To upgrade Forms/Reports from 12.2.1.2 to 12.2.1.4 and migrating from OL7 to RHEL8

Source Environment:

node1: forms/reports on OL7 version 12.2.1.2

node2: metadata oracle db on OL7


Target Environment: As a weblogic cluster on node1 and node 2 on RHEL8 platform with version 12.2.1.4

node1: forms/reports on RHEL8 version 12.2.1.4

node2: forms/reports on RHEL8 version 12.2.1.4

node3: metadata oracle db on RHEL8


Per earlier updates from Oracle on the SR raised, we cannot move across platform from OL7 to RHEL8.

Also, it seems, there is no REPORTS component in 12.2.1.4 binaries as reports is decomissioned in 12.2.1.3, in this case, should we first install 12.2.1.3 directly on RHEL8 server and then upgrade it to 12.2.1.4 on RHEL8 ???


Considering above points.. Kindly confirm, if below approach should work ?? OR we are safe to install forms/reports 12.2.1.4 directly on RHEL8 ??


1.Install WebLogic Server version 12.2.1.3 on the application nodes (node1 and node2).

2.Create database schemas by using the Repository Creation Utility (RCU).

3.Install Oracle Forms and Reports on node1 and node2.

4.Create and configure the Forms and Reports domain on node1.

5.Conduct post-installation tasks on node1.

6.Use WebLogic pack and unpack commands to join node2 to the clustered domain on node1.

7.Conduct post-installation tasks on node2.

8.Configure Forms and Reports to use the HTTP server.

9.Then upgrade forms/reports to 12.2.1.4
