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?
Just click on this link in the MOS Note:
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 build.date 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 build.date 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.
What’s new in the November 2021 version?
At the bottom of the MOS note you’ll find the change.log file listing all the enhancements, changes and fixes. In this case it lists:
