Database Upgrade


How can I upgrade Oracle to in Solaris environment? This databse use Streams to replicate a schema DML operation to another database. (Bi-directional). What pre-cautions we need to take? Can anyone throw some idea and the steps?

Thanks in advance.

The readme for the patchset should have any special steps for streams if there are any.

I've never done that specific patchset on streams but is the readme doesn't specifically mention streams, it should be just like any other patch.

If you are nervous about it just stop propagation while you upgrade them.  Once everything is patched, restart propagation.
hi sree_vasan,
