EBS Plugin version 1.8.3 introduces a new feature while refreshing EBS appsTier where a Pre Refresh hook will help in aborting concurrent manager services and reduce the time taken to gracefully stop the EBS application.. The password required to execute the same will be pulled from a text file present on the target appsTier host which will be created automatically during appsTier provisioning.
Plugins to support EBS virtualization are not automatically included in the Virtualization Engine deployment and can be installed by the end-user after uploading the plugin through the Manage > Plugin screen.

Oracle SI dbTechStack and Database
Oracle11gR2 (Minimum DB version supported 188.8.131.52)
Oracle12cR1 (Minimum DB version supported 184.108.40.206)
Oracle does not yet support the multi-tenant option for E-Business Suites, so Delphix cannot support this either.
Oracle EBS appsTier
Multi-node appsTier with shared APPL_TOP
The Delphix Engine does not provide support for provisioning a multi-node appsTier where the APPL_TOP is not shared between nodes.
Supported Operating Systems
Linux – SLES 9, 10, 11; RHEL 5, 6, 7, OL 5, 6

Example : Upgrade path for EBS 12.2 customer with existing Plugin version 1.1.0 who wants to upgrade to 1.8.x Plugin version : 1.1.0 → 1.2.0 → 1.3.0 → 1.4.0 → 1.5.0 → 1.6.0 → 1.7.0 → 1.8.0 or 1.8.1, 1.8.2, or 1.8.3.
- Customers should skip a minor Plugin 1.3.1 version upgrade.
- If EBS 12.2 customers are on Plugin version 1.3.1, the plugin upgrade path will be : 1.3.1 → 1.4.0 → 1.5.0 → 1.6.0 → 1.7.0 → 1.8.0 or 1.8.1, 1.8.2, or 1.8.3.
- Plugin 1.8.3 is a patch release
- Customers can skip a patch plugin release upgrade if they intend to upgrade their plugin to a higher version. The Delphix Engine simply ignores patch versions when handling plugin upgrade logic. It only validates the major/minor plugin version during the plugin upgrade.
