New Feature 19C – AutoUpgrade


Oracle Database 19c on premises is available and one of the new features is the AutoUpgrade utility.
What is the AutoUpgrade?
The Oracle Database AutoUpgrade utility is a new tool which allows you to upgrade your databases in an unattended way.
The idea of the tool is to run the prechecks against multiple databases, fix of the potential issues, set a restore point in case something goes wrong and then upgrade your databases.
Of course, do the postupgrade, recompilation and time zone adjustment. The only thing you need to provide is a config file in text format.
Which database releases are supported?
According to the MOS Note: 2485457.1 – AutoUpgrade Tool only the versions below are supported:
Oracle Database 19.3.0 and newer
Oracle Database 18.5.0 and newer
Oracle Database with Jan 2019 RU and newer

Where do you get the AutoUpgrade?
You get it when you install Oracle Database 19c (19.3) or you download the most recent version from MOS Note: 2485457.1 – AutoUpgrade Tool:

Where do you find the AutoUpgrade documentation?
It is all here included in the Oracle Database 19c Upgrade Guide:
Using AutoUpgrade for Oracle Database Upgrades
Hope this helps !!!
Soon we will have more articles on the Oracle 19c.
