Instructions for upgrading the Analytics database schema of Oracle databases

You will need the following files:

The UpgradeDMS70_U2_oracle.zip file contains two files:

  • Oracle_DMS70_U2_BeforeInstall.bat – a Windows batch file that invokes Oracle_DMS70_U2_BeforeInstall.sql for the following Sitecore schemas: analytics.
  • Oracle_DMS70_U2_BeforeInstall.sql – an SQL*Plus script to upgrade the Sitecore DMS database schema to 7.0 U-2. Should be executed before package installation.

Upgrade steps for the Analytics database:

  1. Extract the SQL script and the batch file from the zip archive.
  2. Copy the SQL script and the batch file to the Database Server (or to the PC where the administration tools for the Oracle database are installed and set up).
  3. By default, the upgrade scripts will process one user schema: scanalytics (the actual name depends on the value of the PREFIX environment variable).
    • If your user schema name is different or if you have additional Sitecore user schemas, modify the batch file as necessary (but do not add the core, master and web schemas – they use a different database schema and should not be upgraded).
  4. Shut down Sitecore.
  5. Back up your Sitecore schemas.
  6. Upgrade your DMS database schema.
    • In System Properties/Advanced/Environment Variables set up user-level variables as follows:
      • DATABASE = The name of the database instance that hosts the Sitecore data.
      • PASSWORD = Password for the system user of the Oracle instance.
      • PREFIX = Prefix for the Sitecore DMS user schema and its password (default value: 'sc').
        • Notice that user password is expected to be the same as the user name.
        • Launch Oracle_DMS70_U2_BeforeInstall.bat.
        • Review the output of the script for errors.
        • Remove the DATABASE, PASSWORD and PREFIX variables from the environment.
  7. Start Sitecore.
  8. Continue with the CMS 7.0 upgrade procedure as described above.
