We can upgrade an oracle database using OEM 12c cloud control also.
Here I will show how to upgrade database from 184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11 .
Note - Make sure that 18.104.22.168 ORACLE_HOME is installed.
SOURCE ORACLE_HOME(22.214.171.124) - /oracle/app/oracle/product/12.1.0
TARGET ORACLE_HOME(126.96.36.199) - /oracle/app/oracle/product/188.8.131.52_CRM/dbhome_1
Before starting the upgrade, Enable flashback in the database, so that we can create a restore point during the upgrade, And if upgrade fails, we will be able to restore the database to before upgrade stage.
SQL> alter system set db_recovery_file_dest_size=10G scope=both;
SQL> alter system set db_recovery_file_dest=-/archive/oradata/B2BCRMT3/arch/FRA- scope=both;
SQL> alter database flashback on;
Go to the HOMEPAGE of the database, which need to be upgraded.
