This document describes how to upgrade to a new release of the Oracle GoldenGate data replication software for HP NonStop (Guardian).

This document contains the following sections:

Upgrading Oracle GoldenGate

Upgrading Oracle GoldenGate requires three phases: backup, installation, and migration.

  • Backup: Perform a full backup of your Oracle GoldenGate environment before installing and migrating to the latest Oracle GoldenGate release.

  • Installation: Install Oracle GoldenGate following the steps in the installation guide, Installing for HP NonStop (Guardian). Keep in mind that you must specify a new subvolume for your upgraded Oracle GoldenGate instance.

  • Migration: Once you have installed Oracle GoldenGate, you must migrate to the latest instance. Follow the steps in Migrating from a Previous Release of Oracle GoldenGate to complete the migration.

Migrating from a Previous Release of Oracle GoldenGate

Following are the steps to migrate from a previous release of Oracle GoldenGate:

  1. Bring down your current Oracle GoldenGate instance:

    TACL> RUN GGSCI
    GGSCI> STOP SYNCFILE *
    GGSCI> STOP REPLICAT *
    GGSCI> STOP EXTRACT *
    GGSCI> STOP LOGGER
    GGSCI> STOP MANAGER
    GGSCI> EXIT
    
  2. After you install Oracle GoldenGate, GGSUNPAK prompts you:

    Would you like to Migrate information from another GGS environment (Y/N): Y
    
  3. Enter your previous Oracle GoldenGate volume and subvolume:

    Enter old GGS vol.subvol: $PROD.GGS1000
    Copying GGS data from $PROD.GGS1000...
    File Utility Program - T6553G07 - System  \GGS2
    (C)1981 Tandem (C)2005 Hewlett Packard Development Company, L.P.
    ALLOW ABENDS OFF
    ALTER CONTEXT, NO AUDIT
    LOAD $DATA11.GGS1000.CONTEXT, CONTEXT, SORTED
    RECORDS LOADED: 8
    ALTER CONTEXT, AUDIT
    ALTER GROUP, NO AUDIT
    COPY $DATA11.GGS1000.GROUP, GROUP
    3 RECORDS TRANSFERRED
    ALTER GROUP, AUDIT
    ALTER EXTCTXT, NO AUDIT
    COPY $DATA11.GGS1000.EXTCTXT, EXTCTXT
    1 RECORDS TRANSFERRED
    ALTER EXTCTXT, AUDIT
    ALTER REPGRP, NO AUDIT
    COPY $DATA11.GGS1000.REPGRP, REPGRP
    1 RECORDS TRANSFERRED
    ALTER REPGRP, NO AUDIT
    COPY $DATA11.GGS1000.REPGRP, REPGRP
    1 RECORDS TRANSFERRED
    ALTER REPGRP, AUDIT
    ALTER REPCTXT, NO AUDIT
    COPY $DATA11.GGS1000.REPCTXT, REPCTXT
    2 RECORDS TRANSFERRED
    ALTER REPCTXT, AUDIT
    ALTER REMCTXT, NO AUDIT
    ALTER REMCTXT, AUDIT
    ALTER RMTCTXT, NO AUDIT
    COPY $DATA11.GGS1000.RMTCTXT, RMTCTXT
    1 RECORDS TRANSFERRED
    ALTER RMTCTXT, AUDIT
    LOAD $DATA11.GGS1000.LOGGGS, LOGGGS, SORTED
    RECORDS LOADED: 188
    ALTER LOGCONF, NO AUDIT
    ALTER LOGCONF, AUDIT
    ALTER MRKRGGS, NO AUDIT
    ALTER MRKRGGS, AUDIT
    
  4. If you have a running Logger process, you are asked if you want to HOTSWAP the Logger object.

    Logger was running during migrate
    Do you want to HOWSWAP logger to the new ENV  (Y?N)
    

    If you answer yes, the program will change to the Logger object running in the migration process installation location.

    Note:

    You can HOTSWAP only when migrating from a release 10.0 or later environment. Caution: You must coordinate HOTSWAP with any manual steps to upgrade BASELIB as part of the upgrade process.

  5. DUP any Obey files you use in your current Oracle GoldenGate environment. This step is particularly critical if your Obey files contain table define names or startup/shutdown commands.

  6. Recompile your user exits, then rebind them into Oracle GoldenGate. You must perform this step to ensure your user exits work with your newly-installed release of Oracle GoldenGate.

    Note:

    When you install the new release of Oracle GoldenGate, all program locations are updated to the new default. If Extract or Replicat are expected to run from a specific place, you must manually point to the correct location using the ALTER command.

    TACL> ALTER EXTRACT group_name PROGRAM program_location
    
  7. Point your applications to the new release of GGSLIB.

    TACL> BIND PROGRAMS, CHANGELIB
    

    Enter the list of applications you want to bind.

    Enter your new GGSLIB when prompted.

    Enter GO to bind your new library to your applications.

  8. Restart your Oracle GoldenGate components in your new environment.
