pl also see these MOS Docs
