    Install  EBS 12.2.7

    Beauty_and_dBest

      Hi ALL,

       

      I download EBS Installer 12.2.0 and 12.2.7 and patch with startCD 51, then run buildStage.sh.

      Below is the output:

      Then I run rapidwiz to install EBS. But the output is 12.2.0

      Capture.GIF

      How do I convert  it to 12.2.7?

       

      Kind regards,

      jc

          Hi jc,

           

          Just like every other 12.2 installation, you get 12.2.0 from rapidwiz and have to upgrade to 12.2.7 by following the 12.2.7 Readme.

            Thanks Michael,

             

            I understand we downloaded 12.2.7 and 12.2.0.

            I thought the buildStage was responsible to merge it to full-pledged  one package 12.2.7 installer.

            So the unzip part did not touch the 12.2.7 files? or do I need to unzip it separately?

             

             

            Kind regards,

              Hi jc,

               

              The BuildStage only creates 12.2.0.  You need to download the 10 12.2.7 maintenance pack zip files from V930257-01* and unzip and apply per the 12.2.7 Readme.

                  Hi Micheal,

                   

                  Thanks Michael and Samya.

                  Hi Michael, actually all of the above was already downloaded below, together with 12.2.0.

                  Now I know.... I need to process it separately.

                  I just thought the buildStage will merge it to 12.2.0  and become a full-blown 12.2.7 complete installer

                      Hi jc,

                       

                      Most of these notes have multiple sections, one for new installations (fresh install of 12.2.0 that you want to upgrade to 12.2.7, and another for upgrade installations (existing 12.2.X instance that you want to now upgrade to 12.2.7).

                       

                      For your questions:

                       

                      Section 3 - Since the DB is already on 12.1.0.2, you do not need to upgrade.

                      Section 4 - You must do this as shown in steps 1.4 and 1.5 below

                      Section 5 - Consolidated Seed Table Upgrade patch is very important and shown in step 2.2 below

                      Section 6 - You need this as shown in step 2.3 below.

                       

                      I always use the Oracle E-Business Suite Release Notes, Release 12.2 (Doc ID 1320300.1) as my primary guide for a fresh installation of 12.2, then jump to the latest maintenance pack Readme as the last step.

                       

                      From the 12.2 Release Notes, you must complete the following sections once the install of 12.2.0 completes. 

                       

                      Oracle E-Business Suite Release Notes, Release 12.2 (Doc ID 1320300.1)

                       

                      1.4 Required Technology Patches

                       

                      1.5 Apply latest application tier technology patches to run file system - Use Patch 17537119 EBS Technology Codelevel Checker and/or Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2: Consolidated List of Patches and Technology Bug Fixes (Doc ID 1594274.1)

                       

                      1.6 Set Database Parameter (Conditional)

                       

                      1.7 Verify oraInst.loc (UNIX only)

                       

                      1.8 Fix Timestamp Mismatch Issues for Synonym, View, Package and Package Body

                       

                      1.9 Create Snapshot

                       

                      2.2 Apply Consolidated Seed Table Upgrade Patch 17204589:12.2.0

                        Thanks Michael,

                         

                        I thought with startCD 51 there is lesser work to do

                         

                        Is there VM image available yet for 12.2.7

                         

                         

                        Kind regards,

                          Hi jc,

                           

                          There is much less work after startCD 51.  Previously, you had to upgrade the database to 12.1.0.2 or 11.2.0.4 plus apply a couple dozen database patches, then upgrade the FMW 11.1.1.6 to 11.1.1.7 or 11.1.1.9 plus apply a bunch of technology patches.  The latest startCD brings you current in technology stack as of about Feb 2016.  All updates since then still need to be applied.

                           

                          I am not aware of any VM image for 12.2.7.  This exercise is a good way to gain experience.

                           

                          Regards,

                            Thanks Michael,

                             

                            You are lucky you are blessed with  "genius" brain level category.

                            Reading MOS notes really drain my brain.

                            That is why I got phobia opening it, especially applying lots of patches. Oracle now even complicates it with adop patching with fs1 and fs2.

                             

                            Anyways I will try to read it over and over and over until I will get it done successfully.
