    968325
      Dear all ,
      I have two servers :
      1. OS . Redhat 4 32-bit have the EBS 11.5.10.2 .
      2. OS . Oracle Linux 5.3 64-Bit have the DB 10.2.0.5 .

      i want to upgrade the EBS to R12 and migrate it on another server 64-Bit .

      Can you provide me please with the steps for this with the notes number.
      and should i run the upgrade first or migrate first.
      should i download R12 32-bit or 64-bit for linux .
      where should i run the rapidwiz .
      Note : the DB will stay on the same server and wont change anything on it.

      Thanks. waiting your reply.

          Hello,

          Since the DB is not moved and the new apps tier install on a new server a migration is not needed.
          I suggest you have a good look at the Install, Upgrade and Concepts manuals on http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E18727_01/index.htm - these point to some related documentation.
          You can download and install the 64-bit version (note the apps tier installed will always be 32-bit.

          Regards, Carlo.

            I would suggest the following:

            1) Upgrade the database to 11.2.0.3

            Interoperability Notes Oracle EBS 11i with Oracle Database 11gR2 (11.2.0) [ID 881505.1]
            Database Preparation Guidelines for an E-Business Suite Release 12.1.1 Upgrade [ID 761570.1]

            2) Install R12 (64-bit) and upgrade to 12.1.1 on Node 1 after you install a 64-bit OS

            http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E18727_01/doc.121/e12842/toc.htm

            Oracle E-Business Suite Installation and Upgrade Notes Release 12 (12.1.1) for Linux x86-64 [ID 761566.1]

            3) Upgrade to 12.1.3

            Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.3 Now Available
            https://blogs.oracle.com/stevenChan/entry/ebs_1213_available

            Note: Please make sure you back up your 11i Apps tier files before you install 64-bit OS on Node 1. In case you have CUSTOM_TOPs you need to copy them to Apps R12 Apps tier (APPL_TOP) which can done before or after the upgrade.

            Thanks,
            Hussein

                Thanks hussein for your reply but i dont need to upgrade DB to 11 i will stay on 10g .
                Skip/Ignore Step 1 above.
                about the apps
                Install R12 (64-bit) and upgrade to 12.1.1 on Node 1 after you install a 64-bit OS
                do you mean format the server and install fresh R12 on it ?
                Yes.
                and if you mean that how can i connect the DB to this fresh install?
                You will be prompted to type the database tier node details in Rapid Install.
                is there any thing need to be taken from the 11i ?
                Custom files.
                and when i run the rapidwiz in the R12 which option i should choose. install or upgrade?
                You need to run it twice. Please see the upgrade guide for details.

                    What do you mean by install R12 on another server? Please elaborate more.
                    2. how to copy my custom reports and custom workflows to R12 from R11 ?
                    You can copy custom reports using any OS copy command -- http://www.oracle-base.com/articles/misc/os-backup-commands.php

                    For Workflow, please see these links.

                        here is the steps . if there is something wrong please tell me :

                        1. Install OS 64 bit on server .
                        2. begin rapidinstall for R12 64-bit and choose upgrade option.
                        3. pass the existing database configuration when it ask for it.
                        4. follow the upgrade guide.
                        5. after finishing R12 installation copy custom reports and forms and wf from 11i.


                        is there any comment about this steps ?

                          It is not a must and you can lay R12 software on the new server and run the upgrade from there.
