most people said just make a backup of /etc/system and check afterwards.

Julie Lynch said
You should notate the values of the shared memory and semaphores.  If the
upgrade resets these values to something lower than what they are right
now, it is a good possibility the database(s) will crash.  Hopefully your
DBA will be around when you do these hardware/OS upgrades.

Thanks all
