Ours is a software appliance and it is a basic upgrade situation. We are upgrading to 7.1.1 on the same server on which 7.0.2 version was deployed.

I am following the document - "Upgrade and Migration Guide 7.1.1" for upgrading from 7.0.2 to 7.1.1.


I believe running the (page 33) upgrades the software and does the migration as well.


During the execution of I could see that the migration was happening.

Also after the script completed the execution, I confirmed that migration has indeed been completed by checking the "/home/oracle/database/log/migrate.log".

At this point the application is up and everything seems fine.

My question is-

Is the step "Import the RSA-Supplied Database Backup and Migrate the Database" in page 35 required at all in my case?

I did back up the Database but that was as a safety measure and don't see a point to re-import it again and run migrate on it just because the document has these steps.
