Compatibility of Patrol Reporting with Oracle DB 220.127.116.11
The last release for “BMC Performance Manager Reporting” which is also called as Patrol reporting was done in February 2010 and after this there is no development done and the version of it was 3.2.00.
End of life for this product is December 2018 and hence we do not have any plans to test the same with latest oracle DB version(s).
With Oracle 12c, concept of container & pluggable database has been introduced and hence user need to use PDB’s and Patrol reporting DB instance name might get change and hence customer need to change the DB connection setting on the Aggregator side too.
As said we haven’t tested it and certified it but theoretically there should not be any issues for working of Aggregator KM with Oracle upgrade.
How do we check the current version of Patrol reporting product installed in server : Once aggregator KM is restarted it writes version on patrol agent log (check top lines on it) and also when user select “Infobox” menu command which appears when user does right click of “Patrol Datastore” on Patrol console, they would see the version.
