Pual,

It is better to use manual upgrade path. Follow Oracle upgrade instruction for manual upgrade. I tried DBUA and it fails with all type of strange errors specially relating to listener.

My experience with manual upgrade is really good. However I am upgarding mostly from 8.1.7.4 to 9.2.0.4. Oracle doc is really good for manual upgrade.

Regards
Rafiq

Solved the "sqlplus" problem - it wasn't anything to do with setting = ORACLE_SID (tried that - didn't work). The trick is to set the "LOCAL" = system variable to the name of the required instance. Setting a system = variable made it permanent, but the same affect could be achieved = temporarily in a DOS window by typing "set LOCAL=3Dxxxxxx" before typing = "sqlplus".

Another thing I never knew (and didn't know I didn't know)!

That still hasn't solved the main problem with Database Upgrade = Assistant, alas...

Cheers,

Paul

Paul,

         This scenario below is because the sid is not set.
         If you set oracle_sid=3Dxxxx, and then simply type sqlplus
         and enter username/password when prompted, you will not
         get ORA-12560.=20

         The other servers must have oracle_sid set.

HTH....../Bob         =20

         .......... peculiarity on this server that, if I open a DOS
window and simply type "sqlplus", then I'm asked for a username and password, which I supply, and then I get an error message ORA-12560: TNS:protocol adapter error.

If however I type "sqlplus myuserid/mypasswd_at_DLIB", ,,,,,,,,,,

         I suspect=20
    =20
