Steps for Upgrading the Database to 10g Release 2Preparing to Upgrade
In this section all the steps need to be performed to the previous version of Oracle. Please note that the database mustbe running in normal mode in the old release.
Log in to the system as the owner of the new 10gR2 ORACLE_HOME and copy the following files from the 10gR2ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin directory to a directory outside of the Oracle home, such as the /tmp directory on yoursystem:ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/utlu102i.sqlORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/utltzuv2.sqlMake a note of the new location of these files.
Change to the temporary directory that you copied files to in Step 1.Start SQL*Plus and connect to the database instance you are intending to upgrade (running from the originalORACLE_HOME) as a user with SYSDBA privileges. Then run and spool the utlu102i.sql file.
sqlplus '/as sysdba'SQL> spool Database_Info.logSQL> @utlu102i.sqlSQL> spool off
Please note: The instance can be running in normal mode and does not need to be running in a restricted (migrate / upgrade) mode to run the script. Also, the instance must not be running in read-only mode. A few registry$ tables may be created, if they do not already exist, and some rows may be inserted into existing Upgrade tables.
