Upgrade Oracle 10g database 10.2.0.1 to 10.2.0.2

I have downloaded the trial version of 10g application server and 10g oracle database from Oracle site. But when I tried installed the 10g application server which needs to connect to the 10g database, I got the following error.
Database version should be 9.2.0.7 or higher in the oracle9i database release 2 series, 10.1.0.5 or higher in the oracle database 10g release 1 series, oracle database XE (10.2.0.1), 10.2.0.2 or higher in the oracle database 10g release 2 series.
How do I upgrade to 10.2.0.2 from 10.2.0.1?
Thanks.

Download patch set from metalink and extract patch into some directory.
Then from that directory run "Opatch install". ( You need to shutdown all database and other service while upgrading code tree)

  • Upgrade Oracle 10g 10.2.0.2 to 10.2.0.4

    Hi,
      Is there anybody there, who upgrades Oracle 10g 10.2.0.2 to 10.2.0.4.
      May I know where did you download and how you did it as I check the SAP Note 1137346, there is before and after upgrade but nothing about the upgrade process and I can't file the upgrade file as well.
    Thanks for the help
    P.S.: Our OS is Windows 2003 and we are running NW2004s , EP7.

    Hello,
    not sure exactly what do you want.
    Is there anybody there, who upgrades Oracle 10g 10.2.0.2 to 10.2.0.4.
    Yes, me, for example
    May I know where did you download and how you did it.

  • BLOB insertion in Oracle 10g database using ojdbc14 (10g drivers)

    Hello!
    I have a situation where I am trying to insert a blob data into oracle 10g database using oracle thin
    10g drivers, <b>ojdbc14.jar</b> in <b>weblogic 8.1 sp2</b>. I have the following error happening very intermittently.
    <u><b>java.sql.SQLException: OALL8 is in an inconsistent state.</b></u>
    And this is leading to the <u><b>"No more data to read from socket"</b></u> error when I am trying to
    insert the BLOB into the database. I have gone through the bug list of SP2 and have realised there is the
    following issue fixed in SP3.
    <b>CR124933</b>
    <b>An Oracle BLOB sometimes used a pooled connection after the connection pool determined that
    the connection was available for reassignment.
    Code was added to ensure the BLOB is completely processed before closing the pool connection or
    ending the transaction.</b>
    I believe the problem arises when we try to insert BLOB into database using a refreshed connection
    from the pool.We have upgraded weblogic 8.1 from SP2 to SP4 service pack inorder to come over the above problem.
    But this still continues to behave intermittently.
    We put ojdbc14.jar in our classpath and Weblogic startup classpath looks like the following :-
    WLS_CLASSPATH=${WLS_DOMAIN_DIR}/appslib/server.jar:$PRE_CLASSPATH:${WLS_WEBLOGIC_HOME}/server/lib/weblogic.jar:

    ${WLS_CUSTLIB_DIR}:${WLS_BIN_DIR}:$POST_CLASSPATH
    export WLS_CLASSPATH
    CLASSPATH=${WLS_CLASSPATH}:${APP_CLASSPATH}
    export CLASSPATH
    After upgrade to SP4, there are new ojdbc14_g.jar(debug jar) and orai18n.jar jars in the ${WLS_WEBLOGIC_HOME}/server/ext/jdbc/oracle/10g directory added.
    Please let me know if I need to update classpath with the new 10g jars in the ext/lib directory or any suggestions
    to insert BLOB using the ojdbc14 10G drivers, Weblogic 8.1 environment would be appreciated.

    > Pradeep GHi. This is something we'd like to diagnose. How is your application
    getting using and closing pool connections? The initial symptom
    seems to be an internal oracle problem... Are you using standard
    JDBC or oracle-specific calls?

  • Oracle 10G Database Control and Scheduling OWB Process Flow

    Does anyone know how to go about scheduling an OWB Process Flow from
    Oracle 10G Data Base Control. I knew how to do this with Oracle Enterprise Manager 9.2 but we recently upgraded to Oracle Db 10G and the interface has changed significantly.
    Now the interface seems to require a PL/SQL stored procedure to be executed.
    Is there a template procedure that is installed with 10G Data Base Control as there was for 9.2 i.e. oem_exec_template.sql?
    Thanks! Deadline approaching fast...
    Marion

    I've used the oem_exec_template.sql successfully with OWB 10.1 and Oracle 10G Database Control, with a little trial and error at first.
    I'm assuming that your job execution environment is set up correctly, ie. that you can properly execute jobs via the host agent.
    1. Log on to Database Control as SYSTEM, select Jobs from the links at the bottom of the page
    2. In the Results section, Create Job, select "SQL Script" and press Go
    3. In the General section, enter Job Name, and as SQL Script enter e.g.:
    @/u01/app/oracle/owb_oracle_home/owb/rtp/sql/oem_exec_template.sql owb_runtime WF_LOC PROCESS MY_PROCESS , ,
    4. In the Databases section, add your target database
    5. In the Credentials section, I select "Override Preferred Credentials" and use the agent account (oracle on my Linux system) and db user owb_access (OWB Runtime Access user)
    6. Review Schedule tab and submit
    Comments on step 3:
    - the oem_exec_template.sql script must be installed according to the path specified in step 3, on the database host where the OWB Runtime Repository is located
    - owb_runtime is the owner of my OWB Runtime Repository
    - WF_LOC is the name of my Workflow Location as seen in OWB Deployment Manager
    - MY_PROCESS is the name of a deployed Workflow Process
    - the commas indicate that I don't supply any system or custom parameters.
    - step 3 is actually a shell command line that is interpreted by eg. /bin/sh on Unix or cmd on Windows, and must obey proper quoting rules. On windows, I had to specify the empty commas as "\," (including dblquotes)

  • ERROR: Install cannot verify the oracle 10g Database

    I just completed installation of the SES 10.1.8.2 version and am now trying to apply the 10.1.8.4 Service Pack. After the OUI screen asks for my sys password, I click on Next and receive a popup error message that reads,
    Install cannot verify the oracle 10g Database. Please ensure that the database and its listener are running and please verify that the information you entered is correct.
    The installer log file (installActions2010-04-15_08-56-19PM.log) shows this:

    ===
    I've verified that I can login as EQSYS using sqlplus. Also tested that I can login as sys, too. I've also tested the login using the Admin console and that is fine, too.
    Any ideas on what is causing this or how to fix it is most welcome as I've not encountered this error before when installing SES or a service pack. I've even tried the OUI for Service pack 10.1.8.3 but also get the same error.
    I've checked the listener.ora and tnsnames and they are OK. I've checked and the listener is running and so is the DB.
    Right now, I have the Oracle SES instance up and running at 10.1.8.2 but need to upgrade this to the same level as the other SES search nodes.
    Edited by: user8655787 on Apr 15, 2010 2:18 PM
    My listener.log file is showing this message each time, I run the OUI and enter the sys password and click "Next"
    15-APR-2010 23:17:05 * 12502
    TNS-12502: TNS:listener received no CONNECT_DATA from client

    A couple of other things that I have tried but have had no affect. I'm still getting the same error:
    1. Tried recreating the orapwd file
    orapwd file=orapwprdses01 password=prdses01
    And make sure that the pfile or spfile has:
    remote_login_passwordfile='EXCLUSIVE'
    another OTN posting said to try this:
    1. Go to directory $ORACLE_HOME/network/admin
    2. Modify sqlnet.ora file with following parameter:
    tcp.validnode_checking = no
    3. If you don't want to disable this, you can put the machine names as follows:
    tcp.invited_nodes=(machine1, machine2)
    3. Bounce the listener.
    .... but, I'm still getting the same error when trying to run the .runInstaller OUI for the service pack for 10.1.8.4.

  • 10R2 Upgrade on Linux stuck upgrading Oracle XML database

    Folks,
    I am upgrading Oracle from 10g r1 to r2 (10.1.0.4 to 10.2.0.1). This is not a large database. Size is around 70gb. It is taking forever to upgrade Oracle XML database. It is running for over 20 hours now.
    I checked the logs and nothing seems to be an issue. Did not get any erros.
    Any idea why xml database upgrade would take so long?.
    I Appreciate your replies.

    How are you performing the upgrade?

  • Connection to Oracle 10g database failing

    Not sure if I should post this here or on another newsgroup, but I am having a problem trying to connect, using WebLogic Server 9.2, to an Oracle 10g database (10.2.0.2), that has been upgraded from Oracle 9i.
    I can connect to the same database using WebLogic 7.0.2, and I can also connect using WebLogic Server 9.2 to an Oracle 9i database.
    I keep getting the 'Authentication denied: Boot identity is not valid' error, but I know that the username/password I am using in the boot.properties file is valid, because I have connected to the same database using WebLogic Server 7.0.2.
    I suspect that the error could be with the drivers I am using, but I have checked and I have the latest oracle jar file in the WL_HOME/server/lib directory.
    I did previously have a version of WebLogic 7.0.2 on the machine but this was deleted.
    On the database in question the listener logs show that a connection was established, but that's it.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Yes that should be possible but is it a production database or just a test database.
    you can always control that in metalink if it is supported, I don't believe it is.

  • We are getting ¿ stored into our Oracle 10g database  (Microsoft fault)

    We are getting ¿ stored into our Oracle 10g database that is using WE8ISO8859P1 character set.
    Problem is caused by the following:
    Microsoft released software (in particularly MS Word) before considering any ANSI or ISO standard (although they claimed so).
    At that time of pioneering graphical interface - they were the standard. Since then things changed. Microsoft initially targeted US marked, however very soon they wanted to expanded to Europe. For that they needed to get standardized character set instead of one initially being in use. Microsoft re-mapped character set in newer applications using Windows-1252 character set which is compatible with ISO-8851-1 (we are using in our Java Web applications). That cleared obstacles to forward on European market, where extended characters are necessary (like in French, Dutch, German languages...)
    What happened with the initial character codes before Microsoft agreed with ISO to standardize characters? Well - Nothing.
    So what are the consequences of that?
    If we are using Microsoft Word document in conjunction with one of the oldest character set (universe) the ice-age character mapping is still there. So when we "cut and paste" the content to another application, characters sets are not mapped anymore. Especially French language "is sensitive to this" The Microsoft character set in Word decimally coded 146 ( ' ) is very often used in French.
    Therefore if the text is generated in MS Word using old character mapping (universe) which we do, and using method of "cutting and paste" we are mismatching character set interpreted by other, newer applications.
    Initially in the MS words (apostrophe) ' had code 191; then later after implementing Windows 1252 character set being moved to code 146 in accordance to ISO. Well ISO threat character coded 191 as ¿. So if you are using MS Word universe character set, ' looks like ' but in newer applications or ISO compatible applications it looks like ¿.
    Can anyone provide me with periodically cleanup routines that replace garbled characters entered by Microsoft applications into Oracle database ?
    Thanks
