The HP support side shows a Linux certification matrix at: http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/servers/linux/hplinuxcert.html
From there you can also download the necessary drivers and instructions or use HP smartstart CD which prepares the system for the OS you need to install. Oracle Enterprise Linux is binary compatible with RHEL, but uses the Oracle UEK kernel by default. You can switch at boot menu.
Also interesting should be Red Hat Enterprise Linux Technical Exceptions at:
Note that currently no Oracle Database products are supported under Oracle Linux 6 yet. If you plan to install Oracle database, use the latest 5.7 instead. And yes, install 64-bit. 32-bit is obsolete.
"Note that currently no Oracle Database products are supported under Oracle Linux 6 yet", Is this statement still availabe?
also, "the weblogic server product running with ADF runtime" can be supported under Oracle Linux 6.3? if not, which the latest version can be supported? Thanks a lot!!!!

No, Oracle 11g database products are supported, but depending on what you install you may need access to Oracle support to download the latest certified versions, e.g. 220.127.116.11.
If you install Oracle 11g database, you can use the "oracle-rdbms-server-11gR2-preinstall" package which is supplied by OL 6.3 distribution media or can be setup from Oracle public Yum.
For support and certified information it is always best to check the available documentation:
+"Starting with Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (18.104.22.168), Oracle Linux 6 is supported"+
Regarding Weblogic, Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 (12.1.1 and later) is certified on 64-bit Oracle Linux 6 with the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel (UEK).
Unless you're doing this just for fun you might also want to check your actual requirement for OL6, because Oracle Linux provides the same latest UEK and UEK2 kernel versions for both, OL5 and OL6, so the kernel version is not necessarily a reason to upgrade.
That's correct, 22.214.171.124 is certified for OL6, but that's what the OP is apparently using.
Btw 126.96.36.199, so far, installed and runs fine in my OL6 my test environment. Only for Grid Infrastructure I had to create my own patch before running root.sh to make the Oracle HA Services daemon work with the new "upstart" facility that replaces the previous rc sysinit.
