Hi all ,

Due to the fact that OEM release 13.4 is available since a couple of days I would like to ask if anybody has already upgraded OEM from release 13.3 to release 13.4. I would like to perform this upgrade asap - but I haven't found anything yet in Oracle's Metalink about how to perform this upgrade.

Any help will be appreciated.

best regards

Jan

    Hi Jan,

    The EM 13.4 docs and Release notes are live @ https://docs.oracle.com/en/enterprise-manager/cloud-control/enterprise-manager-cloud-control/13.4/index.html

    The Upgrade checklist in MOS is yet to get published. Will keep you posted once it is ready.

    Best Regards,

    Hi Venkata,

    I am not sure should I expose SR in the community. There is a lot of info in it.

    What you mean "validate the status."

    Regards,

    Nikolay

    Hi Nikolay,

    No issues.

    I have seen a case where the Upgrade process had issues at patching operation due to the ulimit values.

    Make sure the nproc value is set to 65536.

    Best Regards,

    We are under windows.

    I can share a piece of the error log:

    Agent version is actually 13, but directory name left intact from the previous upgrade process.

    Hi,

    Are you performing the upgrade with Software-Only option with plugins OR direct upgrade?

    Best Regards,
