Problems migrating JIRA DB from Oracle 10g to Oracle 11g

Hello,

We are migrating JIRA from 4.0.1 version to 5.0.6

For that, we have installed a new machine with a fresh installation of JIRA 5 and a new DB in Oracle 11g. Once installed, we have restored the 10g DB into the 11g server and pointed JIRA to that Database.

At the JIRA start, the migration proccess has begun. Now I have an almost fully working environment. I'm seeing these errors in catalina.out in the moment of making a Reindex:

)

)

The Index proccess never ends.

I've found this unresolved issue but I'm not sure if it applies in my case or not: https://studio.plugins.atlassian.com/browse/JTOOL-81

Hello,

As a general note as this might help in similar issues:

As seen here https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA050/Migrating+JIRA+to+Another+Server

"This is a two-step process. You will need to use this procedure to upgrade to JIRA 4.4.x first before you can upgrade to JIRA 5.0.x. See the JIRA 5.0 Upgrade Notes for details."


In general, it is a good idea to keep all variables (db server, OS) stable when upgrading and making it a two-step process. So, migration should be one process (keeping the same JIRA version) and upgrade could be another process (on that same server). It might save us some grief. ;-)

In case one gets more specific issues, then contacting Atlassian Support is the next step.
