After finishing my upgrade to EM12cR2 and finally upgrading all of my agents to the 220.127.116.11.0 version, I'm going through some of the remaining post-upgrade tasks and I'm not sure about upgrading the database monitoring plugin to the 18.104.22.168.0 u120804 release. This is probably just a matter of documentation that hasn't been updated to reflect the EM12cR2 release.
In the post-upgrade documentation (http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E24628_01/upgrade.121/e22625/upgrading_10205_111_PS1_postupgrade.htm#autoId5), Table 11-1 indicates that patch 14340329 needs to be applied to the OMS-side database plugin home before upgrading to u120804, if you have upgraded to R2 from EM12c R1+BP1. The readme for patch 14340329 clearly states "Ensure that the Oracle Management Service (OMS) on which you are installing the patch or from which you are rolling back the patch is Oracle Management Service 12c Release 1 (22.214.171.124.0)." Granted, this readme is dated in July, before R2, but that has me wondering about the need for this patch or the validity of the installation directions in the readme in an R2 environment.
An OPatch prereq check on 14340329 against the OMS plugin home passed without issue, but I'm still not sure if this patch is appropriate to apply against an R2 plugin home. Has anyone successfully completed this plugin update on their upgraded EM12c system?
The issue here is that, before you upgarde your db plugin there are chances that you have applied any patches on your db plugin. In case you have any patches applied on db plugin home explicitely then while doing the plugin upgarde you can run into conflicts so to avoid that you need to apply the MLR patch14546154. In your cases you didnt i guess.. Yes the Readme is old and we have got same feedback just few days back so we are looking into how to get it fixed But the instrucstion in the guide are correct and you need to follow them.
I followed the instruction in the README file of the patch 14340329 and applied it successfully to my 126.96.36.199 OMS server, restarted the OMS successfully. However:
1) when I checked the plug-in version on the OMS server (emcli list_plugins_on_server), it shows the Version [revision} for "Oracle Database" is 188.8.131.52.
2) When I checked the plug-in version from the OEM cloud control console (from the plug-in manager page), it also shows the version 184.108.40.206, not 220.127.116.11 [u120804].
Is there any other step I need to take to upgrade the Oracle database plug-ins? Please advise.
I completed my upgrade to 18.104.22.168 and was able to deploy [u120804) to my OMS.
On the plug-ins page --> Databases --> Oracle Databases I still show the [u120804] next to latest available, latest downloaded, on management server.
I understood that the [u999999] notation means that something needs to be applied, or do I have that wrong?
The column "Management Agent with Plug-in" shows 11, and when I try to deploy to a Management Agent I can't pick any hosts.
So maybe I'm okay, but I'm unclear.
Does anyone have any information on what this should look like?
