I’ve done a couple of play installations of EM12c 18.104.22.168, just to get a feel for it. You can see the result of that here.
From an installation perspective, everything was pretty similar to the previous releases. I tried the installation on both OL5 and OL6, in both cases using 12c as the database repository. No dramas there.
A couple of things of note.
- The 12c repository template database is a Non-CDB architecture.
- The Weblogic installation uses Java6.
The next step is to try some upgrades from EM 22.214.171.124 (on DB 126.96.36.199) to EM 188.8.131.52, which is what I’ll need for my upgrades at work. The testing is quite time consuming and boring, but it’s got to be done before I can unleash this on the company. 🙂
PS. Remember to download from edelivery.oracle.com (in a couple of days) for your production installations. Apparently there is a difference to the license agreement.
