I will blog about this today.
I was planning on using autoupgrade on my AIX server to go from 12c to 19c. I have everything ready to go and got this message when running the latest version of autoupgrade (Nov 2021) in analyze mode:
“AutoUpgrade is not fully tested on IBM J9 VM, Oracle recommends to use Java HotSpot(TM)”.
What are your thoughts on continuing with autoupgrade on this server? I put in a SR for clarification but I would also like to hear your thoughts.
at first, this is just a warning and should cause no harm.
Second, are you using the java from the 19c home (meaning, do you set your environment to 19c and then execute autoupgrade with your config file in analyze mode)?
If not, please try it out.
