Applies to:

Oracle Fusion Middleware - Version to [Release 12c]
Oracle HTTP Server - Version to [Release 12c]

Upgrade Environment Requirements

Example Environment
Node 1: WLS 11g Domain with Adminserver
Node 2: Standalone OHS 11g associated to Domain on node 1

This is a common setup for Enterprise Deployments.

While upgrading OHS 11g to 12c, Upgrade Assistant (UA) fails upgrading the domain component configurations with:

Reading /Oracle/Middleware/user_projects/domains/base_domain/opmn/topology.xml
Instance home: /Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_WT1/instances/instance1
Instance id: instance1
System component named ohs1 of type OHS IS a candidate for upgrade
Instance home: /Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_WT1/instances/instance2
Instance id: instance2
System component named ohs2 of type OHS IS a candidate for upgrade
System component 12 to 11 mappgings
ohs1 maps to ohs1 in /Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_WT1/instances/instance1
ohs2 maps to ohs2 in /Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_WT1/instances/instance2
