EBS R12(12.0 and 12.1) - Roadmap for Windows to Linux Migration

In this post, I will give a roadmap for migrating an EBS R12 from Windows 32 bit to Linux 64 bit (Oracle Linux 5). Actually, this roadmap is applicable for any supported EBS migrations regardless of the source and Target Operating Systems.

Also a Real Life story which will give you the detailed patches, command and approaches used in this kind of a migration, will be released in this blog in the following days. So just be contented with this post, while I m preparing the other one.

Note that : These documents include directions to other documents as well.
If the target and source endians are the same, we use transportable database for the db migration and 
we install only the techstack and apply the patch that is supplied by Oracle in reply to our uploaded manifest of customer-specific files
  • Root Document to follow -> R11i / R12: Oracle E-Business Suite Upgrades and Platform Migration (Doc ID 1377213.1)
  • Database Migration Document-> R12 (12.0/12.1): 'Using Transportable Database to migrate Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.0 and 12.1 using Oracle Database 10g Release 2 or 11g Enterprise Edition' - MOS Document 734763.1
  • Application Migration Document -> Application Tier Platform Migration with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 (Doc ID 438086.1)
