I have done several upgrade of SAP databases from 9i to 10g and it will take from 4 to 12 hours.
Check the SAP 10g upgrade instructions, you will need to applly some 20+ patches before upgrade.
Also DO NOT USE dbua, do manually using sqlplus:

STARUP UPGRADE PFILE=initdb10g.ora
@?/rdbms/admin/catupgrd.sql

Open in new window

You get the SAP 10g upgrade instructions from SAP support site.

The STARTUP UPGRADE PFILE=initdb10g.ora is the statement which dbua executes.
The initdb10g.ora is the 10g init.ora file you must prepare with 10g parameters.
All the patches you need to apply are stated in the SAP 10g upgrade instructions which is very very detailed, in fact there are some SAP tasks you will need to perform also.

Hi Mike,

As you have done the SAN DB upgrade already, do you have the "SAP 10g upgrade instructions " , if you can send it to me then it would be great help for me.
As i am from offshore support i dont have direct access to SAP support.
Please send the document if possible,
may be on my email id :-  shndmlnd@gmail.com
if you have any more suggestions then please let me know.

Sorry I only had a hard-copy and discarded it after upgrade.
You need to get it from the client or whomever owns the SAP database.
