Expedited Database Maintenance for Middleware Databases
Posted: 14:09:06, Tuesday, Aug 14, 2018 Expiration: 18:00:00, Thursday, Aug 23, 2018
Emergency maintenance is being performed in Middleware databases to address a critical vulnerability.
This maintenance will impact both non-production and production Oracle databases. If your application relies on Middleware Oracle databases, please ensure you familiarize yourself with the maintenance schedule below and take appropriate action to minimize the impact to your application.
Relevant updates will be posted to the DoIT Outages Page during the maintenance windows. While problems aren’t anticipated, the criticality of the situation may require a change to the schedule on short notice. If the schedule is changed, this KB News Item will be updated, email will be sent and the outage page will be updated.
Once the maintenance is complete, please test your application functionality as soon as possible. If issues are discovered, email email@example.com.
IMPORTANT: A precise procedure must be followed by users of the redundant PHEXPP environment to to ensure uninterrupted service during planned maintenance to PHEXPP1 and PHEXPP2. Instructions for this procedure are found in PHEXPP - Maintaining connectivity during server maintenance.
WARNING: If you've historically depended on automatic failover, beware that Oracle's upgrade locks accounts and some clients will not see that as the database being unavailable and will not automatically switch instances. We are working on solutions to this but will not be able to solve it on this tight timeline.
