Today, I am going to show you how to upgrade 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199 in rapid way ( you can apply the same process with 188.8.131.52 )
Maybe as start point you have to check following post where you can find all new features of the release and what is supported.
Yoooo, today is great day to start testing on a upgrade from low version and all new features.
I will try to give you more and more on the features testing and how to implement it
This morning one of my colleagues "Birata" just ask me "How to apply OCW patch on database home"?
Download new Opatch version and update oracle home on destination home for patching
- Patch # 6880880 - Select a Release: 11.2 - https://updates.oracle.com/download/6880880.html
Create OCM Response file to Apply a Patch in Silent Mode
- How to Create an OCM Response file to Apply a Patch in Silent Mode - opatch silent (Doc ID 966023.1)
- Download Patch 21523375 - Oracle Grid Infrastructure Patch Set Update 184.108.40.206.8 (Oct2015) (Includes Database PSU 220.127.116.11.8) from Metalink and upload on destination server for patching
I am very happy to share my patching process on the testing system, as preparation for production patching.
I have the following architecture:
Two node Oracle RAC Cluster 12c without any PSU - just 18.104.22.168.0 :)
----- full details will be added soon in the next posts.
Start with the patching
- Response file creation
- Apply Patch
Prior to the actual start of the patching, it is very important to check target Patch level and current patch level for possible conflicts by using Oracle Support site/metalink or via opatch tool
I did Metalink checks prior to the actual start and all checks passed successfully.
Also, an important step is to download the latest OPatch tool from Metalink, which will further help you to resolve a lot of issues or conflicts during the patching.
As per the below command, I am going to apply patch in rolling mode. If that is not specified - nonrolling opatchauto will be started in rolling mode by default.
In my case, I am going to resolve a few issues and help you understand how.
Bulgarian Oracle Users are forbidden for free credits!
Very reasonable question, Why? what is the reason for such message ?
BGOUG is very useful group but without having free credits to test Oracle cloud how we can be up-to-date and able to recommend cloud for customer which we are supporting or even for new customer?
------ several days later
I keep this topic open for discussions!
