    What is the recommended architecture for a 2 node installation of R12 on HP-UX Itanium. I recall Oracle used to recommend hosting the Concurrent Tier on the DB Tier. Does this still hold good in R12 or can we have just the Database running off a single Node while everything related to EBS (12.1.2, AS, 10g running on the 2nd node.

    I would greatly appreciate you dropping in a line. Thanks.

    Hi, Suresh,

    You can put the concurrent manager on the application tier now. We used to recommend that this be put on the database server due to network bandwidth and performance considerations. That was a very long time ago. Modern networks have sufficient capacity that this is no longer required for optimal performance.

    Hi Steven,

    Is 11gR2 Database is certified with EBS R12.1.1 when both Database and application Tier on Single Server and operating system is HP-UX Itanium 64-bit. I am bit confused due to Mixed platform architecture. There is no clear statement found which state that 11gR2 database is certified with EBS R12.1.1 on HP-UX Itanium 64-bit.

    Please help me on this.
