RE: How to change to new ORACLE_HOME while upgrading to 9.2.0.6 ?

Thanks Les,
Do you have a reference to support the statement re Oracle supporting
the tar option with -p.

Not that I don't believe you of course, it would be a useful argument in
a project I am working on at the moment

Thanks

John

No Oracle does not support the TAR method,  however , it DOES work
providing you use the -p option along with the others  The -p will
preserve the permissions on all files ...and you need it on the
$ORACLE_HOME/bin/oracle   file or else nothing works for users other
than oracle.

 tar -cvpf tarball $ORACLE_HOME

then of course use the -p on the "un"tar

tar -xvpf

Oracle did not used to support that method of installing Oracle. There
may also be issues with the Inventory.
