    Migrate 32bit to 64bit (oel4 to oel5)


      We need to migrate applications(database) from OEL-4.7 SERVER to OEL5 SERVER. Currently oel4.7 server is 32 bit and we need to migrate to OEL5 64-bit server.
      Could someone please help us to find the correct steps/docs for this kind of migrations.

      1. 32-bit server
      Operating system -->OEL 4.7
      Database version---->

      2. 64-bit server
      Operating system -->OEL 5
      Database version---->

      Note:- We are not trying to upgrade the database. Just we are moving the DB to 64bit new sever.

      Thanks in advance

            You will need to install the 64-bit software on the new server (pay heed to the pre-reqs), then apply the same patches to that you applied on the old server, then follow the process in the link posted above.
