The certification for Oracle Database 18.104.22.168 as Repository Database underneath of Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 22.214.171.124 (OMS) had been revoked for a while. One reason may have been the potential removal of the SYSMAN user during a DBUA upgrade 😉 But this is just a rumor. I don’t know the exact reasons.
After checking with the certification matrix earlier today I realized:
Oracle Database 126.96.36.199 is certified as a repository database for Cloud Control resp. OMS.
But … with a few important restrictions (see MOS Note:1987905.1 – 12c Database has been Certified as a 12cR4 Repository with Certain Patchset Restrictions):
- Database PSU April 2015 (188.8.131.52.3)OR:
- Database PSU October 2014 (184.108.40.206.1) or newer
- Database Patch 20243268 on top of the PSU
EM QUERY WITH SQL_ID 4RQ83FNXTF39U PERFORMS POORLY ON ORACLE 12C RELATIVE TO 11G
Please be aware that the above mentioned MOS Note has a typo – it refers to PSU 220.127.116.11.3 (correct) as the Oct PSU (incorrect – it’s the April 2015 one).
PS: Thanks for the anonymous comment … I wasn’t aware of the MOS Note and updated the patch requirements
