Upgrading Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 126.96.36.199 with Bundle Patch 1 to 188.8.131.52 (aka Release 2?).
I have struck a few problems so far.
I was disappointed when I read the following in Oracle® Enterprise Manager Cloud Control Release Notes 12c Release 2 (184.108.40.206) for Linux x86 and x86-64:
6.1.2 2-System Upgrades On Same Host Not Supported
The 2-system upgrade option is not supported on a host with an existing Oracle Management Service instance. The reason is that such an upgrade would result
in two Management Agents on the host:
- The “old” Management Agent installed with the previous Grid Control release
- The “new” Management Agent installed as part of the upgrade
This scenario could result in unexpected behaviors in different Enterprise Manager features, and is therefore not supported.
This means that I have to do a single system upgrade because I only have one (1) linux_x86 system available to me: GRIDCTRL.
I have downloaded the software from Oracle Enterprise Manager Downloads for Linux x86:
- em12cr2_linux_disk1.zip (1.4 GB)
- em12cr2_linux_disk2.zip (1.5 GB)
- em12cr2_linux_disk3.zip (2.1 GB)—failed to open in Archive Manager
I tried downloading twice the third file but I get the same errors:
$ unzip "em12cr2_linux_disk3(2).zip" unzip: cannot find or open em12cr2_linux_disk3(2).zip, em12cr2_linux_disk3(2).zip.zip or em12cr2_linux_disk3(2).zip.ZIP. $ file "em12cr2_linux_disk3(2).zip" em12cr2_linux_disk3(2).zip: Zip archive data, at least v1.0 to extract
I have raised a service request with My Oracle Support about this zip file problem.
