I have a 220.127.116.11 live db on a Sunfire v440. Ultimately I need to get this to 10g but I view this as something that will take quite some time planning and testing. In the meantime I would like to put this db onto a Linux machine. BUT
I find that the minimum version of Oracle on a x86x64 Linux server is 18.104.22.168.
I have access to a Linux x86 server.
Should I install 22.214.171.124 Oracle onto the x86 , patch to 126.96.36.199 , put the db onto this, then patch to 188.8.131.52. Then I can move it to the x86x64 machine.
or is there a better less complicated route that I might be able to follow?
Any advice gladly accepted.
What does the 440 certification matrix look like? Could it make more sense to install 10g as a 2nd OH on the 440? Do you have non-prod environments for dev and qa testing?
You also yet another option to install 11gRx, and set the database compatibility to a lower version (to turn off the advanced features until you're ready for them). HTH
