Last weekend I started the database upgrade from 10gr2 to 11gr1. As I mentioned before, I decided to manually upgrade the database. Before upgrading I already recieved an error.

Upgrade error :

*ERROR at line 1:
ORA-01722: invalid number
Have to upgrade the timezone to 4.
Current timezone :
SQL> select * from v$timezone_file;
To upgrade my timezone to version 4, I applied the following patches :
3. 5632264, NEED UPDATED TIMEZONE FILES (VERSION 4) FOR MORE DST RULE CHANGES
After upgrading the timezone I started teh upgrade again, and this time the catupgrd.sql went fine...
Today I will finish the database upgrade following metalink note 429825.1, Complete checklist for Manual Upgrade to 11gR1.
