You will need the following files:

The UpgradeCMS660_oracle.zip file contains two files:

Upgrade steps for the CMS databases:

  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 score (the actual name depend on the value of the PREFIX environment variable) database.
    If your user schema names are different or if you have additional Sitecore user schema, modify the batch file as necessary (but do not add the analytics, master or web schemas – it uses a different database schema and should not be upgraded).
  4. Shut down Sitecore.
  5. Back up your Sitecore schemas.
  6. Upgrade your 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 user schemas and their passwords (default value: 'sc').
      • Notice that user passwords are expected to be the same as the user names.
      • Launch Oracle_CMS72_U2_AfterInstall.sql.
      • 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 7.2 upgrade procedure as described above.
