    Need R12 Upgrade plan

    990012

      Hi All,

       

      I need flow of 12.1.3 Upgrade.

       

      We are on 11.5.10.2 applications and database is on 11g(11.2.03).

      Now we are going to upgrade 11.5.10.2 to 12.1.3.

       

      Below is my plan First we need to upgrade from 11.5.10.2 to 12.1.1 then 12.1.3

       

      but my question is do we need to follow Interoperability Notes? or we can directly start 12.1.1 upgrade?

      Interoperability Notes Oracle EBS 11i with Oracle Database 11gR2 (11.2.0) [ID 881505.1]

            Please follow the steps under (Path E: Upgrade Path for Systems with 11.5.10.2 with a 11.1.0.6, 11.1.0.7, 11.2.0.1, 11.2.0.2, 11.2.0.3 Database ) section in (Database Preparation Guidelines for an E-Business Suite Release 12.1 Upgrade [ID 761570.1]).

             

            You need to apply additional database patches and modify initialization parameters as per the doc before upgrading to 12.1.1 then to 12.1.3

             

            Thanks,

                  Hi,

                   

                  I am new to Rac, i have gone through the link could you please provide the steps

                   

                  1. As we Already we have 2 node RAC, How to disable/enable the RAC for existing environment?

                  2, After disabling can we run adpatch directly with out setting TWO_TASK for custom tns alias?

                  3.After R12 Upgrade is completion how can i configure previous existing Node?

                    1. As we Already we have 2 node RAC, How to disable/enable the RAC for existing environment?

                     

                    Just shutdown all instances and keep one running.

                     

                    2, After disabling can we run adpatch directly with out setting TWO_TASK for custom tns alias?

                     

                    Again you are not disabling (or changing from RAC to non-RAC) and you only shutdown all RAC instances and keep one running.

                     

                    3.After R12 Upgrade is completion how can i configure previous existing Node?
