Upgrading from 11.2.0.2 to 11.2.0.3 with Physical Standby - 1

This blog list the steps to upgrade 11gR2 (11.2.0.2) RAC to RAC data guard configuration created earlier to 11.2.0.3. There's another previous post which shows steps to upgrade to 11.2.0.2 to 11.2.0.3, which didn't have a data guard configuration. This post uses the "traditional" method of upgrading a data guard configuration not the transient logical standby method which could be used with 11g databases.

Below are some information related to data guard broker and upgrades from data guard admin guide.
Prior to Release 11.2, the configuration file was restricted to reside only on disks having the same sector size (physical block size) as that upon which the file was initially created. This was not a problem because there was typically a single sector size in use within a given broker configuration. In anticipation of having mixed sector sizes somewhere within a given broker configuration, the 11.2 broker configuration file is now completely insensitive to the underlying sector size, so long as the sector size is 4KB or less.

The DGMGRL command-line interface must also be upgraded to release 11.2 in order to manage and monitor a broker configuration running Oracle Data Guard release 11.2. DGMGRL release 11.2 cannot be used to manage Data Guard releases 10.n or 11.1.

The first time the release 11.2 broker starts, it will detect the existence of the release 10.n and 11.1 broker configuration files and automatically upgrade them to include any new properties that were introduced in release 11.2 (for example, the fast-start failover properties). This automatic conversion is transparent, permanent, and occurs only once.

Mount the physical standby database(s). The standby database(s) should not be opened until the primary database upgrade is completed. If Active Data Guard was being used prior to the upgrade, then reenable it after upgrading.


Many things could be done in parallel to save time. For example upgrade of grid infrastructure could be done parallel at standby site as well as primary site, also the installation of Oracle database software could also be done in parallel. But in this case first the standby site software was upgraded and then primary site software and database was upgraded. This post list the standby site upgrade and part 2 will list the primary site upgrade.

Both primary site's standby site's grid infrastructure (GI) requires patch 12539000. This will be flagged when cluster verification tool is run.

Patch's readme.txt is still no good (read the earlier post's patch apply). Use opatch auto to apply patch on GI and Oracle Home.

Next step is to upgrade the Oracle database software.

Create new directory for the out of place upgrade
mkdir -p /opt/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_2
Verify pre upgrade configuration for DB home with
cluvfy stage -pre dbinst -upgrade  -src_dbhome /opt/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1 -dbname rac11g2s -dest_dbhome /opt/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_2 -dest_version 11.2.0.3.0 -fixup -fixupdir /home/oracle/fixupscript -verbose
Execute the runInstaller for database software.
Select install database software only option
Select all nodes
Specify the new location

Execute root.sh and conclude software install.

What remains is to configure the standby database to run out of new (11.2.0.3) oracle home.
Copy the initialization , password and tnsnames.ora files into new oracle home
cp initrac11g2s1.ora orapwrac11g2s1 /opt/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_2/dbs

Stop the standby database running out of old (11.2.0.2) home and startup mount on new (11.2.0.3) home. If active data guard is used this will not be available from this point onwards until primary is upgraded.

Also edit the oracle home value set on listener.ora file in GI_HOME/network/admin used for static listener registration.

This concludes the upgrade on standby site. At this stage standby is on 11.2.0.3 and primary is on 11.2.0.2 and standby will be continue to function as a pre-11g data guard (without active data guard).

Next is to upgrade the primary site.
