  • Support for Windows Server Failover Clusters using PowerShell rather than cluster.exe

    Note

    The command line tool cluster.exe is replaced by PowerShell Cmdlets. For Windows Server 2012 and later, cluster.exe is not installed by default.

  • When applying patches - all nodes, that were brought down for applying patches, are brought up irrespective of the Job status. For more information, see BDA Communities article BDA 2019 Release 1 is now available for download .

    Note

    This enhancement is applicable only for Oracle Install and Rollback patches.
