Recently I tiried to upgrade a simple 11.2 Grind Infrastructure installation to 18.104.22.168 with the Upgrade Option from the Oracle Universal Installer. During the Upgrade i get the following error:
INS-40406 The installer detects no existing Oracle Grid Infrastructure software on the system.
CAUSE: The installer was unable to detect any existing Oracle Clusterware or Oracle ASM installation to upgrade.
ACTION: You can choose either to install a new Oracle Grid Infrastructure installation (Oracle Clusterware and Oracle ASM) on this node, and add the node to an existing cluster, or you can install a new Oracle Grid Infrastructure installation and make the node part of a new cluster. If you want to add the node to an existing cluster, then review Oracle Clusterware Administration and Deployment Guide and follow the add node procedure. If you want to create a new cluster, then select the option for a new installation.
This error could happen, if you have an incorrect Inventory on your server. To fix this problem, you can start (from the old GI Home) the Oracle Universal Installer to update your inventory.
[oracle@server03 grid]$ cd /opt/oracle/app/11.2.0/grid/oui/ [oracle@server03 oui]$ cd bin [oracle@server03 bin]$ ./runInstaller -updateNodeList ORACLE_HOME="/opt/oracle/app/11.2.0/grid" CRS=true Starting Oracle Universal Installer...
As always comments are welcome
