    Windows to Linux Migration alongwith database upgrade and 64-bit conversion

    subhavsa
      Hi,

      I have the following requirment with reference to Oracle EBS on 11.5.10.2

      We want to migrate and upgrade database portion of EBS

      From :
      - Single Node - 11.5.10.2 (apps) and 11.2.0.2 (db) on 32-bit Windows Platform

      To
      - Split DB Tier configuration mode with
      - 11.5.10.2 (apps) remaining on 32-bit Windows Platform And
      - DB tier migrated and upgraded to 11.2.0.3 (64-bit) database version on 64-bit Linux platform.


      We do not plan to perform Linux migration for Application file system on 11i.

      For database, we plan to follow the Export/import notes on Applications 11i Database 11g [ID 557738.1].


      Question :
      - Using the above note and export/import path, can we achieve all 3 database tasks in one go?
      i.e.
      1. Windows to Linux migration for database
      2. 32-bit to 64-bit migration (by installing 64 bit version on linux)
      3. Exporting database from 32-bit Windows on 11.2.0.2 and Importing it to 64-bit Linux on 11.2.0.3.

      OR
      Do we need to first either upgrade or migrate to the same release and perform each task individually.
      i.e.
      - Use Export/import notes on Applications 11i Database 11g [ID 557738.1] to just to migrate from Windows to Linux.
      - Use another MOS note to convert from 32-bit to 64-bit
      - Then upgrade 11.2.0.2 to 11.2.0.3.


      Would appreciate any pointers on this.

      Thanks.
