How to upgrade oracle 32 to 64 bit on sun solaris x86 64 bit OS?

I want to upgrade/convert 32 bit Oracle Database to 64 bit database. Existing 32 bit database is RAC and it is running on Sun Solaris X86 64 bit OS.
First, I want to know is it possible?
If yes, then what are the exact steps?

Such a migration can be done, just follow the steps in Metalink note 62290.1
It is important to remember that 64-bit database requires more shared pool memory so you should increase your shared pool size.

  • How to upgrade Oracle iFS 9.0.1 to  Oracle Collaboration 10G ?

    Dear experts,
    I am looking a way to upgrade 9iFS 9.0.1 to the recent Content Management service(CMS) of Oracle Collaboration Suite 10G (10.1.2).
    Can someone tell me how to do this?
    I read the Oracle Collaboration Suite 10G installation guide, it indicated that the upgrade path from Collaboration, or to 10.1.2 are supported.
    I also read the CMS installation guide fro CMS 9.0.3, and 9.0.4,, they indictae that indicated that upgrade from iFS 9.01. to CMS 9.0.3, CMS 9.0.4 or CMS are supported.
    But I couldn't fins information about how to upgrade Oracle 9iFS or CMS to Oracle Files (Collbaoration Suite 9i R1) 9.0.3 or R2 (9.0.4).
    My questions are
    1. Is Oracle Files 9.0.3 same as CMS 9.0.3?
    2. If they are different, How Can I upgrade 9iFS 9.0.1 to Oracle Files 9.0.3? so I can continue to upgrade to OCS 10g R2?
    Any suggestions are appreciated.
    I have been looking the OTN, but I couldn't find a document about upgrade from

    I think you should contact ORacle support on that point.

    Installation Guides should be clear enough, if read. Also read Release Notes for additional support/unsupport info.
    However the Installation Guide for Database Client adds:
    "Note: Oracle provides 32-bit (Windows x86) and 64-bit (Windows x64) versions of Oracle Database Client. _Oracle certifies 32-bit Oracle Database Client on Windows x64_." (underline added)

    Thank you

    It is because of UNIX shell. I also faced this error during installation.
    First check your shell by the following command.
    $ echo $SHELL
    Then select the below.
    For csh shell
    $ setenv DISPLAY
    $ export DISPLAY
    For sh,ksh and bash
    $ DISPLAY=
    $ export DISPLAY
    After you do this check the value of DISPLAY variable.
    $ echo $DISPLAY
    If the DISPLAY variable is set then run ./runInstaller.
    One advice: Keep a complete log of your terminal session. This will help you in future :)

  • How to upgade Oracle from 9.2 on SUN to Oracle 10g R2 RAC on Oracle EL4

    Hi all,
    I have production database Oracle 9i EE Release - 64bit on SunOS 5.9 cca 100GB. I would like to upgrade Oracle 10g Relase2 RAC with 2 nodes on Oracle Enterprise Linux. Database availability is 24x7 and system breakdown must be minimal. Upgrade could be done in several independent steps. What is the best form of upgrade realisation?
    Thx for some idea

    [email protected]

    My 2 cents:
    1. de-RAC 9i on solaris
    2. upgrade to 10g on solaris (why? take advantage of datapump, much faster than exp/imp)
    3. expdp from 10g solaris
    4. create single instance 10g on linux
    5. impdp on linux
    Please note there are a number of issues with 9ir2.10gr2 upgrade (check metalink for details).

    This will not work. We have not built the native libraries to work with

    Go to and select the "Download" option.
    From the resulting page, use the "Select Utility or Driver" dropdown to
    select Oracle JDBC drivers
    From the resulting page, scroll down a little (since SQLJ stuff appears at
    the top).

  • How do I setup high speed internet on Sun Solaris 10?

    I have comcast high speed internet. It doesn't work automatically. How can I setup my high speed internet connection to work with Sun Solaris 10?

    Pickup a broadband router, made by dlink, linksys, netgear, SMC or Cisco. If possible get a wireless with 4 port switch built in. This will give you added flexibility if you happen to get another system or a wireless laptop. You want a gateway router that does NAT, SPI firewall, DHCP.
    Plug it into your cable modem then into your sun box, default settings on the router will generally self configure to the broadband you connect to and there will be no problems. However if you are using a DSL or bigpond they require a username and password to get the line active, this requires an initial login to the firewall to pick PPoE on the WAN side.
    Different brands default to different 'non routeable' internal IP's, all are 192.168.x.x, smc defaults to 192.168.1.x or 192.168.2.x depending on release date, Linksys defaults to 192.168.2.x as does linksys, Netgear defaults to 192.168.1.x, the owners manual will usually tell you this.
    They are generally made to default to a windows box so configuring a unix box has to be done either manually or with the dhcp option. has alot of good vendor specific information on configuring these things.
    At any rate you need to create a file in /etc called 'defaultrouter' with the routers IP address, in the smc case it would be, pick a couple of outside DNS servers and put them in a file in /etc called resolv.conf in the format
    copy nsswitch.dns nsswitch.conf
    pick an address in the 192.168.2 range like .25 and add it in the /etc/hosts file, create a hostname.hme0 file with the host name thats in the hosts file and reboot.
    Then try to ping the router, if no ping then the chang the 3td octet 1 instead of 2 and try again.
    I've never tried doing the .dhcp thing but I've never used dhcp for a sun box before because all I do is servers.
    I think I'd try the DHCP thing first then get to the router to get all it's information and write it down. Usually the ISP will populate the router with dns servers and any dns requests are answered by the router in the dhcp configuration. I think thats about it...
