    Unanswered: Two versions of oracle in same box.

    Hi,

    We have now oracle 8.1.6 installed on our test environment.
    Is it possible to install 8.1.7 on same machine (hp-ux) , and keep both databases up at the same time ?

    Re: Two versions of oracle in same box.

    yes!

    just make sure the $ORACLE_HOME of both versions is different.

    there are some additional pitfalls like listeners, intelligent agents, startup-scripts, but with some caution it's not that hard.

    Well, if those versions are working together, I'm quite sure that my oracle versions will also work together.
    If not, I'll ask help again.


    Thanks.
    Ktos.

    Noone ever said this wouldn't work.
    But you are doing this at your own risk. And if you loose any data or anything crashes, dont ween or blame someone but yourself. ;-)

    I have a 8.0.5. and a 8.1.7 on the same machine, but they don't seem to like each other. Only one listener will do it's job, so I have to turn one of them off if I want to connect to the other database.
    Do I have to install some extra features or is there something special I need to look into?

    Huh? This configuration is definitely supported by Oracle.

    Your second listener has to listen on a different port that your default listener. Also, I never use the default name of "LISTENER" for my listener.
