Premier Support for SSO + OID 10.1.4.2 Ending in November 2009
By Steven Chan-EBS Development-Oracle on Apr 23, 2009
Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i is certified with Oracle Single Sign-On and Oracle Internet Directory 10.1.4. Single Sign-On and Oracle Internet Directory are part of Oracle Application Server (OracleAS) 10g 10.1.4. We certified EBS with the Oracle Application Server 10.1.4.2 patchset in early 2008, and followed this up with EBS certifications with the Oracle Application Server 10.1.4.3 patchset in February 2009.
You should be aware that the OracleAS 10.1.4.2 grace period will end in November 2009. After November 2009, you will still be able to download existing OracleAS 10.1.4.2 patches, but new patches will be issued only for the latest 10.1.4.3 release.
If you've integrated your E-Business Suite environment with Single Sign-On and Oracle Internet Directory 10.1.4.2, I would strongly recommend that you plan an upgrade to the most-current certified OracleAS release. As of today, that's OracleAS 10.1.4.3. Future readers coming across this article should refer to this blog's one-page Certifications summary for the latest certified configurations.
Want To Know More About Support Policies?
The Server Technologies support policies have recently changed in some important ways. I've discussed the E-Business Suite implications of those changes in these articles:
- On Database Patching and Support: A Primer for E-Business Suite Users
- On Apps Tier Patching and Support: A Primer for E-Business Suite Users
I don't represent the Server Technologies organization (I'm in E-Business Suite Development), but I'm happy to pass on your thoughts and feedback about Oracle's support policies to management teams in those groups. Feel free to post a comment below or send me a private email.
