Everything that Al said and making sure that you take backup at every step. You can get the details steps required if you do a little search either here in this forum or the Oracle community.
It is not the Tools Upgrade that causes issues but the custom setups (you don't know) which causes the issue. Like that weird entry hidden in one of the ini's who nobody knew existed until you did the upgrade OR that sucker LOCK on the SYS folder/LIB even after you seem to have stopped everything you knew in JDE.
But hey at the end of it I am sure you would have lot of fun .... good luck!
Also - you need to be aware that the installation of Tools Release 18.104.22.168 and above is actually performed on the Server Manager Console for the Deployment Server these days. Its very different from what Al stated (that is for prior to 22.214.171.124 tools releases). You'll need to update your server manager console first, together with all the agents AND install a server manager agent on the deployment server to be able to update from 126.96.36.199 onwards. Also - Server Manager Console now requires either Weblogic or Websphere, and it doesn't come packaged with OC4J anymore. So its a major update if you didn't "optionally" use weblogic in the 9.1.x versions. Everyone was warned for several years ahead of the 9.2 tools release !!!
You'll need to backup everything, and you should look at using multifoundation to push out your tools release. Good luck. Get a consultant in who does this all the time to ensure you don't screw up your production environment !!!!
