Oracle Database 11.2.0.4 Certified with E-Business Suite 12.2

I'm very happy to announce the certification of Oracle Database 11.2.0.4 with Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2. 

To begin planning your database upgrade to 11.2.0.4, you should review our documentation in this order:

  1. Interoperability Notes: Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 with Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (Note 1623879.1) 

  2. R12.2 Consolidated List of Patches and Technology Bug Fixes (Note 1594274.1) .  The interoperability note references this note.  It is crucial that you review all requirements in Section 2.2, "Database 11.2.0.4 Patches and Bug Numbers" of this note.

  3. Database Initialization Parameters for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 (Note 396009.1).  Make certain that you review Section 4, "Release-Specific Database Initialization Parameters For Oracle 11gR2" and Section 6, "Additional Database Initialization Parameters for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2".

What does this mean if you are upgrading to R12.2?

  • This upgrade is highly recommended for all EBS 12.2 environments.

  • If you are just beginning your upgrade to R12.2 project, you should consider upgrading to Oracle Database 11.2.0.4 now. 

  • If your are currently in the midst of your R12.2 upgrade, you may continue as planned with Oracle Database 11.2.0.3 and upgrade to 11.2.0.4 as your R12.2 upgrade project and test plans permit.

  • If your go-live date is soon, you may choose to continue as planned with Oracle Database 11.2.0.3 and upgrade to 11.2.0.4 after you go-live with 12.2.

It may be useful to review the the Oracle Database 11gR2 support policies and dates as part of your decision-making process:

Comments:

The note about Active Dataguard is interesting - I thought EBS didn't support ActiveDataguard due to the requirement to update the 'last login' info when the user is authenticated, even if the user just wants to run a report.

Is this now supported?

John,

Active Data Guard is certified to offload (some) Oracle E-Business Suite reporting requirements. Please refer to the following article:

Arvind,

That is correct. Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2 requires a minimum of Oracle Database 11.2.0.3 plus required patches. To prepare your database for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2, please refer to the following:

- Database Preparation Guidelines for an Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2 Upgrade, Note 1349240.1

Regards,
Elke
