    I've never tried copying over the Oracle software from one server to another. Basically I just reinstall from the cd's. But having been through minor OS version upgrades that were done in place, no that will not work without some extra work. Basically you want to relink the Oracle executables. Look in $ORACLE_HOME/lib. There are a bunch of .mk files there that will do the bulk of the work for you, although I'd recommend reloading from cd. Also We're using HP-UX 11.0 & 11.1 on and 9.2, no problems. But if at all possible try to steer clear of 8.1.6. Too many nasty bugs that like to bite you in the middle of the night. Stuff like ORA-00600 with PMON then crashing the instance. is stable, none of that odd behavior, but it is also not supported anymore either.

When I asked my first question about how good HP-UX 11.23 was, I only got one hit.  

What version is everyone else currently running?  

Right now, the production server is: "HP-UX ga016afe B.11.11".  

I don't mind going newer, but I would hate this to be a "show stopper" if our production machines won't install.  

Also, AURGH!!! They want me to install Oracle 8.1.6 on this box. I'm thinking that ain't gonna go, but who knows? I'm trying to discourage that.  

We also got the possibility of just copying all the software from the old box to the new box, basically duplicating /u001 where the $ORACLE_HOME is. But if the O/S changes, will that work?  

Any "Been there, done that, you're (hosed/okay)" greatly appreciated.
