Changes in Oracle Database 12c Release 1 (12.1)

The following are changes in Oracle Database Installation Guide for Oracle Database 12c Release 1 (12.1):

New Features

Deprecated Features

The following features are deprecated in this release, and may be desupported in a future release. See Oracle Database Upgrade Guide for a complete list of deprecated features in this release.

  • Change for Standalone Deinstallation Tool

    The deinstallation tool is now integrated with the database installation media.

    See "Deinstallation Tool Integrated with Installation Media".

  • Deprecation of -cleanupOBase

    The -cleanupOBase flag of the deinstallation tool is deprecated in this release. There is no replacement for this flag.

  • Windows NTS Authentication Using the NTLM Protocol

    The NTS authentication adapter no longer supports the use of the NT Lan Manager (NTLM) protocol to authenticate Windows domain users. Thus the NTS adapter cannot be used to authenticate users in old Windows NT domains or domains with old Windows NT domain controllers. However, local connections and Oracle Database services running as a Windows Local User continue to be authenticated using NTLM.

  • Deprecation Announcement for Oracle Restart

    Oracle Restart is a feature provided as part of Oracle Grid Infrastructure. Oracle Restart monitors and can restart Oracle Database instances, Oracle Net Listeners, and Oracle ASM instances. Oracle Restart is currently restricted to manage single instance Oracle Databases and Oracle ASM instances only, and is subject to desupport in future releases. Oracle continues to provide Oracle ASM as part of the Oracle Grid Infrastructure installation for standalone and cluster deployments.
