New version of our Hands-On Lab available for download "Upgrade/Migrate/Consolidate to Oracle 12c" HOL

Yes! Finally ...

Roy did all the hard work and patched all our environments with the most recent PSUs. And he managed also to upload our Hands-On Lab not only internally to retriever (Oracle internally) but also to OTN.

What you'll be able to do?

  • Upgrade an 11.2.0.4 database UPGR to Oracle Database 12.1.0.2
  • Plug in UPGR into the CDB2, an Oracle Database 12.1.0.2 Container database, and make it a PDB
  • Migrate an 11.2.0.4 database FTEX into another PDB using the Full Transportable Export/Import feature
  • Unplug an Oracle Database 12.1.0.1 PDB and plug it into an Oracle Database 12.1.0.2 container database and finally upgrade it
  • And of course you can play around with the entire environment
    .

What we've did for your convenience? 

  • Switched to a new PDF viewer which allows better copy&paste - see the instructions document.
    Unfortunately we are not allowed to distribute the relatively old version of Adobe PDF Reader for Linux. 
  • Applied the most recent PSUs to the 11.2.0.4 and 12.1.0.2 homes
  • Fixed some minor things
  • Updated the HOL Instructions
  • Added an "aritificial" environment variable $OH12 to shorten typing
  • And some other tiny little things ...
  • And the lab is packaged with Oracle VBox 5.0.10 including the matching VBox Extensions which caused us trouble with the previous lab environment which was settled on Vbox 4.3 - so we hope that now all will go well.
    .

Where can you download the lab and the instructions?

All credits to Roy!!!

Thanks
