Linux Tux logoOracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1 (12.1.3) is now certified on Oracle Linux 7 (64-bit) and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 (64-bit).

Installations of the E-Business Suite 12.1 on these operating systems require the application of the 12.1 RUP 3 (12.1.3). Cloning of existing EBS 12.1.3 Linux environments to these operating systems is also certified using the standard Rapid Clone process.

There are specific requirements to upgrade technology components such as the Oracle Database (to or and Fusion Middleware components as necessary. Other requirements, known issues, patches needed, etc. are noted in the Installation and Upgrade Notes (IUN) below and must be reviewed and implemented.

Pending Certifications

Certification of EBS Release 12.2 is in progress and will be announced at a later time when completed.

    We are planning to migrate our OS from RedHat Enterprise 5 for Oracle Applications Release 12.1.3 to RedHat Enterprise 7. I know this RedHat 7 is certified with EBS 12.1.3 but just wanted to clarify the steps.

    We will make sure we follow MOS Note 761566.1 on RedHat 7 new Linux server and then use Rapid Clone (406982.1) process to copy existing EBS (database and application) to new Linux server with RedHat 7. Do we need any additional steps or I am missing any steps for this kind of migration?

    that's correct, Kaberi - you need to review the requirements, etc. in the IUN (MOS Note 761566.1) first to prepare your target RHEL 7 environment and your source 12.1 system. You would then follow the steps in the Rapid Clone document to copy over your 12.1 system to the new target RHEL 7 env.
