Elke Phelps
Product Management Director

I'm pleased to announce the recent certification of Oracle Data Guard  with Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2.  You can use Oracle Data Guard to create a Physical Standby Database for Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 environments.  A Physical Standby Database is a key component for a disaster recovery site for Oracle E-Business Suite.

Detailed steps for setting up a Physical Standby Database for Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 are provided here:

    I notice the comment *For single node databases only. Certification with RAC configurations is pending.

    Does the single node database relate to the Primary or the Standby or both?

    I am just wondering if I can have a RAC primary and single node Standby and be certified?

    Thanks for the inquiry. Certification with RAC configuration with Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 and Data Guard means that RAC is not certified for either the Primary Database or Standby Database.

    Hello, Khalid,

    This blog is staffed by E-Business Suite specialists. I'm afraid that we don't have any visibility into Siebel certifications. You can log a formal Service Request against Siebel to get an authoritative answer to this question.

    Hi Elke,

    Given the extended support cost implications for in February 2016, I hope that RAC will be certified with DataGuard on before that time?

    I don't think it is reasonable to not certify on a version that we have no choice to go to if we want to avoid extended support costs.

    I understand your concerns. We are actively working on the certification of Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 with Database Data Guard with a RAC configuration. This is a high priority project for us in Oracle E-Business Suite development.

    If you could, please send me an email. I'd like to collect some additional information about your company and your requirements for this certification.

    Hi Elke:

    My apologies in advance for going slightly off topic (as this is an 11i Data Guard question and not R12).

    We are looking at upgrading our 11i instance to use RDBMS 12c (we are currently at RDBMS We use Data Guard, Physical Standby Database, for business continuity, should that need ever arise.

    However, the Certify page for 11i shows that 11i is only certified for use with Data Guard not 12c. Are there any plans on getting 12c Data Guard (and here I'm only interested in its Physical Standby Database functionality) certified for use with 11i ( And if so is there a timeframe for that certification?

    Take care,


  • Elke Phelps (Oracle Development) Tuesday, September 22, 2015


    We are not currently planning to certify Oracle E-Business Suite 11i with Oracle Database 12c Data Guard.

    If you could, please drop me an email with your company name and plans for remaining on Oracle E-Business Suite 11i.

    We have EBS 12.2.5 with DB integrated with OAM/OID for Single Singn-On. When I explore the MOS, I could not find any reference on how to build DR Setup for this kind of environment. Note 1963472.1 says about only EBS environment without OAM/OID integration. Since the Webgate and EBSAccess gate deployed within the EBS WebLogic server, how we can setup DR and perform switchover. Please guide.
