That script is useful. Look for something under the $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin called utlu101*.sql where the 101 is whichever version number you are going to... THere's on for a utility upgrade information tool and a upgrade status tool in my directory currently. Lyall

Prior to running catupgrd, you will need to run utlirp. Then when you run the catupgrd, then shutdown, startup normal, utlrp.sql

Also look at the parameters in your spfile. Some will be deprecated. There is a script you can run after installing the 10g binaries to give you some guidelines. I don't know what it is off the top of my head, or you can run dbua.

Good Luck.

Hello. I am looking at upgrading from linux 32 to linux 64 bit, and to upgrade from at the same time.

I think I can just install the new Oracle home on the new server, copy the datafiles, spfile, controlfiles, etc, from a cold backup, startup upgrade, and run the catupgrd script.

Am I missing anything? the way I read the doc, the conversion to 64 bit will happen during the catupgrade script. Do I also need to run utlirp.sql? Am I missing anything?
