Database upgrade from 10.2.0.5.0 to 11.2.0.4

The following document is the best one you can start documenting yourself from:

11gr2-upgrade-bp-apr2012-1610082.pdf

From the above document, I followed:

  • Note 251.1: Database Upgrades from 10.2 to 11.2

On that note, on the PLAN tab, I followed:

Complete Checklist for Manual Upgrades to 11gR2 (Doc ID 837570.1)

In this document you’ll find a bunch of steps to be followed. The most important one is the pre-upgrade one, which you have to run it on the SOURCE database. This script is meant to display back to you a lot of useful information in respect to what needs to be changed/adapted on the source (prior upgrade) or on the target (after the upgrade). The script can be found here:

$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/utlu112i.sql

If you run the upgrade on the same server as the source database is on, it’s better if you copy this file in a different place like /tmp or HOME folder.

In my case, between other advices, I got the following warnings:

**********************************************************************
Miscellaneous Warnings
**********************************************************************
WARNING: --> Database is using a timezone file older than version 14.
.... After the release migration, it is recommended that DBMS_DST package
.... be used to upgrade the 10.2.0.5.0 database timezone version
.... to the latest version which comes with the new release.
WARNING: --> Your recycle bin contains 4 object(s).
.... It is REQUIRED that the recycle bin is empty prior to upgrading
.... your database. The command:
 PURGE DBA_RECYCLEBIN
.... must be executed immediately prior to executing your upgrade.
WARNING: --> JOB_QUEUE_PROCESS value must be updated
.... Your current setting of "20" is too low.

.... Starting with Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (11.2), setting
.... JOB_QUEUE_PROCESSES to 0 causes both DBMS_SCHEDULER and
.... DBMS_JOB jobs to not run. Previously, setting JOB_QUEUE_PROCESSES
.... to 0 caused DBMS_JOB jobs to not run, but DBMS_SCHEDULER jobs were
.... unaffected and would still run. This parameter must be updated to
.... a value greater than 48 (default value is 1000) prior to upgrade.
.... Not doing so will affect the running of utlrp.sql after the upgrade
.
**********************************************************************

As you can see, the first advice should be executed on the TARGET database whereas the last 2 on the SOURCE database.

SQL> EXECUTE dbms_stats.gather_dictionary_stats;

PL/SQL procedure successfully completed.
SQL> alter system set job_queue_processes=100 scope=both;

System altered.

SQL> PURGE DBA_RECYCLEBIN;

DBA Recyclebin purged.

Now I just run the usual scripts in order to upgrade to 11204 version:

cd $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin

sqlplus /nolog
conn / as sysdba
STARTUP UPGRADE
SPOOL upgrade11204_DB.log
@catupgrd.sql

-- perform upgrade actions that do not require the database to be in UPGRADE mode
@catuppst.sql

@$ORACLE_HOME/ctx/admin/ctxf102.sql
@utlrp.sql

-- Check for invalid entries:
col comp_name format a80
set linesize 200
set pagesize 2000
SELECT COMP_NAME,VERSION,STATUS FROM DBA_REGISTRY;

-- Check for invalid objects:
SELECT count(*) FROM dba_invalid_objects;
select owner, object_type, object_name from dba_invalid_objects;

### CPU Patch (if that's the case)

@catbundle cpu apply
@utlrp

In the end the, upgrade was successful. However, I still need to fix the timezone issue which appeared in the upgrade check script in the very first step:

SQL> SELECT version FROM v$timezone_file;
