There is a slight difference between not upgrading a "stable" system and grossly exceeding all the lifetimes and lifecycles of the hardware and software...

Mind you: our last 7.3 db was on a server that had rust coming off the sides and needed a whack on the disk drives in order to boot after a power fail.
You cannot imagine the fight I had to bring it to 10.2. It took an almost unrecoverable db crash to convince the PTB that it might be a good idea...
It's now in the first db that will be upgraded to 11gr2. Received on Wed Mar 09 2011 - 14:37:31 CST
