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.

10gR2 10.2.0.4 Certified on Solaris x86-64 and HP Tru64 for EBS 11i

Our Applications Platforms Group continues to round out our certification matrix for supported operating systems for the E-Business Suite.  They've released two new platform certifications for Apps 11i on the 10gR2 (10.2.0.4) database:

Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i (11.5.10.2) is now certified with Oracle Database Server 10gR2 version 10.2.0.4 on Sun Solaris x86-64 (64-bit).  The Solaris x86-64 certification is for Solaris 10 and is a database tier only certification (also known as a "split configuration"), where the application tier must be on a certified Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i platform.

E-Business Suite Release 11i (11.5.10.2) is now certified with Oracle Database Server 10gR2 version 10.2.0.4 on and HP Tru64.  This certification is for HP Tru64 5.1b and is a fully-certified configuration for both the application server and database tiers.

64-bit Support for the E-Business Suite

[Oct 15, 2007 Update:  Added 64-bit platforms certified for Release 12]

[Sep 15, 2006 Update:  Clarified minimum requirements for 9iR2 and 10gR1 configurations.]

[May 24, 2006 Update:  This post has been revised with a clearer explanation of our certified configurations for 64-bit platforms.]

Here's a certification question that seems to recur in waves corresponding to hardware vendor announcements, namely, "Does the E-Business Suite work on 64-bit platforms?"

Itanium Chip:

The short answer is, "Yes, in a number of different configurations."

The following are the platforms supported for the application tier and the database tier of E-Business Suite Release 11i:
  • HP-UX PA RISC (64-bit)
  • Sun Solaris SPARC (64-bit)
  • IBM AIX (64-bit)
  • HP Tru64 UNIX (64-bit)
  • Windows x86 (32-bit)
  • Linux x86 (32-bit)
The following are the platforms supported for the application tier and the database tier of E-Business Suite Release 12:
  • HP-UX PA RISC (64-bit)
  • HP-UX Itanium (64-bit)
  • Sun Solaris SPARC (64-bit)
  • IBM AIX (64-bit)
  • Windows x86 (32-bit)
  • Linux x86 (32-bit)
  • Linux x86-64 (64-bit)
Supported via "Split Configurations"

In Release 11i, we certify and support a split configuration, where:
  • The database tier runs on a platform not supported for the application tier
  • The application server tier runs on one of the six platforms listed above
For the 9i Release 2 database (9iR2) and the 10g Release 1 database (10gR1), we support the following additional 64-bit platforms on the database tier in a split configuration for Release 11i:
  • HP-UX Itanium
  • Linux Itanium
  • Linux x86-64
  • Windows Server 2003 Itanium
9iR2 split configurations require the E-Business Suite Release 11.5.8 at minimum, and 10gR1 split configurations require 11.5.9 CU2 at minimum.

What About the 10gR2 Database?

[Editor Sep 15 Update:  For a discussion about the latest 10gR2 split configurations, see 10gR2 Database Split Configurations for Release 11i]

How About the Application Server Tier?

Application tier support on HP-UX Itanium as well as Linux x64 is planned for Release 12, and is being evaluated, but is not yet committed or planned, for Linux Itanium, Windows Itanium, and Windows x64.  Support for Sun Solaris SPARC, HP-UX PA RISC, and IBM AIX (all 64-bit) will be continued.
