1 is still available for download on edelivery.

Go to https://edelivery.oracle.com/, sign in.

Choose the Oracle Database Enterprise Edition product (or SE), choose your platform.

By default it will offer for download, but you can use Select Alternate Release, there you can choose

  • Good spot. I didn't notice Select Alternate Release when I logged on to check

The software isn't on edelivery.oracle.com either, as Oracle removed as soon as was released. Almost as if was a stop-gap release.

You'll have to open a support ticket with Oracle, asking for it. was a significant bugfix release, as well as adding lots of new features (JSON storage, rapid home provisioning) - upgrade to it ASAP if you've already got 12c in production.

  • Ok but I hav in prod already. So opening a ticket is the only option?

  • Yeah. Or you can tar up the existing $ORACLE_HOME and copy it over, then re-link binaries on the new host

  • But my existing oracle home is a RAC database and im copying it to another server were I would setup a standalone database. Won't there be any issues in re-linking the binaries?

    I've not had problems doing it with 11.2... Best bet is to open a support ticket, especially if you're putting it in production on the new box

    There's an "official" procedure for cloning an Oracle home (Doc ID 1493677.1 for 12.1.x) using OUI, if you're interested @tesla747. (There is/used to be a clone.pl script too somewhere that didn't require OUI IIRC, but I'm not seing docs for that in 12c.)
