On 22.214.171.124 in Production:
When attempting to upgrade from 711 to 7202
the following error occurs:
Mismatching Oracle client and Oracle server versions.
Note that this error can also occur when installing the Demantra base version for the first time
The customer has confirmed that the client was upgraded to match the database version by opening up a sqlplus prompt to the target Oracle database and seeing the following result:
SQL*Plus: Release 10.2.0.4.0 - Production on Tue Mar 24 10:01:54 2009
Copyright (c) 1982, 2007, Oracle. All Rights Reserved.
Oracle Database 10g Enterprise Edition Release 10.2.0.4.0 - 64bit Production
With the Partitioning, OLAP, Data Mining and Real Application Testing options
This shows that the Client (Sql Plus line) does indeed now match the Database (Enterprise Edition line) so this warning message in the upgrade/base installation installer should not occur
Note that if your client and database versions do not match then this needs to be resolved before proceeding with the upgrade/install
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Launch the setup.exe of the upgrade patch or base install
