(Doc ID 2315019.1)
Last updated on OCTOBER 09, 2019
Oracle WebCenter Content - Version 126.96.36.199.0 to 188.8.131.52.0 [Release 11g to 12c] Information in this document applies to any platform.
This Knowledge Note will provide example steps to upgrade a WebCenter Content server 11g to version 184.108.40.206.0. The same steps can be applied to 220.127.116.11 as well.
If you are upgrading from a previous version of WCC 12c, then use Note 2309958.1
Note: This will cover only the WCC Content Server, Inbound Refinery, and URM domains. Not domains that also have other managed servers in them such as IPM, WebCenter Portal, or Capture.
However, in a multi application domain, these upgrade steps are essentially the same. In addition to installing the WCC media, the media for the other applications are also required to be installed as part of step C.
Refer to the online documentation below for more information about upgrading URM.
IMPORTANT: Folders_g is no longer available in 18.104.22.168 and later as mentioned in the following 22.214.171.124 release notes. Folders_g must be migrated to Framework Folders prior to upgrading to 126.96.36.199. If Folders_g is enabled, the upgrade will not proceed. It will fail during readiness check (Step E) and during the Examine phase of schema upgrade (Step F).
