      We are doing a assesement for the R12 upgrade and currently we are in 11.5.10.2 and DB on 10gR2 and we are
      planning to move to R12.

      Could you all please share your thoughts on the DBA front

      1.what are the key impact which r12 will be having?
      2.What are the key areas of focus and impact the R12 would be having ? like XML,custom applications,legacy systems.
      3.What are the new features the R12 is having from dba perspective after moving from 11.5.10.2 of both(applications and database)

      Adding to the above we are planning to move to 12.1.3 from 11.5.10.2

                Database version 11.2.0.3 does not exist. 11.2.0.2 was released recently and is not yet certified for EBS.

                For 11.2.0.1 requirements, see the Install Guide here - http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E11882_01/install.112/e17162/pre_install.htm#CIHFICFD

                Pl post exact version if AIX

                      Hi,
                      we would like to go to 12.1.3 and we are planning to go with the existing server(boxes).also we would like to upgrade the database to 11.2.0.1 or 11.2.0.3.

                      No matter what your AIX version is, only 10.2.0.4, 10.2.0.5, 11.1.0.7, 11.2.0.1 are certified with R12

                        All,

                        Thanks for the support.

                        From the below link we could see that the minimum requirement for 11.2.0.1 installation is 64 bit, but whereas we are having 32 bit for both applications(linux 5.3) and database(IBM-AIX 5300).

                        1.Would like to know whether we need to move to 64 bit kernel if we want to go to 11.2.0.1 in IBM-AIX if we are planning to got to 12.1.3?

                        2.Also for applications we are in 32 bit with Linux platform and i believe 12.1.1 supports 32 bit whether 12.1.3 supports as well in REDHat entreprise linux server 5.3 (Tikanga)

                        pls suggest
