Our current setup isYou do not need RHEL 3.0 and you just need to lay down R12 on RHEL 6.x 64-bit and do the upgrade from that node. The 11i node is not used during the upgrade, and there is no point of installing R12 on an OS and migrate it to a different OS.
OS: Red Hat Linux AS 3.0 32-bits
OS: Red Hat Linux 6.x 64-bits
I have searched various notes, but can not find anything specific to it RHEL 3.0.
R12 is not supported on RHEL3.0, so I can't upgrade it on current system and then migrate it to RHEL6 system using note 471566.1.
Can you please advice me what options we have here ?.

I am not sure, if I get your point, can you please elobrate what you mean by "You do not need RHEL 3.0 and you just need to lay down R12 on RHEL 6.x 64-bit and do the upgrade from that node" ?

Got this point, but at what stage db has to be upgraded ? and on source rhel3 or target rhel6 ?
