John Abraham

I am pleased to announce that Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1.3 and 12.2.6 (or higher) are now certified with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 12 on x86-64.

Installations of E-Business Suite on this operating system require specific patches to the latest startCD prior to installing, followed by the application of the 12.1.3 RUP or the 12.2.6 RUP (or higher) for EBS 12.1 and 12.2 respectively. Cloning of existing EBS 12.1.3 or 12.2 environments to SLES 12 is also certified using the standard Rapid Clone process.

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

For more information on requirements, please review the following documents:

    If I have my Oracle EBS 12.1.3 in Oracle Linux, Can I clone it to SUSE directly?

    Hello Jesus -
    Yes, you can do so as the binaries are the same, i.e. built for Linux x86-64. You must ensure that all requirements (as documented in MOS Note 761566.1) are met.
