    R12 Upgrade Path Advice (RHEL 3)

    978348
      Dear All,

      I would like you to provide me some input on R12 upgrade.

      Our current setup is
      OS: Red Hat Linux AS 3.0 32-bits
      EBS: 11.5.10.2
      DB: 10.2.0.4

      New setup
      OS: Red Hat Linux 6.x 64-bits
      EBS: 12.1.3
      DB: 11.2.0.3

      I have searched various notes, but can not find anything specific to it RHEL 3.0.

      R12 is not supported on RHEL3.0, so I can't upgrade it on current system and then migrate it to RHEL6 system using note 471566.1.

      Can you please advice me what options we have here ?.

      Thanks in advance

      Regards

          You do not need RHEL 3.0 and you just need to lay down R12 on RHEL 6.x 64-bit and do the upgrade from that node. The 11i node is not used during the upgrade, and there is no point of installing R12 on an OS and migrate it to a different OS.

              On the target server, you do not need to install RHEL 3.0 and you can simply install RHEL 5.0/6.0 and install R12 on it then run the upgrade from this node.

                  You can upgrade the database by installing the 11gR2 ORACLE_HOME directly on the new server and upgrade the 11i database as per (Interoperability Notes Oracle EBS 11i with Oracle Database 11gR2 (11.2.0) [ID 881505.1]), and this can be done before starting the R12 upgrade.

                  Thanks,
