I currently have a database running on Oracle 9.2.0.1, however a consultant installed the software and did not leave any disks.  Now I want to create a test environment on another server (to upgrade to Oracle 10), but have no 9i software to start with.

Does anyone know where I can download Oracle 9i (9.2.x) database software for Windows Server 2003 x64 ??  I been to OTN and they do not have a 9i download for Windows.  Thank you very much!

I'm not aware of anywhere that still has it for download and I'd be cautious of download site that wasn't Oracle.

Do you have any virtual machines set up?  You can use disktovhd to image the existing system and run the testing virtually.

version 9 isn't available anymore because it's no longer supported.

If you have oracle support contract, you might be able to contact them for back versions
but no publically available download will be around (at least no legal ones)

No we do not have any virtual machines set up.  This sounds like something our network people would manage as I'm not familiar with this concept.  I will ask our network people of they could do this.    Thank you for the suggestion.

Not sure why this would be a Network thing.  It's more of a sys admin thing.

You have the admins set you up a machine that has Virtual Server (or Virtual PC), Hyper-V, VMWare or similar virtual product.

Then you can create new virtual machines as you need.

I'm using Hyper-V (windows 2008R2) and you can create snapshots of VMs.  This is great to testing upgrades and such.

Test a procedure, crash the machine, restore back to last snapshot, try again.  It's pretty quick.

Oracle will be moving all their downloads here: http://edelivery.oracle.com

I checked and they do have 9i available for download.
