    EBS R12 upgrade and solaris to linux migration in one go?

    Jeremy277
      Hi all, first post on this forum so bear with me.

      I'm planning to migrate EBS 11.5.10.2 from Solaris (sparc) 64bit to EBS R12 on RHEL 5 x86-64 and would like to know if I can do this in one move i.e. perform the migration and upgrade in one step or do I need to upgrade to R12 first and then migrate or migrate first and then upgrade.

      I understand the migration and upgrade steps but have not seen any supporting documentation on combining them, has anyone done this?

      thanks in advance
      Jeremy

          Hi,

          You can upgrade the application on the Solaris box to R12 then migrate the R12 application to Linux (since your target OS is Linux 64-bit, please note that you cannot migrate the 11i application as 64-bit OS is only certified as a database tier only for Oracle Apps 11i).

          To upgrade 11i to R12, please refer to:

          Oracle Applications Upgrade Guide: Release 11i to Release 12.1.1
          http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B53825_03/current/html/docset.html

          To migrate the database you can use export/import or transportable tablespaces -- Refer to these docs for details:

            Article 756086.1 isn't coming up for me. Has it been replaced?

              Looks like this doc no longer exist for public access -- You may log a SR and ask Oracle Support to send you a copy of the doc.
