    Upgrade Databse 12.1 to 18c with hardware and operatingsystem change



      We have the following situation:

      RedHat 5 and Oracle RAC with 2 Nodes.

      We plan an upgrade to 18c RAC on RedHat 7/8 with 2 Nodes.

      Is this the plan we can do:

      Install RedHat 7/8 on new Server

      Install Oracle DB 18c RAC on this Server

      Change DB from NonPDB to PDB

      Transfer the PDB to Rac 18c

      Another question:

      After the Transfer will be upgrade the 12.1 automatically to 18c?

      How can i find an best practice  for this upgrade?
