Oracle EBS 12.2.8 with Database 19.3 (As PDB)


Oracle Recently certified Oracle EBS R12 to run with Database 19c (19.3). Its really exciting because this is the first time Oracle Certified to run EBS Database as a PDB. I have finally completed the 19c Upgrade from and EBS runs like a charm as usual with 19.3 Database. The upgrade and migration needs to be carried out rather carefully but the documentation is excellent and there are barely any issues.

Here is the overview of the process:

  1. Apply Latest ETCC patches and Mandatory EBS patches such as 19c Interoperability etc.
  2. Install Oracle 19c Binaries
  3. Migrate Autoconfig to DB Tier (i.e. using
  4. Create CDB (Follow instructions carefully as no PDB needs to be created now)
  5. Create the CDB TNS Files
  6. Upgrade your 12c Database to 19c using DBUA
  7. Compile Invalids and Gather Stats
  8. Create and Configure PDB using txk scripts provided by Oracle
  9. Modify Initialization Parmaters of 19c
  10. In Application Tier: Modify tnsnames.ora to include CDB, Modify APPLPTMP value to include new locations on DB
