Hands-On-Lab “Upgrade, Migrate & Consolidate to Oracle Database 12c” available for DOWNLOAD now!

Wow … that was a hard piece of work. Roy put a lot of effort into getting our Hands-On-Lab on OTN for download. We promised to have it available after OOW – or at least a description how to create it by yourself. And finally it’s there. Find it here:

A few important things to mention before you start the download:

  • It’s a Virtual Box image
  • You will need to install Oracle Virtual Box first – and please install also the VBox Extensions
  • Your PC must have a 64-bit host operating system
  • You need to enable Virtualization options in your computer’s BIOS
  • You PC should have at least 4GB of RAM – having 8GB is very helpful
  • A fast disk (SSD) will speed up things
  • The instructions are available for download but are included in the download as well
  • The lab will guide you through the following tasks:
    1. Upgrade an 11.2.0.4 database to Oracle 12.1.0.2
    2. Plug in this database into a 12.1.0.2 CDB
    3. Migrate an 11.2.0.4 database with Full Transportable Export into another PDB
    4. Unplug an 12.1.0.1 PDB and plug/upgrade it into an 12.1.0.2 CDB

You’ll find a picture as screen background inside the VBox image always giving you guidance about “what to accomplish” and “how to switch environments”.

Enjoy 🙂

–Mike
