RHEL 5 on Linux Itanium Certified with EBS 11i + 10.2.0.4 DB

Our Applications Platforms Group continues to round out our certification matrix for the 10.2.0.4 Database and specific platform combinations.  They certified Apps 11i with RHEL and SLES 9 and 10 and the 10.2.0.4 Database on Linux Itanium earlier this year.  This week they announced that Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i  (11.5.10.2) is certified with Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5 on Linux Itanium with the 10.2.0.4 Database. 

This is a database tier-only certification (also known as a "split configuration").  The application tier must be on a supported Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i operating system platform.

Hello Steven,

Is 11i (11.5.10.2) version of EBS supported by Oracle Enterprise Linux (OEL 5) 5.3? I setup R12 with OEL 5.3 on VMWare and would like to setup a new VM with OEL 5.3 (32bit) and 11.5.10.2. When I tried to install 11i before with OEL 5.3 it failed and said that it was not supported during the initial setup with Rapid Install (rapidwiz).

Thanks,
Ben

Hello, Ben,

OEL 5 is certified and supported with EBS 11.5.10.2. I'd recommend logging a formal Service Request via Metalink for this to get one of our EBS installation specialists engaged. Feel free to drop me an email with the SR number if it gets bogged down in some way.

Regards,
Steven

We are currently upgrading from 11.5.5 to 11.5.10.2 and then R12 and migrating platforms from Solaris 10 to RHEL 5 for both Database and Apps Tiers.

The 11.5.5 instance on Solaris 10, is not autoconfig enabled. We're debating on the following two options and would appreciate your input:

1. Install 11.5.10.2 on the Targer system (RHEL5), import the source 8.1.7.4 database into the target running 10G, copy over all the custom files on the file system (reports, etc.), run the c driver of all the patches that were installed on the source instance since it was first installed (only about 4 patches total). Once complete, upgrade the 11.5.10.2 instance to R12.

2. Enable Autoconfig on the source system, follow the 11i Linux migration document and upgrade to 11.5.10.2 during the platform migration. Once complete, then upgrade to R12.

I would like to avoid applying the autoconfig patches on the source system if possible, so was wondering if Option 1 is feasible.

If we do go with option 2, I want to know if it's possible to upgrade the 11.5.5 instance to 11.5.10.2 directly during the Linux migration since 11.5.5 is not certified with RHEL5.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks

Enabling Autoconfig and following the gist of Option 2 is probably the safest thing to do - in order to minimize some of the downtime, you could to the application tier migration to RHEL 5 as part of the R12 Rapid Install Upgrade where one has to lay down a new filesystem on the target platform in any case.
So, something like:
(1) Upgrade to 11.5.10.2 on Solaris (after enabling AC).
(2) Migrate DB tier to Linux using export/import (see relevant 11i export/import doc)
(3) Migrate App tier and Upgrade to R12 using the R12 Rapid Install.
