You can go stright to 7.5.

Do NOT start the services at 7.5, but first install the 7.5.0.3 or .04 patch,as there is a bug at 7.5 that may affect you.

Look at SORT for NBU (link on here   https://sort.symantec.com )

and use the upgrade checklist feature and look at the 7.x upgrade portal

Everything you could possible need is in these two areas.

Right i can choose 7.5 and will check the SORT.

 

please address on upgrading the client agent for ORACLE, which is taking ORACLE HOT BACKUPS.

Should all be covered in the SORT site - it is very very detailed...

All agents and options are included in 7.x software. No additional/special software or steps needed.

Hi Shakeel,

Few inputs from me 

Copy all existing RMAN scripts while upgrading database - Media / Client systems b'coz at the time of upgradation all existing RMAN scripts will be overwrite with default sample scripts in default path.

Also make sure you will apply recent patch level ... i guess 7.5.0.3 is the letest.

Hi folks.
I also have an update task from 6.5 to 7.5 on Solaris Sparc.
I have questions about the item "image metadata migration."

What exact steps must be performed at this stage?
 

Thanks.
