New AutoUpgrade version 20211115 (Nov 2021) available for download

Yesterday at DOAG conference I announced it already in our Upgrade and Migration Round Table – and just a few hours later my team mates made the New AutoUpgrade version 20211115 (Nov 2021) available for download.

How to download AutoUpgrade?

Always download the most recent version of AutoUpgrade via MOS Note: 2485457.1 – AutoUpgrade Tool.

Just click on this link in the MOS Note:AutoUpgrade Nov 2021

Why do you need a new version?

A good number of issues being logged to us via blogs, tweets, SRs and eMails can be solved with the current version of AutoUpgrade. So please check your installed version:

$ java -jar autoupgrade.jar -version

build.version 21.2.210721
build.hash 680914c 2021/07/21 11:14:54
build.max_target_version 21
build.supported_target_versions 12.2,18,19,21
build.type production

In this case, I will need to download the newer version since the is older than the newest one on MOS. Simply copy the downloaded version into your $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin directory and overwrite the previous version.
