    Oracle EBS 11i Database Upgrade to 11gR2- Is Manual Upgrade Method Support?

    user1983888
      Hi,

      Our env is Oracle EBS 11(11.5.10 with 9.2.0.5.0)) and we want to upgrade to 11.5.10.2 with Database 11gR2.

      I have completed upgrade up to 11.5.10.2 with 9.2.0.8.0.

      I upgraded (Test Upgrade) the database to Oracle Database 11gR2 (11.2.0.2.0) by following +Interoperability Notes Oracle EBS 11i with Oracle Database 11gR2 (11.2.0.2) [ID 881505.1]+* and I upgraded the database manually by following +Complete Checklist for Manual Upgrades to 11gR2 [ID 837570.1].+* I have released the Instance for testing and feedback from users.

      I raised SR with Oracle for some clarifications and they are informing me that I MUST use DBUA to upgrade an Oracle EBS Database to 11gR2 and Manual Upgrade method is NOT supported . I preferred Manual Upgrade method as it gives more control and we would know what is happening during the database upgrade.

      Please let me know if I can use Manual Upgrade method for Oracle EBS database upgrade.
      Will I get support from Oracle if I run into any issues in the future after going Live?

      Rgds,
      Thiru
