    9.3.3 to 11.1.2.3

    871250

      Hi Friends

       

      We are planning to upgrade our Hyperion Environment(Essbase,Planning ,FR)from 9.3.3 to 11.1.2.3

       

      Oracle documentation says

       

      "Upgrade to Release 11.1.2.2 and then apply the maintenance release to Release 11.1.

      2.3"

       

      We are installing on all new servers.Do we need a staging environment or is it a one step upgrade

       

      Please suggest.

       

      Thanks,

          Hi,

           

          We have done the upgrade for reports from 9.3.3 to 11.1.2.3 and it is a one step upgrade. As mentioned in the document first upgrade the database from 9.3.3. to 11.1.2.2 get everything setup for 11.1.2.2. and apply the maintenance release on it.

           

          Hope this helps.

           

          Good luck...

                  Have you read the full documentation for 11.1.2.2 on upgrading -

                  http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E17236_01/epm.1112/epm_install_1112200/frameset.htm?ch06.html

                  Then to upgrade from 11.1.2.2. to 11.1.2.3 you would read the maintenance release documentation.

                   

                  Cheers

                    Yes John

                     

                    In 11.1.2.2. documentation,they mentioned 9.3.3 to 11.1.2.2 is a direct upgrade.

                     

                    as 11.1.2.3 is released , we would like to upgrade to  the latest version.According to the 11.1.2.3 documentation

                     

                    Supported Upgrade Paths

                     

                    You can upgrade to EPM System Release 11.1.2.3 from the following releases:

                    Table 29.  Supported upgrade paths

                    Upgrade Path From Release ...To Release 11.1.2.3

                    11.1.2.x

                    11.1.2.3

                    Note that when moving from Release 11.1.2.x to Release 11.1.2.3, you use the "Apply Maintenance Release" option in EPM System Installer, instead of following the documented upgrade procedures.

                    Note:

                    For Financial Close Management, applying the maintenance release is supported only from Release 11.1.2.1 and 11.1.2.2.

                    11.1.1.4.x

                    Upgrade to Release 11.1.2.3

                    Release 11.1.1.0.x to 11.1.1.3.x

                    Apply the maintenance release to Release 11.1.1.4 and then upgrade to Release 11.1.2.3.

                    9.3.3.x

                    Upgrade to Release 11.1.2.2 and then apply the maintenance release to Release 11.1.2.3.

                     

                    So my impression is that still it is a direct upgrade from 9.3.3->11.1.2.2 and Install the maintenance release.

                     

                    Please correct, if my understanding is incorrect

                     

                    Do we need a staging environment for this migration?

                     

                    Please suggest john..

                     

                    Thnaks,

                      Yes as you have pointed out the documentation states "Upgrade to Release 11.1.2.2 and then apply the maintenance release to Release 11.1.2.3." and that is the reason why I provided the documentation for the 11.1.2.2 upgrade which is what you would do first.

                       

                      From the documentation

                       

                      To upgrade EPM System products to Release 11.1.2.2, you install and configure Release 11.1.2.2 software in a new location and move applications and data to the new deployment environment. There are two supported scenarios:

                      • Install EPM System on a new machine or machines. You can either reuse the existing database and data, or replicate the database and data to a new machine.

                        If you are upgrading to a new machine, you must upgrade to one with the same operating system. For example, if the earlier release was on a Windows operating system, you must upgrade to a Windows operating system. If the earlier release was on a Linux operating system, you must upgrade to a Linux operating system. Within the operating system constraint, you can switch between versions and editions of the operating system as well as 32-bit and 64-bit variations. For example, you can upgrade from 32-bit Windows 2003 to 64-bit Windows 2008R2.

                      • Install EPM System on the existing machine or machines (Oracle recommends that you install in a new installation location). You can either reuse the existing database and data, or replicate the database and data to a new machine.

                       

                      Then you would apply the maintenance release on the upgraded 11.1.2.2 to move to 11.1.2.3, so you just need the original 9.3.3 environment and then a set of machines for the 11.1.2.2 upgrade which you would then apply the maintenance release on top of 11.1.2.2

                       

                      Cheers
