RE: To Users of 9i

We've been using 9i in production since August 20, 2001 on *one* of our databases. So far, we are happy with it and haven't had any recurring problems. However, that database doesn't require many of the new 9i features that could be bug-prone, so we have the advantage of gradual implementation of new features as they are time-tested. Here are my recommendations based on our short experience:

  1. Be prepared to read several pounds of documentation, most importantly the Migration Guide.
  2. Research the known 9i bugs and issues on MetaLink and the Oracle-L list:
  3. Be sure to read the MetaLink doc on the upgrade/install bug. You have to set a parameter in init.ora before installation and then remove it afterwards.
  4. We decided not to use the new Undo Tablespace feature of 9i based on a posting on this list in which someone encountered a corrupted Undo tablespace and had serious problems. Still using Rollback Segments until the Undo TS is more robust.
  5. Someone reported corruption during export of a tablespace that used Label Security.
  6. Say goodbye to Server Manager, say hello to logging in as "<USER> as sysdba" instead.
  7. The 8.1.7 version of OEM that runs on Windows doesn't work with 9i databases, although the new OEM for Windows release is scheduled for today (25-SEP-01) according to Oracle. Apparently, this is not an issue for OEM running on Solaris.

Anyone else have anything to contribute to this list of 9i problems?
