Kevin Hudson
Senior Director

We are pleased to announce that the Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2.8 VM Virtual Appliance is now available from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud.

You can use this appliance to create an Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2.8 Vision demonstration instance on a single, unified virtual machine containing both the database tier and the application tier.

Use with Oracle VM Manager or Oracle VM VirtualBox

This virtual appliance can be imported into Oracle VM Manager to deploy an Oracle E-Business Suite Linux 64-bit environment on compatible server-class machines running Oracle VM Server. It can also be imported into Oracle VM VirtualBox to create a virtual machine on a desktop PC or laptop.

Note: This virtual appliance is for on-premises use only. If you're interested in running Oracle E-Business Suite on Oracle Cloud, see Getting Started with Oracle E-Business Suite on Oracle Cloud (My Oracle Support Knowledge Document 2066260.1) for more information.

    soft lockup - CPU#0 stuck for 23s

    I am able to run 12.2.7 without any issues but 12.2.8 has the issue.
  • Noby Thursday, July 18, 2019
    Nope. We have not noticed. Can u please list the kernel version on 12.2.7 and 12.2.8 here ?

    Yes I am facing soft lockup - CPU#0 stuck for 23s in newly installed 12.2.8, earlier I am using same version in my desktop (i5, 16 gb ram) without any issue. In laptop having ryzen 5 and 16 gb ram, I am getting soft lockup error.
    Maybe AMD Chipset is causing problem.
    If anybody have solution. Kindly give suitable solution

    Same here. My laptop with Intel processor is working fine. My desktop with Ryzen 7 (series 1 and 2) had lockup problem. Tried with different Virtual box settings and issue still exists.

    Seems to be fundamentally broken. Kernel stuck issues.
