Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Updating the Oracle home for database using 'UPDATE_DB' option of emcli db_software_maintenance verb succeeds.
Navigating to Monitoring Configuration page for database still shows the Old Oracle home. But the database target is relocated to new oracle home and is updated in target host.

From Enterprise Manager navigate to Enterprise > Provisioning and Patching > Procedure Activity.
Now expand following steps:

Update or Switches Oracle Instances > Switch Oracle Database > For all hosts : Steps for destination Oracle homes > test.oracle.com > Update Oracle Home property.

The overall step shows success, though following errors are seen:

Oracle Home property for target db7254 updated to /refresh/home/oracle/prod/db/12102fleetbase/fleethme1
ERROR: ORA-20221: set_target_property(...): The current user [FLEET1] does not have CONFIGURE_TARGET privileges to perform this operation.

ORA-06512: at line 1
