Re: Upgrading from 10g to 11g on Windows

The other thing that I've run into is that the upgrade wants a PRE script run on the 10g instance and that PRE script changes the instance. In my case, I'm going from 32bit winders to 64bit winders and 10g to 11g. I'm going to have to install a temporary copy of 10g 32bit on my 11g 64bit machine so that I can run the PRE script. I don't really want to change my current production instance by running the PRE script on it. Read the upgrade info very carefully. There are just plenty of unexpected gotcha's in there waiting.

I am getting ready to upgrade some small instances of to on a new server. My plan is to copy cold backups from the old server to the new one where I have already installed 11g. The instructions for using DBUA assume that you are upgrading an existing server where the Windows services for the instances already exist which will not be the case for the approach that I am taking. How do I get DBUA to recognize my copied databases?
