Common Questions and Answers About Upgrading

  • Q1: Is there a direct upgrade path from EBS 12.2.x to 12.2.12?
  • A1: Yes. Release 12.2.x customers can apply the EBS 12.2.12 RUP.  EBS 12.2.12 is an online patch, so it can be applied while an existing Release 12.2.x system is running.
  • Q2: Is there a direct upgrade path from Release 12.1 to Release 12.2.12?
  • A2: No. Release 12.1 customers must first upgrade to Release 12.2 before applying 12.2.12.
