DB drop after HPOM upgrade
I was performed the upgrade procedure on my HPOM 8.35 and upgrade to HPOM 9.2.
I was referring to "HPOM_9.20_Installation_Guide_HP-UX.pdf".
After the core upgrade, I noted that the db was completely deleted.
Why the upgrade procedure did drop the db?
Note that I had Oracle Database Version 11g.
Thank you so much
There are two reasons why the DB is dropped and re-created during the upgrade from OMU 8.x to 9.x:
- The database schema changed between OMU 8.x and OMU 9.x.
- OMU 8.x used eithe ISO-8859-1 or Japanese SJIS as DB character set. OMU 9.x uses UTF-8 as DB character set.
thank you so much for your help.
During the upgrade (from 8.x to 9.20) the DB wasn't re-created.
In particular, once the upgrade completed i don't have anything the db, I lost everything.
Did you use the ovoupgrade_8xto92 script from the FTP?
Once the DB is dropped, the upgrade is very similar to a new install. Depending on where it fails, you should be able to continue by either running ovoupgrade_8xto92 again or by running ovoinstall to (re-)create the DB. And after that you can upload the configuration again.
If you want to send me the /var/opt/OV/log/OpC/mgmt_sv/installation.log* files in a private message, I can take a look to see where it failed.
