When Oracle is upgraded from 11 to 12, do any settings in CA TDM repo need to be changed?


Article ID: 76844


Updated On:


CA Test Data Manager (Data Finder / Grid Tools)


After copying prod repo to test repo and upgrading test server and test repo from 4.1 to 4.4, will need to upgrade the Oracle CA TDM repo from 11 to 12. The test instance name may also need to be changed. Can you provide the process needed to update the tool to recognize the new db instance name and new version 12?


Component: TDMDTM


You wont need to do anything to the repository in general to support an upgrade from Oracle 11 to Oracle12. The DBA will have to do the migration between these two versions of Oracle, but thats an Oracle process, not a TDM process. From a TDM perspective, you wont need to do anything. The only thing you might need to do is to change your repository profile to point Datamaker to the location of the repository on Oracle 12.  These updates were made to schema, but it may not matter (it did no harm):

Apply these updates:
c:\odac64\network\admin\tnsnames.ora tdmdev = (DESCRIPTION = (ADDRESS_LIST = (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP) (HOST = <>) (PORT = 1521) ) ) (CONNECT_DATA = (SERVICE_NAME = DMTDEV01) ) )

C:\oracle\orc12c_64\product\\client_1\network\admin\tnsnames.ora TDMDEV = (DESCRIPTION = (ADDRESS_LIST = (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP) (HOST = <>) (PORT = 1521) ) ) (CONNECT_DATA = (SERVICE_NAME = DMTDEV01) ) )

C:\Program Files (x86)\Grid-Tools\GTDatamaker\Tnsnames.ora updated with new DB mapping for tdmdev.
