Oracle also recommends that customers, as a best practice and performance increase in completing the upgrade, disabling RAC during a R12 upgrade. You should also disable archive logging. Please refer to NOTE 269.1 for 11i - R12 upgrade advisor note.
I am using 18.104.22.168 on RH Linux 5 (32bit for apps, 64 for DB), 22.214.171.124 RAC 2 node, 1TB, 4 apps tier nodes (2 nodes shared appl top, 1 node not, 1 node ASCP conc mgr on HP UX 10, 3 of the nodes are conc mgrs). Modules FIN, HR, MAN. OATM already done, ADI 6 already done.
Our first test clone will be everything on a single 64bit node except the DB.

If you setup the project before laying down R12 you can manually point to where the files will be after the install, and you will have to manually create the foundation directories and env files so the config step passes.
Also, does MW expect you to have the R12 upgrade file system installed before you begin your MW project? I noticed MW was asking me for R12 config info when creating a project but I have not seen it in documentation anywhere if you are supposed to have already installed R12 tech/upgrade stack. Please advise.
