 Thanks All. Which one is better in terms of taking care of most of the pre-post step and also restart able from the failure I can see that dbua GUI might have option to retry but not sure with silent mode. But it look like Autoupgrade is good option but have not used and earlier thought that is good for multiple upgrade.  Can anyone also share his experience with dbupgrade/DBUA/Autoupgrade ? TxSanjay

 To be totally honest, I didn't even realize there was a silent mode from dbua. Maybe it just fires off the perl

VERY related, if anyone is using 19c with SLES 15 sp2, do NOT apply the latest cve for binutils ( If you do, do not patch or relink the 19c executables. You'll get core dumps trying to start the instance.

We have a ticket in with SuSE and Oracle to get it fixed.

I can't. I used dbupgrade shell script and I find it easier than dbua.
