I am pretty sure that means if you installed the oracle preconfigured database and are using that, not if used dbca to create your own database. As I recall, Oracle offers preconfigured oltp, reporting, and hybrid databases as part of the installation.

Hi Everyone,

I'm upgrading from to on HP-UX 11.11 and I have a question. The patch notes for contain the following text:

7.1.2 Upgrading a Release 9.2 Database Not Using Oracle Label Security

If you want to upgrade an Oracle9i release 9.2 preconfigured database, and you are not using Oracle Label Security, complete the following steps to avoid errors during the upgrade:

  1. Use Oracle Universal Installer release 9.2 to install Oracle Label Security using the Custom installation type.
  2. Run the $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/catnools.sql script with the SYSDBA privilege to remove Oracle Label Security components from the database.

Now, my question is about the word preconfigured. Does that mean that you used the 9i installer to create a database as part of installing 9i? My 9i database got that way by being upgraded from 8i which was upgraded from 7 so I don't think this applies to me. Does anyone know for sure?

Thanks in advance
