HOW TO UPGRADE FROM GOLDENGATE CLASSIC EXTRACT TO INTEGRATED EXTRACT DOC ID 1484313.1

 

 

APPLIES TO:

Oracle GoldenGate - Version 11.2.1.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
 

GOAL

 Steps to upgrade a Goldengate classic extract to integrated extract

SOLUTION

 To run integrated extract  in  11.2.1 Goldengate , the following requirements should be met
 1.Oracle RDBMS must be 11.2.0.3 or higher
 and
 2.You must apply the RDBMS(Database) patches as suggested in the below MOS document

  NOTE:1411356.1 - 11.2.0.3 Database specific bundle patch for Integrated Extract 11.2.x

The redo compatibility should be set to 11.2.0.3 matching the db version.

3. NOTE: STEP 3 IS SPECIFIC TO RAC ENVIRONMENTS AND OGG VERSIONS 11.2.1.0.23+. If using OGG version prior to 11.2.1.0.23 step 3 can be skipped.

To overcome below bug 18103455 OGG versions 11.2.1.0.23+ introduces a new TRANLOPTIONS option PREPAREFORUPGRADETOIE and a change to the procedure for switching from classic to integrated Extract.

Bug 18103455 – Replicat abends with “WARNING OGG-01154  SQL error 1403 mapping” because of missing data that extract skipped during a change from classic Extract to Integrated Extract.

A) For a running extract, issue the following command:
SEND extract tranlogoptions prepareforupgradetoie

B) For a stopped extract, start it after adding the following line to the parameter file:

TRANLOGOPTIONS PREPAREFORUPGRADETOIE

C) Monitor the ggserr.log file or corresponding extract report file for an INFO GG-01873 message indicating the the change has taken affect and that you can proceed with the upgrade.

Example from report file:
2014-06-05 17:06:09  INFO    OGG-01873  The parameter TRANLOGOPTIONS PREPAREFORUPGRADETOIE has taken effect. Proceed to the next step in the upgrade process.

Example from ggserr.log file:
2014-06-05 17:06:09  INFO    OGG-01873  Oracle GoldenGate Capture for Oracle, src.prm:  The parameter TRANLOGOPTIONS PREPAREFORUPGRADETOIE has taken effect.

For the INFO message to show up extract has to process a committed transaction on all the RAC nodes for a table being captured. As an alternative a dummy table can be added

to the extract parameter file and doing DML on this table from all the threads would give extract commit boundary current checkpoints for all the threads

D) Once said message is detected, Stop the extract, perform dblogin, and alter for conversion to Integrated as shown below

4.Connect to the Extract database, and grant the following priviege to GG Admin user


SQL>exec dbms_goldengate_auth.grant_admin_privilege('')
Login into GGSCI

•Check to see if upgrade possible

GGSCI> DBLOGIN USERID PASSWORD

GGSCI> INFO UPGRADE

GGSCI>stop extract
GGSCI>dblogin userid ,password
