HP OV SD4.5 - Oracle Instances with different Service Packs ?

Hi,

got a question, we are running a oracle database with 4 instances. (2productive-, test-, develop) At the moment all running on ServicePack11. For our development instance we want to use service pack 27 .

But we dont sure if is possible to only upgrade this instance or will be every instance updated ? At one point in the db wizzard there pops up a window that anounnces that i have to shut down the other application servers to. See attached image. That confuses...we want take the risk. It would be devastating if the complete database would be on the new servicepack 27.

Any suggestions if it its possible to use for an instance another servicepack ?

greets

Hi Ben,

I am pretty sure that the DB upgrade wizard only updates the DB defined as default. One of the screens shown before you actually do the upgrade, shows the account details that will be upgraded and so I think you should be OK.

Hope this helps, Ruth

Hi,

we go further and all went to our full success, only the development instance has been updatet and no problems occur. That means problem solved :)
