Dear all,

firstly I did test out upgrading from 11.2.0.2 to 11.2.0.4 on a virtualbox machine and every thing works accordingly. but when it comes to upgrading for my client, something is not right.

I've successfully update from 11.2.0.2 to 11.2.0.4 on windows server 2012 r2

regarding upgrading the enterprise manager configuration, here's what I did after installing 11.2.0.4 home, I copied spfile, password file, network configuration files from old oracle home to new oracle home.

I also did copy %OLD_ORACLE_HOME%\win2012r2-112db_nowatzki to %NEW_ORACLE_HOME%\
%OLD_ORACLE_HOME%\oc4j\j2ee\OC4J_DBConsole_win2012r2-112db_nowatzki %NEW_ORACLE_HOME%\oc4j\j2ee\


after successfully upgrading 11.2.0.2 to 11.2.0.4

I follow mos 837570.1 step 40

emca -upgrade db -respFile emca_reconfigure_upgrade.rsp


initially it started but after I restarted dbconsole cannot be started again

D:\app\oracle\product\11.2.0.2\dbhome_1\bin>emctl start dbconsole

More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 3547.

here's what OracleDBConsolenowatzki log is

here's my response file

JMS_PORT=5540

Obviously I there's something wrong with the Oracle Service, OracleDBConsolenowatzki, because it seems to start from the old oracle home.

would appreciate if anyone could tell me how to make dbconsole run again

many many thanks in advance!

I would never try to upgrade the DB Console. Get rid of it, use emca and if that can't do it, delete the files and the service using Windows utilities. Then use emca to create again.

However, you should note that in the current release (11.2.anything is rather old, you know) the DB Console no longer exists. So perhaps there is little point in configuring it at all.
