Glad you re-sent that email, since I don't speak fluent gobbledygook. :)

From customers I've spoken to, the main reason people are looking at upgrade rather than a clean installation is purely and simply because they want to keep the history that is currently contained in their repository. Of course, a clean installation does give you the chance to get rid of a lot of old baggage that you may no longer need, but in general this is more of a business decision than a technical one really.

Very odd characters in my list post-not sure where they come from. Sending again with a different email client:

I'm finding it very interesting that so many of you on this list opt to upgrade their management servers. At my current site we are evaluating if we shouldn't forget about the current deployment and use the 12c upgrade to get do a tech refresh. New OMS, new load balancers, new database (everything). The risk of doing so is considered less than with an upgrade.

For those going for the migration from 11.1 or even 10.2, would you mind sharing your reasons for the upgrade? How many targets do people monitor?

Best regards,
Martin Bach
