What is Upgration?

It is the process of replacing your existing software with an advance version of the identical product.Upgrading your applications usually do not require special tools. Your existing reports should look and behave the same in both products. For Example: Replacing Oracle 9i release to Oracle 10g release, SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2008 etc.

Why do we need to do upgrade our database:-

  1. With the help of upgrading, we can continue support with Oracle (because Oracle will not support if you have a license of unsupported version. for example, Oracle stopped support for 10g now, so if you have 10g database you cannot get any help from Oracle support to raise SR’s, to fix any bugs etc)
  2.  There is a serious bug which got fixed only in the new release.
  3. Client has license for new release
  4. Application will work better with new version of database etc

Upgrade to 12.1.0 2

1) check the pre-req before upgrading the grid home using runcluvfy.sh script

2) Run the run installer and start upgrading grid home.

Run the same script on other node
