New Slide Decks Uploaded:
Upgrade/Migrate/Consolidate to Oracle 12c and
Parallel Multitenant Upgrade Internals

It’s time for a few updates and slide uploads 🙂 And thanks again to all the great people in Madrid earlier this week. It was a fantastic day – I enjoyed it a lot and wish you all successful upgrades and migrations 🙂

What’s new?

  • A refreshed version of our huge Oracle Database 12c “Upgrade, Migrate & Consilidate” slide deck. Now with 530 slides – kudos to Tom Kyte who gave me a lot of food for thought after his excellent talk at the DB TECH SHOWCASE 2014 TOKYO. I had to add a few slides later on making it now even harder to fit the content into a 1 day workshop 🙂
    As usual see the Change Log at the end of the deck about what has been added/changed.

  • A new and extended version of Joe Errede‘s OOW talk about how an Oracle Multitenant Upgrade works. All details about the parallel upgrade, options and tweaks of So kudos to Joe as he has build the basis for the slides – I reused many of them and added some stuff – and thanks to the (always) great audience at DOAG Conference in Nuernberg 🙂
  •  A refreshed version of the Hitchhiker’s Guide especially prepared for the (amazingly) huge audience at the DOAG Conference in Nuernberg (I was really impressed!!)

  1. Hi Mike / Upgrade team,

    At the outset, let me clarify that this comment is not relevant to the above post. I am posting this comment here, as the blogpost on this blog for which I have a query is an old one and comments are disabled for that.

    I stumbled upon a this blogpost – – and have a query in respect of this. Is the RMAN incremental backup option to reduce downtime supported for E-Business Suite databases (reading 1311487.1, I understand it is not).

    We are planning migrating our EBS database from AIX to Exadata, and are looking to having an optimum migration method with minimum downtime.



  2. Rakesh,

    thanks for your note. And let me check this.
    I see what you mean – and the MOS Note you are refering to hasn’t been changed since over a year now.

    I’ll come back as soon as I have some good information about if this is still true – and why.


  3. Rakesh,

    I have chatted with the experts for EBS migrations.

    First of all, there’s a new Note out that about xTTS/EBS migrations I would like to share with you:

    Using Transportable Tablespaces to Migrate Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.0 or 12.1 Using Oracle Database 12c Release 1 Enterprise Edition (Note 1945814.1)

    The reason why xTTS for EBS WITH RMAN INC BACKUPS is currently not certified is the constraints of rebuilding the SYSTEM tablespace. It is not see as a huge relief to decrease the downtime to add RMAN Inc Backups to the xTTS migration for an EBS database. If you’d like to need further information you may please contact me directly via email – but then I’d like to know who the customer is.

    Thanks 🙂

  4. Mike,
    I want to perform manual upgrade from to I am looking for a note like 837570.1 which pertains to 11g manual upgrade. When I had upgraded from 10g to 11g, this note had helped me a lot. I cannot seem to find anything similar for 12c. Will appreciate it greatly if you can help in finding something.


  5. Arun,

    I think this is the note you are looking for:
    MOS Note: 1503653.1
    Complete Checklist for Manual Upgrades to Oracle Database 12c Release 1 (12.1)

    Hope this helps – cheers
