I am experiencing a prblem while migrating from Oracle server
V 7.2.3 to 7.3.3 (AIX 4):
I have taken the following steps:
- shutdown the old database
- take a full tape backup
- deinstall old software
- install new software
After that I wanted to update the databse objects by invoking orainst
once again. After choosing Update database objects I was never asked
about the former version (which is mentioned in the documentation).
After leaving orainst I wanted to startup the new database server by
invoking svrmgrl (German texts translated):
Oracle Server Manager Release 18.104.22.168.0 - ProductionQuote:> svrmgrl

ORA-00205: error in identifying control file
ORA-09782: sfifi: another instance has the same database mounted.
You see: I am unable to mount the control files, but I am absolutely
sure to have dismounted the old database.
Any help will be appriceated
