We just Zero-Downtime-Upgraded 12.0.1 to 12.1.1.

Is was ... interresting. And certainly not really Zero Downtime.

  • many agents didn't reconnect until manually restarted (not sure if by design or not)
  • the wizard lost track of the steps and towards the end was all greyed out
  • in the German versions, apparently lots of translations are missing
  • the wizard keeps talking about "Release Automation" and ARA (in a pure AE) - well, even the screenshots in some Automic documentation have these screens
  • we were asked to end "Conversation Memory" and other "Memory Entries" - this is probably by design, but we have zilch of a clue how to "check them beforehand", as advised by the wizard. All you can do is pray and click "end them all".
And my personal favorite, listing it here because people sware that this exact kind of thing used to work in 12.0.1:


Splendid. Happens when you try to deactivate a parent workflow.

I'm on AE 12.1.1 and Oracle 12c - what does this even mean now, that something is possible since 11.2, but not possible for us now.

What does it all mean ...?
