The RA Banner Agent will not start when using Applications Manager version 8 using:
Applications Manager against an Oracle 11i database
the RA Banner Agent using an Oracle 12c database
The RA Banner Agent requires the ojdbc6.jar to be in the $AW_HOME/web/classes directory on the Master in order to start, but V8.0 with Oracle 11i requires the ojdbc14.jar file.
Cause type: By design Root Cause: The ojdbc drivers in Applications Manager V8.0, and Oracle 10g are ojdbc14.jar, and the RA Banner agent requires the ojdbc6.jar for use with Oracle 12c.
OS Version: N/A
Update to a fix version listed below or a newer version if available.
Fix Status: Released
Fix Version(s): Applications Manager 9.0 - Available
Workaround : Install the RA Banner agent on an Applications Manager remote agent if the Applications Manager is running on a Oracle 11i database, and the RA BANNER agent is running on an Oracle 12c database, and put the ojdbc6.jar file in the remote agents $AW_HOME/web/classes directory.
