EPM / OBIEE certification with Windows 2008

When working in Support, there are some questions that are asked over and over again.
One typical type among these are questions of compatibility or certification.
With every release of a new OS, a new patch to an OS a new browser, a new Java version etc. users are worried, confused, irritated and most of all in need to find out:
  • Does this new version of X work with my existing version Z?
  • If we want to use the new version X of this program - what version does Z need to be to cater for that?
  • Is X certified (supported) with Z?
  • Where do I find information for the compatibility?
Over the next week(s) I will bring out a number of posts that deal with this kind of thing with regards to EPM / OBIEE
  • Internet Explorer 10 compatibility
  • Windows 2008 support
  • Office 2013 compatibility
  • Java 7 support

So let us continue with the second

"Windows 2008 compatibility" 

EPM and Windows 2008

Answer as of the certification Tab in MOS:
 "Oracle Enterprise Performance Management System 11.1.2.2.0 is certified on Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit) 2008 R2"

 Actually - here is a screenshot of what OSses are supported as of the latest version of EPM:

OBIEE and Windows 2008

Answer as of the certification Tab in MOS:
"Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition 11.1.1.7.0 is certified on Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit) 2008 R2"

And as above another screenshot of what OSses are supported by OBIEE right now:

Please note:
Windows 8 is not mentioned on either of these (EPM or OBIEE) so it is not currently certified/supported.
(There may be versions or parts of the software that already supports Windows 8, but either they are not visible in certification yet, or I simply did not find them.)


General Certification Information

As opposed to the post from Tuesday I will not go through the Certification Tab in MOS again. You should understand how that works by now and I will not insult you by further bragging about it. Instead I will make use of your attention and mention our Certification Communities. We do have several:

The bad thing about these Communities is, that you need to log in to actually post in them (just as you would for a support call).

The good thing about them is, that there are multiple people watching the threads and it is likely that you get your answer within a day or even faster. And it is not only ONE person viewing these, but any customer or consultant or support engineer can monitor and post in the communities. So chances are, that your answer is even quicker compared to a support call.
