Hi,

We are running Oracle Enterprise software on various client and DB servers and we are experiencing a problem (outlined here //forums.oracle.com/forums/thread.jspa?messageID=3257800) where the apparent mismatch between the oracle drivers are causing the errors.

Our db servers are using 10.2.0.4 and 10.2.0.5 drivers and the clients are using 10.2.0.1.

Firstly, are the drivers the same on the Express and Enterprise editions so that if I update a development server using Express version (I dont have the authority to upgrade the Enterprise version nor the time to commission that) and it is successful, can I reasonably expect an upgrade to the Enterprise client versions on other servers to be safe/error free, baring environmental factors of course ?

Secondly, can I upgrade to version 10.2.0.5 now or do I have to go to the 11g version only ?

I hope I have explained this correctly and that it is understandable as I cannot find this sort of info elsewhere.

Regards, George.

I don't think there is any difference between the 2 editions for the client part; I think only the server part is different but want I don't is if you can upgrade an Entreprise version with an XE CD.
If you can do it (if the installer does not reject you), it is safe to upgrade only the drivers.

Regards
Michel

Hi Michel,

Thanks for the reply.

I was probably going to atempt to uninstall Oracle on the dev server and then install the XE version instead since its a server I can abuse Smile

Is the 10.2.0.5 version still available in XE and Enterprise edition ? If so, how can I just update the driver and is that safe to do anyway ?

Thanks, George.
