Transportable Database 12c Certified for EBS 12.2 Database Migration

Database migration across platforms of the same "endian" (byte ordering) formats using the Transportable Database (TDB) process is now certified for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2 with Oracle Database 12c Release 1 (12.1.0).

The "endian-ness" of platforms can be checked by querying the view V$TRANSPORTABLE_PLATFORM using SQL*Plus (connected as SYSDBA):

SQL> select platform_name, endian_format from v$transportable_platform;

The following is a list of relevant platforms certified for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 (12.2) with Oracle Database 12c Release 1 on the database tier:

Big Endian Platforms
Little Endian Platforms
Oracle Solaris on SPARC
Linux x86-64
HP-UX Itanium
Oracle Solaris on x86-64
IBM AIX on POWER Systems
Microsoft Windows x641
IBM: Linux on z Systems

1 Note: Microsoft Windows x64 is not yet certified and will be announced separately at a later date.

Using Transportable Database is the fastest method for migration between platforms of the same endian format. A requirement of this migration process is that the source and target database versions must match (including patch set version), so database upgrades as part of the migration cannot be done.

For migration between platforms of different endian formats, users must use alternative migration methods such as export/import (datapump).

EBS 12.0 & 12.1 DB Migration Using 12cR1 Transportable Tablespaces Now Certified


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 (12.0.6, 12.1.3) with Oracle Database 12c Release 1 (12.1.0). Migration between different platforms of the same "endian" format with 12c can be accomplished using export/import (datapump) utilities. 

This certification requires that the source database be 11gR2 (11.2.0.3 or higher) and the target database be 12cR1 (12.1.0.1 or higher).  

This migration process requires a patch delivered by our EBS Platform Engineering team that is 'Controlled', i.e. it requires a password obtainable through Oracle Support. We released the required patch in this manner to monitor customer issues and to gauge uptake.

The "endian-ness" of platforms can be checked by querying the view V$TRANSPORTABLE_PLATFORM using sqlplus (connected as sysdba):

        SQL> select platform_name, endian_format from v$transportable_platform;

Here's a list of relevant platforms certified for the EBS R12 with 12cR1 on the database tier:

 

Big Endian Platforms
Little Endian Platforms
Oracle Solaris on SPARC
Linux x86-64
HP-UX Itanium
Oracle Solaris on x86-64
IBM AIX on POWER Systems
MS Windows x64

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 TTS is suitable as a migration process to reduce downtime.

Pending Certifications

Testing with 12cR1 as the source is still pending.

Full transportable export/import, a new feature in 12c to move an entire database, is not certified for use with E-Business Suite databases yet. 

Transportable Database (TDB), a migration process for platforms of the same "endian" format, is also a pending 12cR1 certification exercise.
