I have been used the solution given, it works fine with linux, but not on SOLARIS
can you help with this updated:
sed 's/$DB_NAME:\/export\/oracle\/product\/11.2.0.1:N/$DB_NAME:\/export\/oracle\/product\/11.2.0.2:N/g' /etc/oratab

the answer i was given and looks ok for linux is
sed -i 's/DATABASE:\/export\/oracle\/product\/11.2.0.1:N/DATABASE:\/export\/oracle\/product\/11.2.0.2:N/' /export/oracle/oratab

sed 's/.../.../' /export/oracle/oratab > /tmp/oratab.tmp && mv /tmp/oratab.tmp /export/oracle/oratab

sed on solaris doesn't support -i option. You have to use above syntax, or install GNU sed.

You can also make this sed a little bit prettier by using separator other than "/". For example "+":
sed 's+DATABASE:/export/oracle/product/11.2.0.1:N+DATABASE:/export/oracle/product/11.2.0.2:N+' /export/oracle/oratab > /tmp/oratab.tmp \
   && mv /tmp/oratab.tmp /export/oracle/oratab
