    Upgrade and migrate database from RHEL4 32-bit to OEL6 64-bit

    Angela0086-Oracle

      Dear all,


      We are going to upgrade the EBS from 11.5.10.2 to R12.2 We want to know  db migration path during upgrade from 11i to R12.2.


      SOURCE Server: OS x86  RHEL4 , EBS 11.5.10.2, DB 10gR2

      TARGET Server: OS x86-64 OEL6, EBS 12.2.5, DB 11.2.0.4


      What is the best path to upgrade and migrate the database?


      I have two approaches and kindly please let me know which one is better.


      Approach 1:

      1. Upgrade the database to 11.2.0.4 on the source server

      2. follow the note 946413.1 section3.5 (option A) to migrate the database (Using Oracle EBS with a Split Configuration Database Tier on 11gR2 (Doc ID 946413.1)).


      Approach 2:

      1. Upgrade the database to 11.2.0.4 on the source server

      2. Use export/import to migrate the database to target server (Export/import notes on Applications 11i Database 11g (Doc ID 557738.1)).


      Kindly please advise which approach is better?


      Thanks & Best regards,
