Мы недавно получили вот такое письмецо:
For SAP environments, Oracle Instant Client versions 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 are supported.
Free Extended Support for Instant Client version 220.127.116.11 will end after May 2017. It is therefore recommended to use Instant Client version 18.104.22.168.
When you upgrade the database to 22.214.171.124, you should also upgrade the instant clients on the SAP application servers to 126.96.36.199.
