Information in this document applies to any platform.


You have upgraded your OBIEE 12c by installing a new Oracle Home, then reconfiguring the existing domain following the Upgrade Guide

The best practice, per the Installation Guide, About the Domain Home Directory, is to install the DOMAIN_HOME outside of the ORACLE_HOME.  However, if you follow a default installation, then the DOMAIN_HOME, by default is installed inside the ORACLE_HOME

For example:

Old Oracle Home ( ../middleware/Oracle_Home
New Oracle Home ( : ../middleware/Oracle_Home_12.2.1.2
Domain home: ../middleware/Oracle_Home/user_projects/domains/bi

This document describes how to deinstall the old Oracle Home without affecting the Domain directories.
