    Hi there,

    My first question is why 11.1.2.2 and not 11.1.2.3? 11.1.2.3 seems to solve a lot of 11.1.2.2 issues.

    1. My first answer would be go for a fresh installation because you need to make use of the latest OS and hardware... If you are on Hyperion 9, you must have Windows 2003 server and at least 5 years old hardware, correct?

    2. Check Oracle's documents

    3. There are plenty of challenges on the application level but it depends on how your application works. Not all users have the same apps and as a result do not have the same issues.

    4. You will have to install an 11.1.1.4 system for application upgrade but you should move to 11.1.2.x

    6. I would suggest to build a new app with a new design... just upgrading an old app will not make use of the latest HFM/FDM modules...

    Regards,
