    Shaik

      Hi All,

       

      My current Architecture:

      single node architecture

      OS: RHEL3

      APps: 11.5.9

      Db: 9.2.0.3

       

      Target:

      Two Node architecture:

      DB: 12c

      Apps: R12.2.5

      OS: RHEL7

       

      Here i need to upgrade 11.5.9 to R12.2.5

       

      My steps what am planning to achieve

       

      I will complete up to extended support in 11i on RHEL3

      1)9.2.0.3 to 9.2.0.8 upgrade

      2)11.5.9 to 11.5.10.2 upgrade

      3) 9.2.0.8 to 10.2.0.5 upgrade

      4)exprot database using datapump using doc 1585257.1

       

       

      5) in destination i will import in 12c database (RHEL7)

      6) Rapidwiz to install R12.2.0 structure

      7)R12.2.5 upgrade

       

       

      I have previously achieved the R12.2.5 from 11.5.10.2 by same steps what i have mentioned above.

      Now Here in this version my doubt is why we cant exp/imp from 9.2.0.8 to 12c as per doc id:132904.1

       

      Steps:

      1)9.2.0.3 to 9.2.0.8 upgrade

      2)11.5.9 to 11.5.10.2 upgrade

      3) 11.5.10.2/9.2.0.8 export/import to 12c database

      4)R12.2.0 rapidwiz and R12.2.5 upgrade

       

       

      Is EBS 11.5.10.2/9.2.0.8 we can export/import to 12c Database. Please clarify me

      or 11.5.10.2/10.2.0.5 is mandatory as per 1585257.1

            Hi,

             

            After you upgrade to 11.5.10.2, you must apply the patches in the following document:

             

            Patch Requirements for Sustaining Support for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11.5.10 (Doc ID 883202.1)

             

            It is not supported to export from 9i and import into any later version.

            Moreover, you cannot export from 10gR1 and import into 10gR2.

            The only supported path is to upgrade the database to 10.2.0.5 and then do the export/import.

            This is true for 11i and R12 as well.

             

            10g Release 2 Export/Import Process for Oracle Applications Release 11i (Doc ID 362205.1)

            Export/Import Process for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 using 10gR2 (Doc ID 454616.1)

             

            Regards,

            Bashar

              Hi Bashar,

               

              Thanks for the reply

               

              What is the complications will face if we imp 9i to 12c database (ebs environment)

               

              Regards

                I have no idea.

                I've never attempted it since it is not supported. If this is a production environment then you must stick to the supported procedure.

                Besides, upgrading the database from 9i to 10g does not take much time. You can do it in a separate downtime window.
