    Upgrade Oracle Database to : SOA Suite Install Part II
    Saturday, June 16, 2007
    Register for R12 upgrade
    Next step in installing SOA Suite after installing database is to upgrade this oracle database to version (4547817).

    For Oracle Database Installation Step and Software location click here

    If you selected Standard Edition during database installation, you can skip this database upgrade step. This is because for Enetrprise Edition Database, SOA Suite is certified only with and higher (in 9i database) or version ( For Standard Edition database is certified with SOA Suite

    For detailed information on how to upgrade from database to version follow readme of patch 4547817 or metalink note 316900.1

    Few things about patch set
    i) patch set is not complete software, You can only apply it on top of existing 10.2.0.X installation.
    ii) This patchset on linux can be applied on following version of linux Suse 9, Red Hat AS/ES 3, 4

    Pre Installation Steps
    i) Download patch (download patch according to your operating system like windows, solaris..) and copy it to your linux machine

    ii) Unzip patch as “unzip”

    iii) Set ORACLE_HOME and ORACLE_SID to your database (10.2.0.X) on which you are planning to apply this patchset . In my case its
    ORACLE_HOME = /home/oracle/product/10.2.0/db

    (Command to export environment variable differ as per your shell, above command is used for bash, bourne or ksh)

    iv) Stop database and database listener as mentioned at end of database installation in my previous post

    v) Backup your system (In case anything goes wrong)

    Database Patch Set Installation
    i) Login as user who installed 10.2.0.X database (In my case its “oracle” )

    ii) cd patchset_unzip_directory/DISK1

    iii) ./runInstaller

    iv) On welcome screen click Next

    v) On Specify file location screen, in Name field and Path select Database on which you wish to apply this patch (If you have multiple database installed on your machine you will see drop down menu to select database oracle_home)

    vi) On summay screen, click Install

    vii) In the end when prompted to run , login as root from another window and execute in ORACLE_HOME

    viii) In the end of installation screen click Exit, and click Yes to exit from Oracle Universal Installer

    This step will complete database software upgraded to patchset but we haven’t upgraded our database yet to (In next step we will upgrade our database to version).

    Upgrade 10.2.0.X database to
    Please note steps mentioned here are for upgrading database to from 10.2.0.X version, for upgrade from previous release (8i, 9i, 10g) refer metalink note mentioned above

    i) Make sure you have applied patchset on oracle_home (on which database is installed)

    ii) Login as database owner (oracle) and exexute sqlplus “/as sysdba”

    iii) SQL> startup upgrade
    iv) SQL> spool 10202upgrade.log
    v) SQL> @/rdbms/admin/catupgrd.sql
    vi) SQL> spool off

    (Check if there are any error message in 10202upgarde.log and rerun catupgrd.sql after fixing errors)

    In the end of log file (10202upgarde.log) you should see output like below with component version as

    vii) SQL> shutdown
    viii) SQL> startup
    ix) SQL> @?/rdbms/admin/utlrp.sql
    x) SQL> select count(*) from dba_objects where status like ‘INVALID’;
    Count (*)
    xi) SQL> shutdown immediate (After upgrade and invalid object compilation restart your database cleanly)
    xii) lsnrctl start
    xiii) SQL> startup

    This completes your oracle database upgrade to version.

    If you are hitting any issues in upgrade, raise them in forum dedicated to apps dba's at or leave a comment here.

      Hi Atul,

      Many Thanks for your nice consolidated articles on Installing Oracle SOA in Linux environment.I am little worked with Integration area and just started with Oracle SOA suite. I have done windows installations easily with Oracle lite DB.
      Now I want to test my application in Linux machine which doesn't have DB.
      1. Shall I configure SOA to use DB in another machine?.If yes, then this would have what knid of impacts?.

      Great post!
      only one error:
      this step:
      v) SQL> @/rdbms/admin/catupgrd.sql

      you must add the "?":
      v) SQL> @?/rdbms/admin/catupgrd.sql

      Best regards:

      Mariano Montañez
