    Hi Elke,

    Hello Elke

    Could you please confirm if EBS 12.2.4 is certified with Oracle Data Guard in RAC Primary to RAC Physical Standby configuration on RHEL 6x.

    In your blog you have mentioned NON-RAC only, does this mean that RAC Primary to Non-RAC physical standby.

    Thanks & Regards

    Greetings. Thanks for the inquiry. Active Data Guard is a separate certification. You may search for current certified versions of Active Data Guard with Oracle E-Business Suit using the Certifications tab on My Oracle Support. New certifications will be announced on this blog.

    Thanks for the inquiry. Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2.4 is not currently certified with Oracle Data Guard in a RAC configuration. This means that only non-RAC configurations for the primary and standby are currently certified.

    You may refer to the Certification tab in MOS and the following MOS Note for more details:


    We are currently in the process of certifying RAC configurations. Please continue to monitor or subscribe to this blog for the latest in certification announcements.
