    11.5.9.2 Upgrade

    903444
      We are doing an upgrade from 11.5.9.2 (AIX) to 11.2.0.3 (Linux) and wanted to see what the best path would be for the DB.

      Currently on 9i on AIX
      Will migrate to 11g on Linux.

      Can we do a direct DB upgrade using export/import from 9i to 11g? Or, other supported method?

      Or, do we need to upgrade first to 10g on 11.5.9 then upgrade the DB to 11.2.0.3 as part of the 12.1.3 upgrade process on Linux?

          11.5.9 is not certified with 11.2.0.3 and you will need to upgrade to 11.5.10 CU2 first.

            Upgrading to 11.5.10.2 first is not an option. We are going to go from 11.5.9.2 directly to 12.1.3
