Enabling Case-Sensitive Passwords with E-Business Release 12

Password security and complexity is often a concern for security and audit teams.  With the recent release of patch 12964564, Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.1 with a minimum database level of 11gR1 now supports password case sensitivity.  Let's review this database feature in greater detail.  

Password case sensitivity was introduced with Oracle Database 11gR1.  Passwords were not case sensitive in earlier versions.  For Oracle database versions prior to 11gR1, the passwords "Manager", "MANAGER", and "manager" were all equivalent.  In an 11gR1 database and higher with password case sensitivity turned on, each of these passwords, "Manager", "MANAGER" and "manager" are unique passwords with unique hash values.  

Password case sensitivity is turned on by default for any newly created 11gR1 or higher database .  The database parameter for this feature is SEC_CASE_SENSITIVE_LOGON:

  • When this parameter is set to TRUE, password case sensitivity is enabled.
  • When set to FALSE, it is disabled.  
The DBA_USERS view now has a PASSWORD_VERSIONS column that indicates the database release in which the password was created or last modified. 

If you have migrated from a prior database version to 11gR1 and SEC_CASE_SENSITIVE_LOGON is set to true, the default behavior is as follows:
  • Existing users must first initiate a password change for password case sensitivity to be enforced
  • New users created in the 11g database will automatically use password case sensitivity 

The following example on a generic database -- not an E-Business Suite database -- illustrates how the password case sensitivity feature works in 11g.

First, a new user, "newuser1",  is created in an 11g database.

Next, information from the DBA_USERS view is displayed.

The following shows behavior of a migrated 10g user, "system" and an newly created 11g user, "newuser1" when password case sensitivity is disabled.

Finally, the following  shows behavior of a migrated 10g user, "system" and an newly created 11g user, "newuser1" when password case sensitivity is enabled.


For instructions on how to enable password case sensitivity with EBS R12.1.1 running on the 11gR1 Database and higher, please refer to the following MOS documentation:

Oracle Database 10gR2 10.2.0.5 Certified with EBS 11i on Tru64, Linux on Power, Linux Itanium

As a follow-on to the original certification announcement, Oracle Database 10gR2 Patch Set 10.2.0.5.0 is now certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i on the following additional platforms:

  • HP Tru64 (5.1b)
  • IBM: Linux on POWER Systems (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, 5; SLES 9, 10)1
  • Linux Itanum (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, 4, 5; SLES 9, 10)1

Notes:
1 This is a database tier only (previously known as a split tier) certification where the application tier must be on a different fully certified E-Business Suite 11i platform.

Certification of 10.2.0.5 on Windows Itanium is still in progress and will be announced separately. 

This announcement includes:

  • For EBS 11i version 11.5.10 CU2+ATG_PF.H.delta.6 (RUP 6) and higher:
    • Real Application Clusters
    • Oracle Database Vault 
    • TDE Column Encryption
    • Advanced Security Option/Advanced Networking Option (ANO/ASO)
    • Export/Import Process for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i
    • Transportable Database and Transportable Tablespaces Data Migration Processes for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i

Please refer to the original announcement for additional information pertaining to this certification.

Upgrade to 11gR2 Database instead of patching 10gR2

It's always helpful to check the latest Lifetime Support Policy documents when considering your upgrade options.  As a guiding principle, you should upgrade to the database release that gives you the longest supported timeline.

Oracle Database 10gR2 is now in Extended Support through July 2013.  In general, if you're applying database-level updates to your Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i environment, you'll get a better return on your investment of time if you upgrade directly to the latest 11gR2 database release.  Premier Support for 11gR2 runs through January 2015, and Extended Support runs through January 2018.

11gR2 Transportable Tablespaces Certified for EBS 11i

Database migration across platforms of different "endian" (byte ordering) formats using the Transportable Tablespaces (TTS) process is now certified for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i (11.5.10.2) with Oracle Database 11g Release 2.

Small endian to big endian platform migrations

Obtaining this patch

This migration process requires a "Controlled" patch delivered by the Oracle E-Business Suite Platform Engineering team, i.e. it requires a password obtainable from Oracle Support. We released the patch in this manner to gauge uptake, and help identify and monitor any customer issues due to the nature of this technology. In addition to the requirement for 11.5.10.2 as the Release 11i version, TTS migration requires both the source machine and target machine databases to be 11gR2.

Does it meet your requirements?

Note that for migration across platforms of the same "endian" format, users are advised to use the Transportable Database (TDB) migration process instead for large databases. The "endian-ness" target platforms can be verified by querying the view V$DB_TRANSPORTABLE_PLATFORM using SQL*Plus (connected as sysdba) on the source platform:

SQL>select platform_name from v$db_transportable_platform;

If the intended target platform does not appear in the output, it means that it is of a different endian format from the source. Consequently. database migration will need to be performed via Transportable Tablespaces (for large databases) or export/import.

The use of Transportable Tablespaces can greatly speed up the migration of the data portion of the database. However, it does not affect metadata, which must still be migrated using export/import. We recommend that users initially perform a test migration on their database, using export/import with the 'metrics=y' parameter. This will help identify the relative amounts of data and metadata, and provide a basis for assessing likely gains in timing. In general, the larger the amount of data (compared to metadata), the greater the reduction in downtime that can be expected from using XTTS as a migration process.

Latest DSTv17 Timezone Patches Available for E-Business Suite R12

Hourglass iconIf your E-Business Suite Release 11i or 12 environment is configured to support Daylight Saving Time (DST) or international time zones, it's important to keep your timezone definition files up-to-date. They were last changed in August 2011 and released as DSTv16.

DSTv17 is now available and certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12. The DSTv17 update includes the timezone information from Olson tzdata 2011j. 

DSTv17 is an interim release.  Its primary purpose is to include the new DST rules for Russia which take effect from 30th October 2011.  At this time the clocks will not move back one hour but will remain on "summer time" instead.

Patches for this release are available on a request-only basis.  If you require this patch for your operating system/patch configuration, you must request it explicitly from Oracle Support.

Is Your Apps Environment Affected?

When a country or region changes DST rules or their time zone definitions, your Oracle E-Business Suite environment will require patching if:

  • Your Oracle E-Business Suite environment is located in the affected country or region OR
  • Your Oracle E-Business Suite environment is located outside the affected country or region but you conduct business or have customers or suppliers in the affected country or region

We last discussed the DSTv16 patches on this blog. The latest DSTv17 timezone definition file is cumulative and includes all DST changes released in earlier time zone definition files. DSTv17 includes changes to the following timezones since the DSTv16 release:

What Patches Are Required?

In case you haven't been following our previous time zone or Daylight Saving Time (DST)-related articles, international timezone definitions for E-Business Suite environments are captured in a series of patches for the database and application tier servers in your environment. The actual scope and number of patches that need to be applied depend on whether you've applied previous DST or timezone-related patches. Some sysadmins have remarked to me that it generally takes more time to read the various timezone documents than it takes to apply these patches, but your mileage may vary.

We've published the following Notes which identify the various components in your E-Business Suite environment that may need DST patches:

What happened to EBS 11i?

The certification of DST v17 with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i is still in progress.  Oracle's Revenue Recognition rules prohibit us from discussing certification and release dates.

Using Single Client Access Name (SCAN) Listeners with Oracle E-Business Suite

[July 30, 2012 update: Corrected Note reference to 823586.1]

[Sept. 2, 2011 update:  Our Maximum Availability Architecture architects have pointed out two additional considerations that are documented in our existing documentation:  1)  Although SCAN listener is supported with EBS 12, if scan_name resolves in DNS to IP1 and IP2, the client-side 10.1.2 network code does not use round robin on the underlyng IPs if the first IP fails.  An Autoconfig solution for this is being tracked through bug 10427234. The only existing workaround is to create custom TNS aliases configured with multiple SCAN IP addresses (Note 823587.1); 2) EBS does support use SCAN functionality, it cannot make complete use of the SCAN since the EBS clients are pre-11.2.  For more details, see this Exadata whitepaper.]

Oracle database 11g logoSingle Client Access Name (SCAN) is a new feature of Oracle Real Applications Clusters (RAC) 11g Release that provides a single name for the clients to access Oracle Database running in a cluster.  The benefit of the SCAN Listener is that the client's connection data does not need to changed if you add or delete a node from a cluster.

The Single Client Access Name is configured during the installation of Oracle Grid Infrastructure. Once configured, application tier connection descriptors just specify the SCAN name rather than all the [virtual] hosts in the cluster.

Without the Single Client Access Name, the descriptor for a two-node cluster would be

VISION =
(DESCRIPTION=
(ADDRESS_LIST=
(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=tcp)(HOST=C1-vip)(PORT=1521))
(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=tcp)(HOST=C2-vip)(PORT=1521)))
(CONNECT_DATA=(SERVICE_NAME=VISION)))  

With the Single Client Access Name, just the SCAN name needs to be specified:

VISION = (DESCRIPTION=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=tcp)(HOST=C-SCAN)(PORT=1521))(CONNECT_DATA=(SERVICE_NAME=VISION)))

The benefit of the Single Client Access Name becomes apparent as the number of nodes in the cluster increases.

Which E-Business Suite releases can be used with SCAN Listeners?

You can configure E-Business Suite Release 11i and 12 environments to take advantage of Single Client Access Name functionality.  The use of SCAN Listener is optional.

EBS 11i

AutoConfig in E-Business Suite 11i does not  support automated handling of SCAN Listeners.  If you would like to use SCAN Listeners with EBS 11i environments, a manual setup process is described in:

EBS 12

AutoConfig in Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 supports automated handling of SCAN Listeners.  If you would like to use SCAN Listeners with EBS 12 environments, see:

    Managing EBS 12 Physical Standby Databases with Oracle Data Guard Broker

    [Aug. 8, 2012 Update: Added additional details about logical standby and Oracle Streams]

    [Aug. 24, 2011 update: Clarified description of AutoConfig dependency when enabling EBS failover environments]

    Oracle Data Guard allows you to create standby databases for disaster recovery.  Oracle Data Guard Broker provides an easy interface to configure standby databases and to perform role transitions with a single command for switchover and failover.  It logically groups the primary and standby databases into a broker configuration that allows the broker to manage and monitor them together as an integrated unit. Oracle Data Guard Broker can automate the following operations:

    • Creation of Data Guard configurations incorporating a primary database, a new or existing (physical or logical) standby database, log transport services, and log apply services, where any of the databases could be Real Application Clusters (RAC) databases.
    • Adding up to 8 additional new or existing (physical or logical, RAC, or non-RAC) standby databases to each existing Data Guard configuration, for a total of one primary database, and from 1 to 9 standby databases in the same configuration.
    • Managing an entire Data Guard configuration, including all databases, log transport services, and log apply services, through a client connection to any database in the configuration.
    • Invoking switchover or failover with a single command to initiate and control complex role changes across all databases in the configuration.
    • Monitoring the status of the entire configuration, capturing diagnostic information, reporting statistics such as the log apply rate and the redo generation rate, and detecting problems quickly with centralized monitoring, testing, and performance tools.

    Oracle Data Guard architecture overview diagram

    There are two interfaces to manage broker configurations:

    1. Oracle Enterprise Manager (Graphical User Interface)
    2. Data Guard command-line interface (DGMGRL).

    If you've implemented standby databases as part of your EBS disaster recovery or business continuity strategy, we'd recommend that you consider using Data Guard Broker, too.  We've provided step-by-step configuration instructions to use the Data Guard Broker [DGMGRL]  tool to manage Physical Standby databases for E-Business Suite Release 12. For detailed instructions, see:

    Failover with E-Business Suite environments is not automatic.  E-Business Suite environments must be failed over manually due to the need to run AutoConfig to reconfigure services on the failover site.

    What about logical standby or Oracle Streams?

    Neither logical standby nor Oracle Streams can be used for replicating E-Business Suite databases.  As documented in Maximum Availability Architecture and Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i (Note 403347.1):

    The process that mines the redo to create SQL statements for a logical standby cannot handle all data types and actions provided by the Oracle database.  The E-Business Suite uses some of those “unsupported” data types.  Thus, the Applications development group does not support the use of logical standby for an E-Business Suite implementation.

    Latest DSTv16 Timezone Patches Available for E-Business Suite R12

    Hourglass iconIf your E-Business Suite Release 11i or 12 environment is configured to support Daylight Saving Time (DST) or international time zones, it's important to keep your timezone definition files up-to-date. They were last changed in January 2011 and released as DSTv15.

    DSTv16 is now available and certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12. The DSTv16 update includes the timezone information from Olson tzdata 2011g. 

    Is Your Apps Environment Affected?

    When a country or region changes DST rules or their time zone definitions, your Oracle E-Business Suite environment will require patching if:

    • Your Oracle E-Business Suite environment is located in the affected country or region OR
    • Your Oracle E-Business Suite environment is located outside the affected country or region but you conduct business or have customers or suppliers in the affected country or region

    We last discussed the DSTv15 patches on this blog. The latest DSTv16 timezone definition file is cumulative and includes all DST changes released in earlier time zone definition files. DSTv16 includes changes to the following timezones since the DSTv15 release:

    • Africa/Cairo
    • Africa/Casablanca
    • America/Juneau
    • America/Havana
    • America/Santiago
    • Asia/Amman
    • Atlantic/Stanley
    • Europe/Istanbul
    • Pacific/Honolulu
    • Pacific/Easter
    • Pacific/Apia
    • Egypt
    • Cuba
    • Chile/Continental
    • Turkey
    • US/Hawaii
    • Chile/EasterIsland
    • Asia/Istanbul

    What Patches Are Required?

    In case you haven't been following our previous time zone or Daylight Saving Time (DST)-related articles, international timezone definitions for E-Business Suite environments are captured in a series of patches for the database and application tier servers in your environment. The actual scope and number of patches that need to be applied depend on whether you've applied previous DST or timezone-related patches. Some sysadmins have remarked to me that it generally takes more time to read the various timezone documents than it takes to apply these patches, but your mileage may vary.

    We've published the following Notes which identify the various components in your E-Business Suite environment that may need DST patches:

    What happened to EBS 11i?

    The certification of DST v16 with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i is still in progress.  Oracle's Revenue Recognition rules prohibit us from discussing certification and release dates. You're welcome to monitor or subscribe to this blog for updates, which I'll post as soon as soon as they're available.

    Reminder: Database 11.1.0.7 Premier Support ends August 2012

    It's deja vu all over again.  Since I covered the Error Correction Support (ECS) dates for the 11gR2 Database a few days ago, it's also worth reminding you of an important support milestone for the 11gR2 Database codeline.

    Premier Support for Oracle Database 11gR1 (11.1) ends on August 31, 2012.  Extended Support for 11.1 continues to the end of August 2015. These support timelines are covered in the Lifetime Support Policy for Oracle Technology Products.

    The 11.1.0.7 patchset is the terminal patchset for the 11gR1 database codeline.  If you're still on the 11.1.0.6 patchset, you should note that Error Correction Support for that ended on September 18, 2009, as detailed here:

    If you're not already on 11.2.0.2, we recommend that all Apps customers make plans for a database upgrade soon.

    No support exceptions for EBS users

    Remember that all Oracle Database support timelines apply to E-Business Suite environments.  There are no special support exemptions for EBS environments.  For an in-depth discussion about how database support timelines affect EBS customers, see:

    Reminder: Database 11.2.0.1 Error Correction Support ends Sept. 2011

    The Server Technologies division supports the previous release for 12 months after the release of the latest patchset.  The 11.2.0.2 Database patchset was released in Sept 2010.  This means that 11gR2 Database patches produced after September 13, 2011 will require the 11.2.0.2 patchset as a prerequisite.  For more details about patching timelines for individual database patchsets, see:
    If you're not already on 11.2.0.2, we recommend that all Apps customers make plans for a database upgrade soon.

    Using Audit Vault with Oracle E-Business Suite

    Oracle Audit Vault is a database option that automates the collection and consolidation of audit data to support regulatory compliance and reduce security risks.  Audit Vault provides compliance and entitle reports, alert notifications, and centralized audit policy management.  Audit Vault provides compliance reports to address regulatory requirements for database activity monitoring and auditing for:
    • Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act
    • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
    • Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS)

    Conceptual diagram showing audit data tracked by Oracle Audit Vault

     From the Oracle Audit Vault FAQ:

    Audit Vault extracts audit records produced by the database's native audit facility so no special certification is required by the application since it is transparent. Any packaged application such as Oracle E-Business Suite, PSFT, Siebel, and SAP work seamlessly with Audit Vault to collect the native audit records.

    E-Business Suite suggests that auditing and monitoring of privileged users, user sessions, database links, and database changes is a key element in monitoring and securing your applications. Please see Metalink Note 189367.1. Audit Vault supports all versions of E-Business Suite that sit on top of Oracle database versions 9.2.x forward.

    In addition, the Oracle database column, client_identifier, can be used to pass the end application user to the native audit record. E-Business Suite updates client_identifier automatically starting with version 12 of the application, PeopleTools starting with 8.50, and SAP kernal version starting with 7.10. The client_identifier value can be used in the Audit Vault reports to view the application user, OS user, and database connection user information for forensic analysis.

    No special setups required for EBS

    In other words, you can use Audit Vault's generic documentation for E-Business Suite databases.  No special EBS-specific documentation or setups are required to enable Audit Vault in EBS instances.

    Secure Enterprise Search 11.1.2.2 Certified with E-Business Suite 12

    Oracle Secure Enterprise Search 11g 11.1.2.2 is now certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 (12.1.3 and higher).  Secure Enterprise Search (SES) is an optional add-on to provides additional search capabilities for R12.  Apps users can search for E-Business Suite data using a unified search engine, with search results displayed based upon their Applications responsibilities. 

    Screenshot of Asset Inquiry screen using Secure Enterprise Search with EBS

    Certified Platforms

    Oracle Secure Enterprise Search must be installed on an SES-certified platform while integrating with Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1.3 running on a fully-certified E-Business Suite platform.  It's a bit complex to show the interplay of SES certifications against E-Business Suite certifications here.  You can refer to the Certifications section of My Oracle Support to review both E-Business Suite and Secure Enterprise Search certified configurations.

    Database Migration using 11gR2 Transportable Tablespaces Now Certified for EBS 12

    Database migration across platforms of different "endian" (byte ordering) formats using the Transportable Tablespaces (TTS) process is now certified for Oracle E-Business Suite Release R12 (12.0.4 and higher, 12.1.1 and higher) with Oracle Database 11g Release 2.

    Small endian to big endian platform mappings

    Obtaining the Required EBS Patch

    This migration process requires a patch delivered by the E-Business Suite Platform Engineering team that is 'Controlled', i.e. it requires a password obtainable from Development through Oracle Support. We released the required patch in this manner to potentially monitor customer issues (due to the nature of this technology), to gauge suitability and to monitor uptake. Customers may be required to fill out a questionnaire as part of an evaluation and approval process.

    Does it meet your requirements?

    Note that for migration across platforms of the same "endian" format, users are advised to use the Transportable Database (TDB) migration process instead for large databases. The "endian-ness" target platforms can be verified by querying the view V$DB_TRANSPORTABLE_PLATFORM using sqlplus (connected as sysdba) on the source platform:

    SQL> select platform_name from v$db_transportable_platform;
    If the intended target platform does not appear in the output, it means that it is of a different endian format from the source and Transportable Tablespaces (for large databases) or export/import should be used for database migration.

    The use of Transportable Tablespaces can greatly speed up the migration of the data portion of the database - it does not affect metadata which must still be migrated using export/import. We recommend that users initially perform a test migration with export/import on their database with the 'metrics=y' parameter to find out the relative size of data vs metadata in their database and to have a basis to compare any gains in timing. Generally speaking, the larger the relative size of data (as compared to metadata), the more likely it would be that XTTS is suitable to reduce downtime.

    TDE Tablespace Encryption 11.2.0.2 Certified with E-Business Suite

    Oracle Advanced Security is an optional licenced Oracle 11g Database add-on. Oracle Advanced Security Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) offers two different features: column encryption and tablespace encryption. TDE Tablespace Encryption 11.2.0.2 is now certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i (11.5.10.2 + ATG PF.H RUP 6 and higher) and Release 12 (Releases 12.0.6 and higher and 12.1.1 and higher).

    What is Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) ?

    Oracle Advanced Security Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) allows you to protect data at rest. TDE helps address privacy and PCI requirements by encrypting personally identifiable information (PII) such as Social Security numbers and credit card numbers.

    TDE is completely transparent to existing applications with no triggers, views or other application changes required. Data is transparently encrypted when written to disk and transparently decrypted after an application user has successfully authenticated and passed all authorization checks. Authorization checks include verifying the user has the necessary select and update privileges on the application table and checking Database Vault, Label Security and Virtual Private Database enforcement policies.

    Existing database backup routines will continue to work, with the data at rest remaining encrypted in the backup. For encryption of entire database backups, TDE can be used in combination with Oracle RMAN.

    What is Tablespace Encryption ?

    TDE Key Management architectureNew in Oracle Database 11g, the Oracle Advanced Security now includes support for tablespace encryption.

    When a tablespace is created through Enterprise Manager or on the command line, an option now exists to specify that the file be encrypted on the file system. When new data is added to the new tablespace using the insert command or datapump, entire tables will be transparently encrypted. When the database reads data blocks from the encrypted tablespace it will transparently decrypt the data blocks.

    With this certification, Oracle E-Business Suite environments can be migrated to the latest 11gR2 version of encrypted tablespaces. For more information, see:

    This database option is certified for all EBS platforms on which Oracle Database 11.2.0.2 is certified.  You can refer to the Certifications system on My Oracle Support for details about certified EBS platforms for this database release.

    Upgrading EBS 12 to DB 11g with Physical Standby Enabled

    It's possible to use Oracle Data Guard to create physical standby databases for disaster recovery.  E-Business Suite users can configure their environments with the latest version of Oracle Data Guard 11g by following the documents linked in this article:
    When upgrading a database to a new release, you can upgrade the Data Guard Physical Standby database inline to minimize the downtime. To achieve this in an EBS 12 environment, additional manual configuration steps are needed on both the primary and standby systems.  These manual steps allow redo to be shipped from the primary and applied on the standby during the upgrade.

    Diagram showing synchronization of primary and data guard physical standby environments  dataguard2.JPG
    After the upgrade, the primary and physical standby will be in sync, and the physical standby should be reconfigured using AutoConfig.

    We have now published EBS 12-specific documentation covering this upgrade scenario for both 11gR1 and 11gR2 databases: Related Articles

    Reminder: Error Correction Support for DB 10gR2 10.2.0.4 Ends April 30, 2011

    Experienced Apps DBAs know that they need to monitor database support windows for their E-Business Suite environments.  For an in-depth discussion about how database support policies affect E-Business Suite users, see:
    An important deadline is approaching if you're still running any E-Business Suite release on the 10gR2 10.2.0.4 database.  New 10gR2 patches produced after April 30, 2011 will require 10.2.0.5.  No new patches will be produced for 10.2.0.4 after that date. 

    This is covered, along with other useful topics, in the following 10gR2 Support FAQ from my colleagues in the Server Technologies division:

    Another important point from that FAQ:
    8. Will I get more time to install 10.2.0.5 if it is released on my platform close to April 30, 2011?

    Yes.  We will always support the previous patch set for at least 3 months, even if it is released after the one year to install the new patch set is up.  For example, patching for 10.2.0.4 generally expires on April 30, 2011.  If you are running 10.2.0.4 on the Commodore 64 platform and Oracle releases it after April 30, 2011, we will still patch 10.2.0.4 for you for 3 months following the 10.2.0.5 release on your platform.
    Advice for EBS sysadmins

    If you're still running your EBS environment on the 10.2.0.4 database, here are your options (in order of greatest bang-for-your-upgrade-buck):
    1. Upgrade to 11.2.0.2.  It's the latest 11gR2 database version certified with the E-Business Suite. Upgrading to this level will buy you the longest period before you're forced to do another database upgrade.
    2. Upgrade to 11.1.0.7.  It's the latest 11gR1 database version certified with the E-Business Suite.  Looking at this pragmatically, though, I don't see much value in upgrading to 11gR1.  If you're going to go to the trouble of upgrading from 10gR2 10.2.0.4 to a newer major database release, you might as well do it right and upgrade to 11.2.0.2.
    3. Upgrade to 10.2.0.5.  If you're planning on staying on 10gR2 for a while, you should be on a release for which you can get new patches and security fixes.

    E-Business Suite Release 12 Certified With Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 (Windows x64)

    windows-logo.jpg
    I am pleased to announce that Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 (12.1.1 or higher) is now certified with Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit) on both the application and database tiers through a certified migration of an existing Release 12 installation. Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 is a Windows x64 (64-bit) only operating system and is the latest Windows server version.

    Support of the E-Business Suite on this platform is achieved by a two-step process of migrating the Oracle Database first (as documented in the 11gR2 Database Tier Only Platform note), and then migrating the application tier using the process documented in the R12 Rapid Clone note. These steps and all requirements are outlined in:
    The operating systems certified on this platform are:
    • Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard
    • Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise
    • Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter
    • Microsoft Web Server 2008 R2
    Oracle E-Business Suite does not support Hyper-V and Server Core in Windows Server 2008 R2. Please review the documents below for all requirements and additional details on the use of EBS on this new platform.

    A number of external technology components are also certified with E-Business Suite R12 on this platform such as Oracle Internet Directory 11g, Oracle Discoverer 11g, Oracle Portal 11g, etc. Please review the Certifications tab on My Oracle Support for current information on platform support and certifications.
