Hi Hussein,

I want to migrate our EBS 11i form AIX to OEL.
Can you give me Notes on how to do this?

Source:
Aix = 5.3
DB = 10.2.4.0
EBS = 11.5.10.2

Target:
OEL = 5.8 or 6.3 (x86 or x86_64 ?)
DB = 10.2.0.4 or can I upgrade?
EBS = 11.5.10.2 (we dont upgrade now)

Note: 238276.1 - Migrating to Linux with Oracle Applications Release 11i
Note: 362205.1 - Export/Import Process for Oracle Applications Release 11i Database Instances Using Oracle Database 10g Release2
Note: 557738.1 - Export/Import Process for Oracle E-Bussiness Suite Release 11i Using Oracle Database 11g Release1 or 2


My Questions are
1. Can 11i migrate to OEL 6.3?
2. Can 11i migrate to OEL in x86_64 version?
3. Can 11i migrate to other linux(RedHat/CentOS)?
4. Which Tier(App/DB) do I migrate first?
5. Can I migrate DB(10.2.0.4) to DB(11.2.0.3) in target directly, or I must migrate to same db version then upgrade to 11.2.0.3?
6. What note should I refer to?

Thanks a lot.

    Hi Nick,
    I want to migrate our EBS 11i form AIX to OEL.
    Can you give me Notes on how to do this?
    I can see that you already have the docs :)
    Source:
    Aix = 5.3
    DB = 10.2.4.0
    EBS = 11.5.10.2

    Target:
    OEL = 5.8 or 6.3 (x86 or x86_64 ?)
    DB = 10.2.0.4 or can I upgrade?
    EBS = 11.5.10.2 (we dont upgrade now)

    Note: 557738.1 - Export/Import Process for Oracle E-Bussiness Suite Release 11i Using Oracle Database 11g Release1 or 2


    My Questions are
    1. Can 11i migrate to OEL 6.3?
    Oracle EBS is not certified on OEL 6.x
    2. Can 11i migrate to OEL in x86_64 version?
    Yes for the database tier node but not for the application tier node which has to remain on 32-bit -- Frequently Asked Questions: Oracle E-Business Suite Support on x86-64 [ID 343917.1]
    3. Can 11i migrate to other linux(RedHat/CentOS)?
    Yes for Redhat -- Please check the Certification matrix in MOS website.
    4. Which Tier(App/DB) do I migrate first?
    Either. I would recommend migrating the database tier node (export from 10g and import to 11g).
    5. Can I migrate DB(10.2.0.4) to DB(11.2.0.3) in target directly, or I must migrate to same db version then upgrade to 11.2.0.3?
    You can migrate from 10g to 11g
    6. What note should I refer to?

    Hi Hussein,

    Thanks for the update.

    Here is my plan

    [Phase I DB tier node]
    Note: 557738.1 - Export/Import Process for Oracle E-Bussiness Suite Release 11i Using Oracle Database 11g Release1 or 2
    aix 5.3 → OEL 5.8(x86_64)
    DB 10.2.0.4 → 11.2.0.3

    [Phase 2 APP tier node]
    Note: 238276.1 - Migrating to Linux with Oracle Applications Release 11i
    aix 5.3 → OEL 5.8(x86)
    EBS 11.5.10.2 → 11.5.10.2

    I will let you know if i have any questions. :)

    Thanks,
    Nick
