We are pleased to announce that Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2.6 is now available.

Instructions for downloading and applying this latest release update pack (RUP) for the EBS 12.2 codeline can be found here:

What Does Release 12.2.6 Include?

As a consolidated suite-wide patchset, this RUP includes new features, statutory and regulatory updates, and enhancements for stability, performance, and security.

Release 12.2.6 is cumulative. That means that as well as providing new updates for this release, it also includes updates that were originally made available as one-off patches for earlier 12.2 releases.

For a complete list of new features, refer to:

Common Questions and Answers About Upgrading

  • Q: Is there a direct upgrade path from EBS 12.0 to 12.2.6?
    A: No. Release 12.0 customers must first upgrade to Release 12.2 before applying 12.2.6.
  • Q: Is there a direct upgrade path from EBS 12.2 to 12.2.6?

    Does Oracle plan on releasing Oracle EBS 12.2.6 (and in fact 12.2.5) as pre-built Virtual Appliances on eDelivery?

    Currently there is only 12.1.3, 12.2.3 and 12.2.4 available.



  • Robert Farrington Friday, September 30, 2016

    Hi Craig,

    Oracle Cloud (OPC) templates have been prioritized over virtual box templates. We will continue to monitor demand for virtual box templates, but can make no commitment at present.

    EBS 12.2.5 and 12.2.6 images are available to run on OPC. Go to cloud.oracle.com/marketplace and search on 'e-business'. Please refer to Getting Started with EBS on Oracle Cloud (MOS Doc ID 2066260.1) for more information.

    I am a big fan of Virtual Appliances. Quick and easy to install.

    I always Prefer to maintain a local copy of the instance that is available all the times even when there is no internet access. Appreciate if Oracle release it for 12.2.6

  • guest Monday, November 28, 2016

    Please release 12.2.6 VM images. These are great learning tools.

  • Steven Chan Monday, November 28, 2016

    Hello, Harish, Guest,

    I'm glad to hear that you've been finding our VM images useful. I've passed your feedback on to the team that produces these templates. I'll post a new blog article with details when new VM templates are released.

    Dear All,

    Can anyone tell me the exact purpose and the meaning of startCD?

    I am new to Oracle Apps DBA



  • Robert Farrington Wednesday, December 7, 2016

    Hi Vijay,

    Use of the startCD is explained in Chapter 1, "Getting Started", of "Oracle E-Business Suite Installation Using Rapid Install". This book is available in PDF and HTML formats from the Oracle E-Business Suite Documentation Web Library (http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E26401_01/index.htm).

    Need to evaluate between R12.2.6 and R12.2.7 hence please let know where we can find the list of bugs fixed in R12.2.6 and R12.2.7 so that we can opt the stable version between (R12.2.6/R12.2.7) for upgrading our existing EBS R12.2.4
