RE: Problem upgrading from Windows 2000 Oracle 8.0.6 to Oracle 9.2.0.1.0

Try starting an Oracle 9 listener.  I'm not sure if an 8.0.6 listener can
be used by a 9.2 client.

Thanks Jared (and to Thomas Day also) for the suggestion. I've copied
over the tnsnames.ora file, (and also the listener.ora and sqlnet.ora
files for good measure) to the 9.2 network\admin directory, bounced
everything and tried again, but with exactly the same result. Obviously
I'm missing something really obvious, but my brain's just seized up on
this one. Any further ideas would be REALLY welcome!

In case it helps, here's the essential information:

Services running are the 8.0.6 listener, and the 8.0.6 database instance
services.

The Global Name, db_name and db_domain of the database are DLIB.WORLD,
dlib and WORLD respectively.

When I run the 9.2 database upgrade assistant it lists: "Oracle SID:
DLIB, OracleHome: d:\oracle\ora80".

The message when I try to proceed is "ORA-12203: TNS: unable to connect
to destination".

The tnsnames.ora file (which I've now copied to the 9.2 network\admin
directory) contains:

# D:\ORACLE\ORA80\NET80\ADMIN\TNSNAMES.ORA Configuration
File:d:\oracle\ora80\net80\admin\tnsnames.ora
# Generated by Oracle Net8 Assistant

DLIB.WORLD =
  (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = diglib3)(PORT = 1521))
    (CONNECT_DATA = (SID = dlib))
  )

EXTPROC_CONNECTION_DATA.WORLD =
  (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = IPC)(Key = EXTPROC0))
    (CONNECT_DATA = (SID = extproc))
  )

The listener.ora file (also copied over to 9.2 directory) contains:

# D:\ORACLE\ORA80\NET80\ADMIN\LISTENER.ORA Configuration
File:d:\oracle\ora80\net80\admin\listener.ora
# Generated by Oracle Net8 Assistant

PASSWORDS_LISTENER= (oracle)

LISTENER =
  (ADDRESS_LIST =
    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = IPC)(KEY = oracle.world))
    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = IPC)(KEY = EXTPROC0))
    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = NMP)(SERVER = DIGLIB3)(PIPE = ORAPIPE))
    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = DIGLIB3)(PORT = 1521))
  )

SID_LIST_LISTENER =
  (SID_LIST =
    (SID_DESC =
      (SID_NAME = extproc)
      (PROGRAM = extproc)
    )
    (SID_DESC =
      (GLOBAL_DBNAME = DIGLIB3)
      (ORACLE_HOME = d:\oracle\ora80)
      (SID_NAME = dlib)
    )
  )

The sqlnet.ora file (also copied over) contains:

# D:\ORACLE\ORA80\NET80\ADMIN\SQLNET.ORA Configuration
File:d:\oracle\ora80\net80\admin\sqlnet.ora
# Generated by Oracle Net8 Assistant

NAME.DEFAULT_ZONE = world

NAMES.DEFAULT_DOMAIN = world

#sqlnet.authentication_services = (NONE)

SQLNET.EXPIRE_TIME = 0

SQLNET.ENCRYPTION_SERVER = requested

SQLNET.ENCRYPTION_CLIENT = requested

NAMES.DIRECTORY_PATH= (TNSNAMES, HOSTNAME)


I hope someone can see the obvious mistakes here - they're not obvious
to me (he says, feeling very, very dim!)

Best regards,

Paul

You likely need to investigate the 9.2 tnsnames.ora file.  It probably
needs to be modified to include the 8.0.6 database information.

The DBCA is getting the info from the registry, but that doesn't help
you with creating a database connection.

Problem upgrading from Windows 2000 Oracle 8.0.6 to Oracle 9.2.0.1.0






Hi everybody,

I've just installed Oracle 9.2.0.1.0 onto a Windows 2000 server which
was currently running Oracle 8.0.6 with a single instance on it. I
noticed that during the installation, I wasn't presented with the
Upgrading An Existing Database screen. This may be significant! I didn't
think anything of it, since I intended to run the Database Upgrade
Assistant independently after installing 9.2.

The installation went smoothly. I then checked that the 8.0.6 db
instance was still up and running, by connecting to it from my office
workstation. Yes, fine. Back to the server, and I fired up Database
Upgrade Assistant from the Oracle 9.2 program group. After the Welcome
screen it showed the panel which did indeed list my 8.0.6 database. I
selected it, gave a userid with the necessary SYSDBA privileges, and a
password, and clicked on next. Then I got an error message: ORA-12203:
TNS unable to connect to destination.

Now, presumably this means I've got something wrongly configured on the
server, such that it can't connect to its own local database. Any ideas
at all, as to where I should start looking, would be very greatly
appreciated!
