We are currently running Oracle 9.2.0.1.0, but because I have a customer who is running 9.2.0.6.0, I need to upgrade to this version.  My first question is what are the best practice steps to complete this upgrade.  For example, is the patch cumulative?  In other words, can one install it alone or do we need to apply each patch file between 9.2.0.1.0 and 9.2.0.6.0?  Second question is where the patch file can be located.  I cannot find this patch anywhere.  The OS is Windows 2003 R2.

We always back every thing up before upgrading... data, program files, etc.  Make sure to shut down the database first.

Patch is cumulative.

To get the patch, you need to log into Metalink and download it there.

Just saw you are on Windows... I've always found that doing a Windows upgrade, that it is best to set all "Oracle" services to Manual startup and re-boot -- not in the readme, but somethings in Windows stay open even if you shut down the service.  Just make sure to record which services are normally set to start automatically... :)

Are there no other sources for the patch?  I have an Oracle general account, but not a metlink account.
