Hi,

When installing EM, we can choose the install the repository in a database template.

If I work with Linux x86 64bit, and to work with 19c, from the Oracle site I find this template:

Template: 19.5.0.0 DB Template for EM 13.4.0.0.0 on Linux x86-64

But there is no such software 19.5.

Does somene has experience in installing EMCC13 (13.4) on 19c?

Kind Regards

Laury

    Hi,

    starting with 18c, Oracle changed the version numbering of the database

    The 2nd digit is the number of the release update (RU):

    "19.5" is the "RU October 2019", the current RU (April 2020) is "19.7"

    You can find out the RU level of your database with the following query:

    SQL> column banner_full format a75SQL> select banner_full from v$version;BANNER_FULL---------------------------------------------------------------------------Oracle Database 19c Enterprise Edition Release 19.0.0.0.0 - ProductionVersion 19.7.0.0.0

    or for the software:

    os> $ORACLE_HOME/OPatch/opatch lspatches30869156;Database Release Update : 19.7.0.0.200414 (30869156)30805684;OJVM RELEASE UPDATE: 19.7.0.0.200414 (30805684)29585399;OCW RELEASE UPDATE 19.3.0.0.0 (29585399)

    You can find out more abouts "RUs" in the MOS note "Release Update Introduction and FAQ (Doc ID 2285040.1)"

    So, to answer your question: "19.5 is 19c with Release Update 19.5 (October 2019) installed"

    I haven't tested it, but I assume that you can use the EM repository template 19.5 with 19.5 and higher versions of the database.

    HTH

    Hi,

    Thanks, butI still do not understand how this "5" of "7" is determined.

    I do guess that I could use for EM repository template 19.5 with 19.5 and higher versions of the database.

    But here is no such a version of databse to download?

    Did someone already mande an installation with this template?

    Kind Regards

    The "base release" of Oracle Database 19c is "19.3".

    Then you have to download and install the RU October 2019 and the version will become "19.5"

    (and the same for the RU April 2020, which will lead you to "19.7")

    Hi,

    For Linux Linux x86-64, I see for instance that LINUX.X64_193000_db_home.zip is available.

    This is also the highest release I can see on OTN for Linux x86-64

    I do not understand where I could get "download and install the RU October 2019"?

    Kind Regards

    Hi,

    in order to download a release update (RU) you must have  a support contract so that you log in to the support portal "My Oracle Support": https://support.oracle.com/

    Hi,

    I think I understand.

    From OTN I download the "base release", and from MOS I can download the patch that corresponds to 19.5, 19.7,...

    Kind Regards

    Hi,

    Thanks for all answers.

    I have solved the problem as follow:

    1) Install base RDBMS 19.3 software

    2) Patch the RDBMS 19.3 software to 19.5

    3) Create a 19.5 database

    Kind Regards
