Upgrading ODI 18.104.22.168 repository to 12c:
As I had promised to post a write up on upgrading ODI 11g repository to 12c, today we will discuss on all the steps from beginning till we make the upgradation successful.
I would also wish to divvy up the troubles I faced during upgradation ( couldn’t start ua.bat ), But Thanks to David for reminding me about the OPatch that needs to be applied after doing successful installation. You can refer this link to know what we discussed on Linkedin.
You can find this patch in the folder that you had downloaded from OTN. If you can see it, then call the OPtach.bat file available in Oracle_Home\OPatch directory. Don’t forget to go though the readme.txt provided in the patch folder. Once this is successful, call ua.bat file present in D:\Oracle\Middleware\Oracle_Home\oracle_common\upgrade\bin location.
Keep in mind that the most important thing is , you have a complete backup of master and work repository. I was also unsuccessful in my 1st attempt. But my backup saved me. :). Okay, here you go.
Note down the upgrade key and save it in notepad. This will be used for future reference
Once I logged into the upgraded repository, I found all my projects available without any issues/missing references.
So Congratulation for the good work you have done !!
Feel free to ask me if you face any issues during the process. Have a good day and see you in my next post.
