    Hi Wojciech,

    the deploycluster tool is supported also for 18.4 Oracle Database release.
    Documentation is the same as 12.1/2 release and soon it will be updated (and 18.4 will be mentioned there).
    Thanks

    Ok thanks for info .

    I deployed 18.4 using 12.2 parame.init file,

    changed GI and DB home location to 18.4.0.0

    Even thought deployment tool created home in

    ../18c/... and ignored what i set .

    Any idea how to force deployment tool to use my

    naming convention for OH ? to have it similar like

    for previous version 18.4.0.0 like for 12.2.0.1

    thanks ?

    Hi Wojciech,

    to proper evaluate your issue and possible solution, please open a SR to Oracle Support on this.
    It's not feasible to debug your issue here.
    What I can say is that even 18.4 has to work as 12.2 release.
    Thanks

    Simon
