EM Cloud Control 12.1.0.4 (or newer) OMS Repository certified with Oracle Database 12.1.0.2 plus patches

The certification for Oracle Database 12.1.0.2 as Repository Database underneath of Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12.1.0.4 (OMS) had been revoked for a while.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:

Cloud Control Repository Database Certification Oracle 12.1.0.2

Oracle Database 12.1.0.2 is certified as a repository database for Cloud Control resp. OMS.

But … with a few important restrictions (see MOS Note:1987905.112c Database has been Certified as a 12cR4 Repository with Certain Patchset Restrictions):

  • Database PSU April 2015 (12.1.0.2.3)OR:
  • Database PSU October 2014 (12.1.0.2.1) or newer
  • Database Patch 20243268 on top of the PSU
    • Bug20243268:
      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 12.1.0.2.3 (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
