Hi Community Members,
Good news for you!
I had the chance to test the Multitenant Upgrade in an SAP environment. This was considered as part of SAPs releasing process of Oracle 18c.
The environment I was using is the following:
Source Oracle RDBMS Release: 12.2
A CDB with 2 PDBs (ABAP and JAVA in separate PDBs)
SAP NW 7.5
From a technical point of view, the upgrade is working, CDB and PDBs got correctly and successfully upgraded to 18c.
However, the upgrade itself is complex. Includes lot of small steps and one have to take care of tiny details.
The White Paper of this upgrade will be published as soon as possible, so stay tuned for the updates.
Corresponding SAP notes got released:
2660017 – Oracle Database 18c Installation on Unix
2660020 – Central Technical Note for Oracle Database 18c
2540847 – SAP Guides for Oracle Database Upgrade
2660027 – Upgrading to Oracle Database 18c
In addition to these, I released the Upgrade Guide here.
