Upgrading the Oracle Application Server 10g (10.1.2|10.1.4) Seeded Database from 10.1 to 10.2 (Doc ID 376689.1)

Last updated on MARCH 13, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Fusion Middleware - Version to [Release AS10gR2]
Oracle Fusion Middleware - Version to [Release AS10gR2 to AS10gR3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.



Important Notes:
  • If Oracle Application Server 10g (10.1.2) or Oracle Identity Management 10g (10.1.4) full Infrastructure is installed on a 64-bit platform, an Oracle Database 10g (10.1) is installed as a 32-bit application. (These cases include 64-bit versions of Windows, Linux and Solaris). For this reason, there may be difficulty upgrading to Oracle Database 10g (10.2). The choice is to install a 32-bit DB 10.2 or 64-bit DB 10.2, both presenting complications, with the latter being optimal all things considered. The following should be reviewed:

    <Note 62290.1> Changing between 32-bit and 64-bit Word Sizes
    <Note 553517.1> Changing Word-Size Between 32-bit and 64-bit using DBUA
    <Note 412271.1> ORA-600 [22635] and ORA-600 [KOKEIIX1] Reported While Upgrading Or Patching Databases To

    It is also an option to move to a new hardware machine during this process, but involves more steps, referring to the following:

  • If interested in upgrading to Oracle Database Server 11g, the same basic steps are to be followed as outlined in this article, except there may be separate issues encountered. The upgrade to Oracle Database Server 11g has been tested by Oracle resulting in the following requirements to complement the Certification Guide:

    <Note 740417.1> Oracle Database 11g Release 1 (11.1) Certification for Oracle Application Server 10g (10.1.2, 10.1.3, 10.1.4)
    <Note 887365.1> Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (11.2) Certification for Oracle Application Server 10g (10.1.2, 10.1.3, 10.1.4)
  • If performing this upgrade with a plan to upgrade to Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g, see the following documentation:
