In case you have not noticed it already, EM 12c Windows port was released to manufacturing yesterday. EM12c OMS is now supported on Windows x64 and the agents can be deployed on Windows x64, Windows 32 and zLinux. The software is available for download on OTN and EM Store (Self-update).  


It should be available on eDelivery in a few days.  

We have also made revised versions of the DB, FMW, FA and Exadata plug-ins available on the EM Store.  

The HYPERLINK "http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E24628_01/doc.121/e35229/toc.htm"BP1 workbook has been revised for the Windows update and is now part of the HYPERLINK "http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E24628_01/index.htm"doc library.  

A few tips:  

  • You should use the OTN download link only if you want to install OMS on Windows. If you have an existing OMS running on Linux, new agent image will be available to you through the EM 12c self-update functionality.
  • Please note that the Windows port already includes BP1. So if you do a brand new install of OMS on Windows, you already have all the BP1 fixes. On other platforms (e.g. Linux), you will either need to have a BP1 environment available to apply the Windows update or you will have to undertake the process of applying BP1 update as a part of Windows update process.
  • You will need to apply some patches on Linux OMS before you can push the new agents and monitor targets on the above three platforms. These patches have also been made available for download.
  • Also, if you're thinking of starting a new upgrade from EM 10/11, please download the latest version of the Pre-Upgrade Console patches.
