We are soliciting your feedback on our recently announced E-Business Suite Release 11i + 10gR2 Cross Platform Transportable Tablespaces (XTTS) database migration process.


We know that quite a few of you have requested this and are curious as to how you might be faring with it. For those customers who have downloaded the controlled patch (6158038) required for this migration of the EBS database, we would love to hear your answers to the following questions:

  1. What is the size of the E-Business Suite Database you've migrated or plan to migrate?
  2. What were the source and target platforms for this database migration (e.g. Linux Itanium to Oracle Solaris on SPARC)?
  3. Where are you currently at in your migration?
    • Not started on migration
    • Migration in progress following MOS Doc 454574.1
    • User testing of migrated system in progress
    • Completed testing and awaiting production migration
    • Live on migrated system in production
  4. Have you filed any SRs as part of your testing of your migration? And if so, what were the SR numbers?
  5. Have you analyzed the time savings when using XTTS vs export/import? If so, what were the savings?
