Can Oracle Restart (Standalone Grid Infrastructure) manage databases/resources from lower versions? (Doc ID 2435534.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 16, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 12.1.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

This document clarifies whether or not Oracle Restart can manage lower version of databases/resources.

As per the documentation (link below), Oracle Restart cannot manage a lower version database.

/*
6.5.2 Installing Oracle Grid Infrastructure for a Standalone Server for an Existing Database
Follow the high-level instructions in this section to install Oracle Grid Infrastructure for a standalone server and configure it for an existing Oracle database. Oracle Restart can only manage existing release 12.1 resources and hence you can install Oracle Grid Infrastructure for a standalone server only for an existing release 12.1 database. However, Oracle database releases before 12.1 can coexist on the same server without being managed by Oracle Restart.
