Question About Installation Of Optional Components During Upgrade
Last updated on NOVEMBER 21, 2013
Applies to:Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management - Version 184.108.40.206.0 to 220.127.116.11.0 [Release 7.2.1 to 7.5.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Qn1: Considering optional components (like REL) in the upgrade process from 7.2.1 to 7.3, we are advised to do the following as per docs:
a) uninstall 7.2.1 installation
b) install 7.3 version of component
However installation of 7.3 is performed in a separate directory than we had for 7.2.1.
For example, if the $PIN_HOME was originally "/opt/portal/7.2.1", portal 7.3 is now installed in "/opt/portal/7.3".
Considering the above (and since the variables now point to new $PIN_HOME=/opt/portal/7.3), is it really necessary to perform uninstallation of 7.2.1 components, or can we install new ones directly?
Qn2: Among the optional components, GSM Manager is one of them. In the upgrade documentation it asks to install the patch 4489. (("30. (Optional) Installing Patch 4489" ))
Should one install the GSM Manager from patch 4489 or 7.3_GSM_Mgr_solaris_32_opt.bin from 7.3 media pack?
