    Accepted Solution

    You can find out the steps and requirements in the installation guide at:

    It is better to have a clean installation since 10g is quite different from 9i. A full code backup and full export of your data are recommended.  

    Here is the excerpt for RedHat Linux:


          Log in as the root user.

          Check that Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS/ES 2.1 is installed:

    # cat /etc/issue
    Red Hat Linux Advanced Server release 2.1AS/\m (Pensacola)


          Check that Update 5 is installed:

    # cat /etc/redhat-release
    Red Hat Linux Advanced Server release 2.1AS/\m (Pensacola Update 5)

          If Update 5 is installed, errata 49 is installed and all the required software packages are installed.

          Check that the errata 49 patch, or a higher errata patch approved by Red Hat, is applied using the following command:

    # uname -r

          For example, depending on the version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS/ES installed, the errata 49 patch is listed in the output of the command as follows:


          For information about Red Hat patches, see:

          You must have a Red Hat Network account to download errata files from the Red Hat web site.


          Check that the following software packages, or higher versions, are installed:


          To determine whether a package is installed, enter a command similar to the following:

    # rpm -q package_name

          If a package is missing, download it and install it using the following command:

    # rpm -i package_name

          When installing a package, make sure you are using the correct architecture and optimization rpm file. To check the architecture of an rpm file, run the following command:

    # rpm -q package_name --queryformat "%{arch}\n"

          In the following example, the glibc rpm file is suitable for an Intel architecture

    # rpm -q glibc --queryformat "%{arch}\n"

    Your Redhat version looks fine, see the document: 'Oracle® Application Server Quick Installation and Upgrade Guide' for full details of operating system requirements>>>

    You'll need to upgrade both the mid-tier and infrastructure. The 'Quick Installation and Upgrade Guide' (link above) gives brief details of the mid-tier upgrade.

    For a complete guide, see 'Oracle® Application Server Upgrade and Compatibility Guide 10g Release 2 (10.1.2) for UNIX'>>>
    ...which will guide you through the complete process.

    I wouldn't do a clean reinstall (unless you have to) the upgrade guide should guide you through the steps you need.

    I think you should split the points :)

    (But them I am getting a bit fed up with the inability of question askers to either a) accept an answer or b) add additional information to allow further investigation)

    ...but seriously, I think you have to read this situation as -- geotiger hasn't added any information or closed the question, therefore, either geotiger or bochgoch must have provided the answer sravanthijane was looking for. As we don't know which (or perhaps both) then the points should be split....

    Just my little moan!
