the creation, update, upgrade and deletion of databases.
Using manual database creation scripts, using DBCA or DBUA directly is not recommended.
ODA provided patched Clones should be used for creation and upgrades: See note 888888.1 for more information
This is an example of upgrading the database from one version to a higher version:
- from Version 188.8.131.52.170418 to 184.108.40.206.170418
- from <OLD_DB_HOME_NAME> to <NEW_DB_HOME_NAME>
* ODA HW versions V1, X3-2, X4-2, X5-2 X6-2 HA
ODA X6-2S, X6-2M, X6-2L, X7-2S and X7-2M use oda*cli commands versus using oakcli
Databases and homes created using oakcli create commands.
- Existing (source) database source and home.
- Target database home.
While the target home in this example does show an existing database, having a database in the target home is not required.
However, for debugging purposes it is recommended to pre-create the target home with a sample RAC database to confirm the target binaries and home on both nodes work as expected.
- The RAC database can be removed after confirming the database functions as expected on each node.
The example will also show steps for removing a database
The example will also include steps for collecting diagnostics to review after a successful or a failed upgrade.
