Migrate to a New Host

Hi everybody.

Some time ago I was told there was no way to port a single-box OCS 10.1.2 to a new host. Is this true?

What if I need to upgrade my servers? Is there any documentation about this issue?

Thanks in advance.

    Migration to a new host is supported only if the new host is identical to the old (os, network configuration, etc.)

    Try to look at

    You can find some useful informations.

    Well, I cannot make it work. I've set a new host, same name, same ip address, same users, same file structure. I copied Infra and app Oracle Homes, as well the datafiles.

    The database starts ok, as does the listener.

    But opmnctl startall on Infra home hangs for a while and then gives an OID dependency check failure.

    Anyone knows what can be wrong? Shouldn't a copy of all structures to a new host work? I'm using Enterprise Linux.

    Thanks in advance
