RE: Upgrading from 10g to 11g on Windows

We've had 11.1 RAC w/ ASM, running in production, on Linux x86-64, since July 2008.
Now, this was a brand new system, from the ground up, no legacy code or processes. I was a little nervous, but, it's been very stable. I'm quite pleased with it.
I'm currently working on a prototype for another new system, that's running 220.127.116.11, and will go prod w/ latest 11.2 patchset, if it gets approved as a full project. (Still in proof of concept phase for that one.)
I'm generally less enthusiastic about upgrading existing legacy systems, than I am launching a new system on relatively new Oracle version.
But, to answer your question, yes, 11.1 is ready for primetime. Go for it!

Are you moving a prod instance? Im not sure if 11.1 is already strong enough to migrate prod enviroments, a common rule says to wait until the second release of a new version. Any advice?

I don't believe you will be able to use DBUA in this situation (I've not tried, so this is just a guess based on what I know). You will probably have to do a manual upgrade in this case. As already suggested, an expdp/impdp might be a good solution too.

I am getting ready to upgrade some small instances of 10.2.0.3.0 to 18.104.22.168.0 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?
