Can you migrate your EM Cloud Control Repository to another OS platform? Cross-platform and cross-Endianness?
This question sounds so incredibly simple that you won’t even start thinking I guess. Same for ourselves. Use Data Pump. Or Transportable Tablespaces. Or Full Transportable Export/Import if your source is at least 184.108.40.206 or newer.
But sometimes in life things seem to be simple, but as soon as you unmask them you’ll find a full bunch of issues. It’s a fact that the repository of EM Cloud Control is quite a bit complicated. And uses plenty of databases technologies.
Actually all credits go to Roy here as he has worked with the EM group for the past 6 months on this topic.
You can migrate a EM Cloud Control Repository cross-platform but not cross-Endianness (e.g. HP-UX to OL, big to little Endianness). The latter is scheduled to be supported in EM 13.2.
- EM Cloud Control Repository cross-hardware and/or cross-platform migration:
- EM Cloud Control Repository cross-Endianness migration is not possible right now.
Please see this link for EM 13.5 which relates to Oracle Database 19c:
As EM Cloud Control Repository migrations is possible right now only within the same Endianness group you should decide carefully where you store your EM Cloud Control Repository.
