Hi Community Members,
Yet another good news for you!
Just like before with Oracle Multitenant, another 18 Upgrade with GRID Infrastructure got successfully tested.
This time the environment is lot more simpler:
ASM Release: 126.96.36.199 with 3 Diskgroups (DATA,ARCH,RECO)
RDBMS Release: 188.8.131.52
SAP NW 7.5
I am sure, the success of this test upgrade will help to support GRID upgrades to 18c much sooner then we expected. SAP guides and SAP notes will be published as quick as we can.
The White Paper of this upgrade will be published shortly as well.
Corresponding SAP notes got already 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
2660028 – Upgrading to Oracle Grid Infrastructure 18c
In addition to these, I released the Upgrade Guide here.
