    Basic questions on upgrade from 12.1.1 to 12.2

    3050282

      I am working on my first upgrade(test)  from 12.1.1 to 12.2 on linux.

       

      Node A - only apps tier  (no oracle user on this)

      Node B - only DB tier    (no applmgr user on this server)

       

      * DB already upgraded from 11.1.7  to 11.2.0.4

       

      Now, I would like to upgrade apps tier.  Staged software also.

       

      (1) Now first, rapidwiz should be from apps node ? as a root user ?

      ...  then later should I also have to run rapidwiz from DB node also ?

       

      (2) any suggestions for hosts file.  Shoud I remove localhost line ?

      [root@apps ~]# cat /etc/hosts

      127.0.0.1      localhost.localdomain      localhost

      192.168.100.116      apps.localdomain      apps

      192.168.100.114      appsdb.localdomain      appsdb

       

      ..Thanks

          Hello

           

          (1) Now first, rapidwiz should be from apps node ? as a root user ?

          ...  then later should I also have to run rapidwiz from DB node also ?

          You need to run in only apps node as DB is already supported version.

           

          (2) any suggestions for hosts file.  Shoud I remove localhost line ?

          [root@apps ~]# cat /etc/hosts

          127.0.0.1      localhost.localdomain      localhost

          192.168.100.116      apps.localdomain      apps

          192.168.100.114      appsdb.localdomain      appsdb

           

          You need to keep the localhost else Installation may fail.

            you can not remove localhost entries as it always used for loopback address

                Oracle recommends using the latest startCD (currently 12.2.0.50 - Patch 21055525) to install or upgrade to Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2.0.


                Use the latest startCD

                  This seems to be a screenshot from a Vision install, not from an upgrade process. Which are you performing ? You will have to provide the name of the database server in the first field

                    Thanks Srini,

                      Yes it is a Vision instance, selected upgrade option after running rapidwiz from appstier. 1st fied contains DB hostname.

                        Hi,

                         

                        I am not sure but you may need to download webtier utilities. But i can confirm this to you by tomorrow.

                         

                        u can raise an sr as well for the same.

                         

                        thanks,

                          Hi,

                           

                          If you are going to use startCD 50 then you should download the 11.1.1.7 FMW files and recreate the stage area.

                           

                          Check the permissions on the folder mentioned by the error message.

                          Using startCD 50 could fix this problem but this is not guaranteed.

                           

                          Regards,

                            I downloaded startCD50 & 11.1.1.7 FMW

                            when I run rapidwiz. it gives me same error 

                            rw-00000 unable to write .... eventhough full permissions are in place for /tmp
