    Is 11i ( + ATG PF.H RUP 6 and higher) going to be certified with AIX 7.1

    I believe DB is already certified

  • John Abraham Wednesday, January 5, 2011

    Hi M K -

    No, we don't have any plans to certify AIX 7 with EBS 11i which is now in Extended Support - we typically only undertake new OS certifications for releases that are in Premier Support, so only R12 is being considered/planned.

    Do you have any plans to certify EBS 11.5.10 and Oracle DB running in HPUX 11.31 based 100% in Integrity/Itanium2 platform ?

    If not can we consider running EBS 11.5.10 in HPUX 11.31 (PA RISC ) and DB in HPUX 11.31 ( Integrity/Itanium2) as a supported environment by Oracle ?

    Thanks in advance

    For EBS11i, only the database tier is certified on HP-UX Itanium. There are no plans to support EBS 11i application tier on HP-UX Itanium.

    You can run EBS in a split-configuration with (application tier) on HP-UX 11.31 (PA-RISC) and DB on HP-UX 11.31 (Itanium). Note that this is only (11.5.10 is not certified in this configuration).

    Also note that DB is already in Extended Support. DB and are also currently certified for use on HP-UX Itanium 11.31 (database tier) with

    Is there no direct release for on HP-UX 64bit ? should I only go via the upgrade method ?

    I actually need 12.0.4 for HP-UX 64bit. I could not find the s/w so was planning to upgrade from Is there a better way to get 12.0.4 on HP-Ux 64bit ?

  • Steven Chan Tuesday, June 14, 2011

    Hi, Guest,

    Rapid Install releases of both 11i and 12.0.4 are no longer being distributed. I would recommend starting with the 12.1.1 Rapid Install and upgrading to 12.1.3. You can find the HP-UX PA-RISC (64-bit) media on eDelivery.oracle.com.
