DAC version and upgrade

Hi Gurus,


We are upgrading to Oracle DB 11G from 10G
Our current inventory
OBIEE 10.1.3.4.1
BI APPS platform 7.9.6
Informatica 8.X> upgrading to Informatica 9.1

when I check the DAC version its says
Build AN 364 Build date April 2008
Platform build 7.9.5.XXX
Platform package 05050XXXX
BI APPs 7.9.5

Oracle suggests that DAC 10.1.3.4.1 is compatible with Oracle 11G
I was under the impression that 7.9.6 is the platform(BI Apps version) and 10.1.3.4.1 is the OBIEE application versioning...

- What DAC version am I running and whats is the difference betwen my version and DAC 10.1.3.4.1?

- Any thread or blog you can point me to for impact/checklist on OBIEE/BI APPS/ Informatica for a Oracle 11G upgrade?

    You can go with Dac Build AN 10.1.3.4.1.

    patch list check this
    http://www.cool-bi.com/Patch/DAC_Patch.php

    Use DAC->Tools->DAC Repository management->Export
    and then Create a user on Oracle 11g for DAC, install client and then import the metadata.

    Srini: Thanks for your reply. As mentioned by Oracle I understand that I need to move to DAC 10. 1.3.4.1 but my questions still remain

    - What "DAC" version am I running and whats is the difference betwen my version and DAC 10.1.3.4.1?

    - Any thread or blog you can point me to for impact/checklist on OBIEE/BI APPS/ Informatica for a Oracle 11G upgrade?
