Hi DBA's,
I have Upgraded oracle from 11.2.0.1 to 11.2.0.3 using database upgrade configuration assistant. Now Oracle is running fine and version is 11.2.0.3, but alert_Sid.log is resides in the old home. Moreover, it writes the log in the old home location itself

Old Home: C:\Oracle\diag\rdbms\wind\wind\trace\alert_wind.log
New Home: C:\Ora11g\diag\rdbms\(empty).

Can you please suggest me, how to move the alert.log file to new home.

Steps Reproduced:
1. Installed Oracle 11.2.0.3 as a separate home.
2. Configured Listener
3. Ran DBUCA from 11.2.0.3 home
4. Completed Upgrade.

So change these parameters to point to the new location you want.

Hi Michel,
Thanks a lot, I made changes for those parameters to the new location. Now Oracle writes alert.log under new location.

Indeed, Oracle assistant does not change these parameters as they are yours and can point anywhere, most often outside the Oracle home.
I advise you to do so to prevent from having to change them when you change the Oracle home for an upgrade.
Do not mix up what is about the databases and what is about Oracle binaries.
