I saw in the TC11 platform matrix that TC11.2.3 supports Oracle 188.8.131.52 or higher.
There is also a line "Oracle 12.2 is not yet certified with new deployment architecture"
My question is:
A. Does TC11.3 support Oracle 12.2 now ?
B. What does the new deployment architecture mean?
Thanks in advance!
Good afternoon, you asked an interesting question according to the TC11 platform matrix Teamcenter 11.x does not support Oracle 12.2
As far as I understand it is about Multitenant Architecture
But since Teamcenter 11.5 there is such support:
According to the same documentation, Teamcenter 11.3 does not support Multitenant Architecture.
But according to the Oracle blog, you can Oracle 12.2 create a non-CDB (or stand-alone) architecture (not Multitenant Architecture)
I think that you can install Teamcenter 11.3 if you install Oracle 12.2 and create a non-CDB database architecture
Thanks @ArthurRM ! I sure had a good discussion with my DB team guys on this topic.
But Though the TC11.5 doc link says it supports 12c multitenant architecture, my concern is that will I have Siemens support for any performance issues when they explicitly say "Oracle 12.2 doesnot support TC11.x".
I was planning to upgrade to TC11.3 (considering other OS & app compatability), I would need to go with Oracle 184.108.40.206 though DB guys feel 12.2 is more stable. But anyway to obtain Siemens support I have only option, to have TC11.3 with Oracle 220.127.116.11
Supported and certified are different things...
"I saw in the TC11 platform matrix that TC11.2.3 supports Oracle 18.104.22.168 or higher."
Supported because higher versions of the third party products are suported, on the basis of vendor claims of upward compatibility. i.e. Siemens will invesitgate and fix if possible (so there are some caveats here)
"There is also a line "Oracle 12.2 is not yet certified with new deployment architecture""
Certified means has been develeped and tested against as part of the softwares release cycle.
i.e. certified is a subset of supported.
Good afternoon, I'm pretty sure that you will have no problems if you use Oracle 12.2 in non-CDB mode. If in doubt, write your question to GTAC.
I'd rather use a newer version of Oracle, since they usually have a lot of useful improvements, fixed problems, and closed security holes.
Good afternoon, @JFK1963. I see that other users have questions on how to create a non-CDB database in Oracle for Teamcenter. I will show it on the example of Oracle 12.2 and Teamcenter 11.3, from this topic.
To create a database for Teamcenter 11.3, I need to merge the contents of the folders:
and copy the merged contents of these folders into ORACLE_HOME\assistants\dbca\templates
I’ll continue the detailed description from step 4: Start Oracle Database Configuration Assistant (DBCA)
Select Advanced configuration option and click Next
Select tc option and click Next
In the next step, we can control which type of database we want to create CDB or none-CDB:
Teamcenter 11.3 does not support the CDB type, so I disable the Create as Container database option and click Next:
I will not describe further steps, I will post only the result of creating the database:
@JFK1963 addition for you:
I think you need to clear the ORACLE_HOME\assistants\dbca\templates folder from the previously copied Teamcenter templates and merge the templates as I described above and copy them into ORACLE_HOME\assistants\dbca\templates, in my screenshot below, the Teamcenter templates are highlighted I copied to ORACLE_HOME\assistants\dbca\templates (don't delete the default Oracle templates, they are not highlighted)
