I'm using MW to upgrade a test instance of 18.104.22.168 to R12.1.1. I've manually applied patch 7461070 (The AD 12.1.1 upgrade driver) since MW won't apply it. I'm applying the American English upgrade patch driver (patch 6678700) manually. It has been running for over 24 hours now. Has anyone else experienced this problem? It says there are 70012 jobs remaining and it's currently running WFXLoad.class innumerable times.
Well, I was led to note 1065393.1 which seriously helped the performance issue. That note indicates to stop the upgrade, rename the file /dev/random, and link /dev/urandom to /dev/random, then restart the upgrade. Wow, it flew after that. After I've completed this test upgrade, I'm going to have to start over from scratch to see how long it will take now.
This patch driver comes as part of R12 when you lay down the software before the upgrade.
Please see "Oracle E-Business Suite Upgrade Guide Release 11i to 12.1.1", 10. Run the American English upgrade patch driver (required)
