Upgrading Your EBS Database to 19c on OCI Exadata DB Systems

Terri Noyes
Product Management Director

We are pleased to be able to share newly available Oracle Database 19c upgrade procedures for EBS customers running on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) with either Oracle Database or on an Exadata DB System.

Note that this is a follow-on to the previous article Additional Support for EBS on OCI with Database 19c. If you have not already read that article, we suggest you do so first.

Upgrade Process

Before performing the database upgrade, your Exadata DB System must be on Oracle Linux 7 and Oracle Grid Infrastructure 19c.

The key steps in the upgrade are as follows:

  1. Install Oracle Database 19c on your Oracle Exadata DB System.
  2. Perform the necessary pre-upgrade steps.
  3. Upgrade your database to Oracle Database 19c (using the dbaascli cloud tooling).
  4. Perform the necessary post-upgrade steps.
  5. Run AutoConfig on all database tier nodes.
  6. Run AutoConfig on all application tier nodes.
  7. Apply the latest database release update.

Upgrade Documents

The procedure you will use for the database upgrade is specific to the EBS and database release versions you are starting from. Choose whichever of these four documents applies to you:

Cloud Manager Compatibility Actions

Be aware that to continue using Cloud Manager to manage your environment after this database upgrade, you need to perform the following actions:

  1. Upgrade Cloud Manager to Version
  2. Run the refreshExaDBMetadata.pl script to update the Cloud Manager metadata.

For more information, see Section 4.5.6, Upgrading to Oracle Database 19c, of Getting Started with Oracle E-Business Suite on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (MOS Note 2517025.1), and Section 3.11, Refresh Metadata for an Environment Upgraded to Oracle Database 19c, of Managing the Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager Virtual Machine (MOS Note 2434008.1).
