How to downgrade DP version from 7.0 to 6.1 ?

Could anyone please help me to get the procedure to downgrade the DP version from 7.0 to 6.1, without desturbing the present configuration ? Our cell manager is installed on HPUX -11.31 and below are my querries


1)      Suppose if we have already upgraded the version from 7.0 to  6.1 ,do we need installation setup file
(omnisetup.sh   of 6.1) to downgrade the version ?

2)      Also before the upgrade which are all the files /folders to be backed up as a precaution to get the previous backup configuration in HP unix  

3)    Our  DB  backups are configured using rman scripts, will there be any issue after the upgrade?

If you have not done the update only takes a backup of the database 6.1,

Do the update and if something fails you remove  the DP 7 and install the 6.1 again, after installing import the tapes and do a restore database and done.
Another good option would be to make ignite backup  before the update, if something  fail go back to the image of ignite.


-About the oracle: check if you version of oracle are supported on DP7, if is supported nothing should be fail.
