    Hi Steve,

    I'm planning an upgrade from 12.0.6 to 12.1.3. We have a pretty limited downtime window, so in the interest of saving time, I was wondering if it is possible to skip the generate portion of the 12.1.1 (7303030) and 12.1.3 (9239090) patches, and regenerating libraries, forms, reports, etc. through adadmin afterwards.

    Thanks,

    Kurt

    Kurt,

    You describe a common practice that many customers do to save time during patching. We haven't encountered any restrictions when following your approach. As long as all forms, libraries and reports generate successfully before starting the services, it should be OK.

    Hi Steve,

    I need to patch a demo R12 system 12.1.1 (installed using Rapid install CD) to the 12.1.3. What's the procedure? This is a single server instance.

    Thanks for your help


  • Max Arderius Tuesday, September 20, 2011

    Guest, you might want to verify the 12.1.3 Maintenance Pack instructions available in My Oracle Support.

    Kurt or Max,

    Please let me know, if u were able to go to 12.1.3 directly from 12.0.3 or 12.0.4.

    We are at 12.0.4 with db at 10.2.0.2.0

    Thanks


  • Steven Chan Monday, September 26, 2011

    Ram,

    No, that's not possible. You must first apply 12.1.1, and then apply 12.1.3 after that.

    Regards,

    Steven

    Hi Steve

    Do know of any or have any documents on how to proceed with an installation where my applications 12.1.3 will be installed on OEL 6.2 and my database is going to be on IBM AIX 7.1. I am not sure how to make this work with rapid install. I think I have to run the rapid install first on the AIX server then on the linux boxes ??? If so does this mean I have to download all the AIX files and the linux files for the install ???

    Thanks.

    Guest,

    Both platforms (64-bit) are certified with E-Business Suite.

    For a fresh install you need to install 12.1.1 first on the dbTier (AIX) and enter all the information for all the nodes. When the database portion completes, you need to install again in the appsTier (Linux), load the configuration file created in the dbTier Node and continue with the installation.

    For this use case, yes. You actually need to download the EBS software for AIX and for Linux. This way you can create two staging areas with the software to install on each platform.

    Additionally, if your final goal is to have 12.1.3, then you need to follow the maintenance pack instructions to upgrade to that version.

    For more information you can refer to the EBS Installation Manual and to the Installation & Update Notes for AIX and Linux.

    Thank you for the information that is what I thought I would need to do but thanks for the confirmation. I wasl looking for the EBS Installation Manual you mentioned with the AIX and Linux information but I do not see anything referencing AIX and Linux in the manual. Is this a different update ??? do you have a link...

    thanks.

    Which release after 12.1.1 coming with Rapid Install. Its really taking our efforst to first go to 12.1.1 and then upgrade.


  • Max Arderius Wednesday, May 9, 2012

    Sundeep,

    The latest version available in Rapid Install is 12.1.1. At this time, the only option to go to 12.1.3 is by applying the Maintenance Pack.

    Hi Gurus,

    We are upgrading from 11.5.10.2 (DB 11.2) to 12.1.3(DB 11.2). Since our DB version remains same, our intention is that 1st rapidwiz shouldn't touch the 11g oracle home.

    But When I run rapidwiz to layout R12 filesystem will it override existing 11h home? I got this information from my colleague.

    Also during first run since rapidwiz run autoconfig, that means it will connect to existing database. How can I prevent that?

    Thanks,

    Rishi

    Rishi,

    During the upgrade, you run rapidwiz twice. The first time, to lay down the new file system, and a second time after the upgrade is complete to run the complete configuration.

    The configuration performed by the first rapidwiz execution, is minimal and serves the purpose of creating basic configuration files. (Only the second rapidwiz run runs an end-to-end Autoconfig configuration, recreating the topology model and updating other tables.)

    After this first execution, the original Oracle Home should continue to be operational. If you are experiencing a different behavior, I would suggest to contact Oracle Support for more guidance.

    Thanks!

    Max

    Dear All,

    I am planning to migrate R12 12.1.1 from 32-bit linux to 64-bit linux.

    I have already upgraded database 11gR2 to 64-bit linux.

    I am little-bit confused to migrate 12.1.1 to 64 bit.

    As per DOC 471566.1, what should i do.

    I am trying to copy APPL_TOP & COMM_TOP to 64-bit OS, and need to install Oracle 10.1.2 and 10.1.3 as "./rapidwiz -appstack" or "./rapidwiz -techstack" ????

    OR, is there any otherway, kindly suggests.

    Thanks

    Asif

    Hi

    We're planning to upgrade from R11.5 to R12.1.1. I would like to know if we just have to replace the old R11.5 start CD by this new one before running Rapid Install, or should we perform any additional tasks.

    Any comment would be very helpful.

    Thanks
