Unable to discover or backup database after upgrading Oracle

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • SnapCenter Plug-In for Oracle 4.6P1 (SCO)
  • Oracle v. 12.2
  • Oracle v. 18.3


SCO is unable to discover or backup the database after upgrading Oracle from v.12.2 to 18.3.
In SCO UI the database shows as 'unavailable for backup' and it lists the old db version.
During a Backup, SPL log generates the following errors:
