RE: Wierd resistance to upgrade

Apparently this is classified as a 'project' not a maintenance task.  So
it needs a project code etc etc etc etc etc ad infinitum.

 

Funny that our 9i OEM to 10.2 Grid Control wasn't a 'project', but
10.2.0.2, to 10.2.0.4 is....

 

Yep, I'm definitely in a bad mood.

Subject: Wierd resistance to upgrade

 

Any of you guys/gals ever run into something like this?

 

I'm trying to upgrade our Grid Control Release 2 to Release 4.  We've
recently migrated many of our databases to 64bit and have freed up
several 32bit boxes.

 

Our existing GC Rel 2 server box is underpowered for having all the
components installed on it.   I've installed the new version on a
previous development box that is much more powerful and am ready to
start moving the jobs from Rel 2 to Rel. 4.  Now I'm being told to hold
off and not spend time on this "project".  But I'm not being given a
clear reason why.

 

I've never been held back before when trying to upgrade our environment
when there is a server available and not spending any additional $$$.  I
would expect resistance if I was asking the company to shell out money,
but this is ridiculous. (or seems that way anyway).  I have asked mgmt
for reasons why they are resistant and hopefully will be given something
to maybe explain this.

 

Or maybe I'm just in a bad mood.

 

GRRRRR
