Hands-On Lab available: Upgrade to Oracle Database 12.2.0.1

Thanks to Roy – our Hands-On Lab “Upgrade, Migrate and Consolidate to Oracle Database 12.2” is now available for download from OTN.

Instructions and technical requirements are clearly documented on the OTN page as well. The lab is based on Virtual Box and can be easily imported upon download and unzip.

You can always access the lab via the blog’s top menu as well:

Hands-On Lab – Access via the Blog

Inside the lab you’ll find :

  • UPGR – an Oracle 11.2.0.4 database ready to be upgraded to Oracle Database 12.2.0.1
  • CDB2 – an Oracle 12.2.0.1 container database which  adopts the UPGR database after upgrade as a new PDB
  • FTEX – an Oracle 11.2.0.4 database ready to be migrated with Full Transportable Exp/Imp into a PDB in CDB2
  • CDB1 – an Oracle 12.1.0.2 container database – so you can test the unplug/plug/upgrade and many other things

    • Thanks Hans – I recognized it as well when showing the page last week in Milan to customers 😉
      We’ll correct it asap.

      Good catch!

      Hope all is well!

      Cheers

  1. Mike,
    This question does not pertain to the hands on lab. I created a 12.2 (RAC) CDB with one PDB, custom database. After DB creation completed, I found that DBCA did not update the /etc/oratab file. I have tested twice and same behavior. Have you come across anyone having this issue?

    Thanks,
    Arun

    • Arun,

      I haven’t seen this in my case – but so far I created only single instance databases and CDBs.
      Are you on Linux? Is it reproducible on another machine?

      Cheers
      Mike

      • Thanks Mike. I have tested on OEL 6.8 cluster. I also noticed that when I dropped a 12.2 database using DBCA, the DBCA also removed the entry for MGMTDB…!!

        I will soon get a chance to test the DBCA on an Exadata cluster. If I see something similar, I will update this thread.

        Thanks,
        Arun
