Manual database upgrade from Oracle 12.1.0.1 to 12.1.0.2

Manual database upgrade from Oracle 12.1.0.1 to  12.1.0.2

Remark

A lot of Oracle DBA’s doesn’t use the dbua to upgrade an existing database to a new release. They would like to control the upgrade process by themselves.

Following I did an “manually upgrade” to 12.1.0.2. The upgrade based on the Oracle MOS note 1932762.1.

My test environment is OEL 6.5 and 12.1.0.1 software installation. I have a container database “CDB” and some pluggable databases “PDB1, PDB2, PDB3”.

I used this environment for my OCP 12c certification upgrade. This OCP exam actually based on the Oracle  release 12.1.0.1.

I passed the OCP exam and so I could upgrade my environment to test the new features in 12.1.0.2. :-)

 

Setup and installation of the Oracle 12.1.0.2 software

 First of all I download the Patchset from MOS

It is Patchset 17694377

Unzip the archives and create a new directory structure. Keep in mind that Oracle recommend to do an „out of place upgrade“ which means install in an new directory „structure“.


/u01/app/oracle/product/12.1.0.2/db_home1

From the temporary directory I start the installer


./runInstaller

Here are some screenshots from the software installation

runinstaller_5

The software installation was done which is the base for starting the database upgrade
