Database 10gR2 Certified with E-Business Suite on Windows

Steven Chan

The database patchset is the terminal release for the 10gR2 codeline.  As a follow-on to the original certification announcement (on July 2, 2010), Oracle Database 10gR2 Patch Set is now certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i and R12 on the following Microsoft Windows Server platforms:
  • Windows Server 2003 (32-bit and 64-bit)
  • Windows Server 2003 R2 (32-bit and 64-bit)
  • Windows Server 2008 (32-bit and 64-bit) for EBS 12 only
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 (64-bit only) for EBS 12 only
The certification with Windows Server 64-bit operating systems are 'database-tier only' (previously known as 'split tier') platform certifications - the application tier must be on a different certified EBS platform such as Windows Server (32-bit). This announcement includes:

Premier Support for 10gR2 ended July 31, 2010 We've covered this several times already, but it never hurts to keep reminding you that Premier Support for the 10gR2 (10.2) database ended on July 31, 2010. Regular readers may recall that fees for the first year of Extended Support for the 10gR2 database are waived. There is nothing that customers need to do to remain fully supported other than keep your support contracts current. Higher fees for Extended Support will start August 1, 2011 for most platforms. This is formally documented in two different places, for those of you who appreciate convergent validation: If you haven't already done so, I strongly recommend that you review the following article to understand the support implications for E-Business Suite environments: If you are considering upgrade paths for your EBS environment from 10gR2, you have the choice of either 11gR1 (11.1) or 11gR2 (11.2).  For the longest Premier Support coverage, choose 11gR2.  Here's a snapshot of our EBS database roadmap as of today: Snapshot of E-Business Suite database certification roadmap as of July 2010 showing end of premier support dates for each database releaseEBS 12 References EBS 11i References Related Articles
