Updated Platform Migration Procedures Certified for EBS 12

source_target_migration.png
We are pleased to announce the certification of the Platform Migration Methodology for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.  The existing documentation has been updated to be generic for all Release 12 versions.

The platform migration process provides a way to quickly and easily move an existing Oracle E-Business Suite application tier to a different platform, allowing you to utilize different hardware for the application tier.

The migration utility retains the exact Oracle E-Business Suite patch level, so that no APPL_TOP or database synchronization is necessary.  This also allows you to retain many customizations.

The existing procedure available for 12.0 has been optimized and modified for all Release 12.x versions. You can find more details in the following document available in My Oracle Support:
Some additional considerations
  • This migration methodology requires at least E-Business Suite version 12.0.4 for Release 12.0 and 12.1.1 (or higher) for Release 12.1.
  • This methodology applies to the Application Tier (middle tier) only.  The database tier is not covered by this process.
  • Migration to Windows-based target servers is not supported at this time
  • The platform migration procedure is not supported with Linux running on IBM System z (Source or Target) at this time.
Your feedback is welcome

We're extremely interested in hearing about your use cases and your experiences with these updated procedures. Please post a comment here or drop us a line with your thoughts.

Certified Oracle RAC Scenarios for Oracle E-Business Suite Cloning

[Editor's note: EBS cloning can be pretty involved. There are many different cloning scenarios, including cloning a RAC-based environment to an identical RAC environment, cloning from a RAC-based environment to a non-RAC environment, and adding or subtracting RAC nodes while cloning. Our Applications Technology Group has had to make some decisions about the relative priority of these scenarios. Filesystems like ASM, OMF, OCFS2, and NFS add further complexity to the certification matrix. If you would like to share your opinions about these decisions, post a comment below. Your feedback will be sent directly to our ATG Product Management team.]

Cloning an Oracle E-Business Suite system that uses an Oracle Real Application Clusters (Oracle RAC) enabled database involves numerous different technology components and steps, and would therefore be a complex, error-prone process if carried out manually. To speed up, simplify, and enhance the reliability of the process, Oracle offers the following tools for use in cloning RAC-enabled Oracle E-Business Suite systems:
