We are starting our migration to exadata next month.
One of the issues we have is regarding to our Informatica ETL tool . Our application is licence to 32 bit.
The database repository of this tool is currently running on linux redhat 5.5 64 bit with 11203 rdbms version.
We had to install oracle client 32 bit software , in order to allow the application to connect to the database.
Is it possible to install oracle client 32 bit on exdata ? If not what would you suggest ?
I can't speak for Informatica, but it should be able to connect to the database over the network, so the database server OS wouldn't matter in that case. That is, if Informatica runs on a different Linux machine that runs 32-bit Linux, it can connect over the network to the Exadata database server node. If Informatica requires to run on the database server directly, you'd have to ask them how they can support 64-bit Linux (or you may have to modify or add to your license).
