A few weeks ago, on June 29, 2020, I delivered an Upgrade Web Seminar for the MEA region. Thanks a lot if your participated. And today I’d like to share with you for this Web Seminar MEA – Recap, Slides, Recording and Answers.
Thanks to those who found the time to participate. I enjoyed the hour a lot. And thanks also to my colleagues from Oracle Dubai who set up the session and handled the registration and the logistics.
You can download the slides for this session as usual from the Slides Download Center on the blog. Scroll down to “Web Seminar for MEA“:

Questions and Answers
These were the questions we collected during the 60 minutes. As it was a live (and not recorded) seminar, I were not able to answer your questions while talking. But here are the answers:
|1||Oracle started frequent qurterly releases. How confident is Oracle that these releases are bug free? We are upgrading to 19.7 and facing bugs in database restore which is acknowledged by Oracle now as a bug and yet to release the patch. How can Oracle in such scenarios? Should we safely go with n-1 release?||There is no such thing as “bug free” software. And clearly “no” to your approach of n-1 – take 19.7 or 19.8. It may happen that you will need to apply the one or another one-off on top of it. But we have a good number of customers live on these Release Updates.|
|2||Is there any autoupgrade.jar that works for MS windows platform? Or it is just for Linux?||AutoUpgrade works on all database platforms where you can install an Oracle Server. So yes, Windows is included here.|
|3||Is internet connection needed for auto Upgrade?||No, AutoUpgrade does not require any internet connection. Neither does it download anything nor does it send any data anywhere.|
|4||Is there any recommendations to upgrade E-Business Suite DB to 19.7?||I tried to collect the necessary EBS links and information regarding upgrades here:
|5||Is this Presentation to be shared to customeres?||Yes, please find the slides here:

|6||Is AWS RDS Upgrade from 12c to 19c will internally use autoupgrade.jar, please clarify.||This is a question you need to ask the RDS team – but I hope so 🙂|
|7||I need information on Upgrade path from 22.214.171.124 to 19.7.0 in a EBS 12.2.8 application environment.||I tried to collect the necessary EBS links and information regarding upgrades here:
|8||What is the downtime for the auto upgrade?||Please see:

For the monitoring of my SR 3-23505371101:
To Maintain a logical Standby Database when adding a new PDB in the primary CDB
=> answer :
we have to create an empty PDB in the logical standby CDB and use the package DBMS_LOGSTDBY.INSTANTIATE_TABLE for the tables (+ create the indexes).
This limitation is due to the redo from SYS not supported for SQL Apply and hence skipped.
Thanks for the update – I was not aware.
