RE: Does sga_target not work for 10.2 upgrade or is Oracle Suppor
 t cl ueless?




Hi Paul,



The error I got was when issuing the startup upgrade command (Step 29):


SQL> startup upgrade pfile=/oracle/mds/admin/pfile/initmdsdb.ora
ORACLE instance started.
Total System Global Area 1258291200 bytes
Fixed Size 1978336 bytes
Variable Size 369102880 bytes
Database Buffers 872415232 bytes
Redo Buffers 14794752 bytes
ORA-12709: error while loading create database character set



I don't know how this has anything to do with the sga but I've gotten enough oracle error messages that didn't have anything to do with the actual error that I'm willing to consider it as a possibility.

I'm having problems upgrading a dev database from 10.1 to 10.2 (the first
time I've tried this).   After opening a Tar the support tech said I
obviously didn't follow directions since I didn't set SHARED_POOL_SIZE,
LARGE_POOL_SIZE, or JAVA_POOL_SIZE as it said in the documentation.  I had
purposely not set them as I had created this database using sga_target

So do I actually need to go back to the old parameters to do the upgrade and
then go back to sga_target after completing it?  Has anyone upgraded 10.1 to
10.2 using sga_target?

This is 64-bit Solaris, Oracle to

Where are you receiving the error - in executing the pre-upgrade script "utlu102i.sql" ?
(page 3-4 of b14238.pdf - Oracle(r) Database Upgrade Guide 10g Release 2 (10.2) B14238-01)

Using dbma?
I have used sga_target during application of the patchset on win32 without error.
I have not yet upgraded any databases from 10.1.0.x to
