Oracle Database certification on Microsoft Windows 10

The MOS Note: 1307195.1  about

Certification Information for Oracle Database on Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit)

got updated right before the 2015 Christmas holidays with the official certification information for Oracle Database 12c on Microsoft Windows 10.

And it says:

Windows 10 O/S Information:
RAC is not certified.
The earliest release certified on Windows 10 is 12.1.0.2.

If you have upgraded already or plan to upgrade to Microsoft Windows 10 in the near (or later) future, you may find this Statement Of Direction by Oracle regarding Microsoft Windows 10 certification quite useful:

In summary:

  • Oracle plans to certify Oracle Database 12.1.0.2 by October 2015
  • Oracle plans to certify the next major version of the database as well on MS Win 10 - 64bit

MS Windows Bundle Patches - a VERY different story

I like Upgrade Workshops for a very different reason:
Hopefully people feed back with questions and information I wasn't aware off before. So for myself these workshops are also a learning experience. And thanks to a customer in Singapore (Thanks a lot, Hanh!!) I learned something about Oracle's Bundle Patches for MS Windows.

Customer asked about a specific issue when using RMAN Duplicate command in 12c failing with a nice ORA-600 [KSRPCSEXEC_1]. This got logged a while ago as bug16883554 - and it will be fixed in database patch set 12.1.0.2. But this customer asked for an earlier delivery.

So after a quick check of the SR and the bug it was clear that this patch will be also included for the MS Windows platform into the Bundle Patch 12.1.0.1.4 on Win.
Well, my first thought: Ouch! That will be the July 2014 PSU.

But in fact it isn't meant here. So I learned that on Windows patching runs on a different schedule and notation. 

MOS Note:161549.1 will tell you all the details about:
Oracle Database, Networking and Grid Agent Patches for Microsoft Platforms

64-Bit x64 Patches :
