Patch Assistant enables you to migrate your existing configuration of Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (22.214.171.124.0) components, used in conjunction with the 126.96.36.199.0 and 188.8.131.52.0 installations. Patch Assistant is not a complete software distribution. You must run this Patch Assistant over an existing Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (184.108.40.206.0) installation. Patch Assistant is designed to work with all Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (220.127.116.11.0) products. You may see messages that an Oracle product is not present in a domain or instance. This message is informational and does not indicate an error.
Refer to Table 3-7 for the Oracle Fusion Middleware components supported by Patch Assistant.
Note:Patch Assistant is used only for updating Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (18.104.22.168.0) Domains and Oracle Instances. If you are not updating your existing 22.214.171.124.0 domains and instances, you are not required to use Patch Assistant.
Patch Assistant helps to migrate the following from Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (126.96.36.199.0):
Oracle Fusion Middleware Domains
Note:It is required that you migrate the entire Oracle WebLogic domain. When the domain is migrated, all components in the domain are also migrated.
Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (188.8.131.52.0) database schema created using Oracle Repository Creation Utility (RCU)
Note:You must migrate both the schema and the middle tier.
When you run Patch Assistant tool, the configuration files contained in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (184.108.40.206.0) domain and Instance directories are copied to the new directories in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (220.127.116.11.0) installation. The Middleware home is the full path of the Oracle directory that contains the Oracle Fusion Middleware installation, and
MW_HOME will be used in this documentation to refer to the directory where the product is installed.
MW_HOMEmust be replaced with the full path name of the installed Oracle Fusion Middleware instance.
