Oracle 11 upgrade


Our ERP, BW systems are at Oracle level and we are planning to upgrade Oracle to 11g. Shall we go directly from to 11g? SAP suggesting to upgrade to first and then upgrade to 11g. But in Oracle forums at oracle site, it says we can upgrade to 11g directly. Please suggest me?

Any one successfully up

Thanks & Regards

Hello Srinivas,

Oracle does allows a lot of things, but SAP is More restrictive and does not allows a lot of things. This is one of them.

AFAIK, Oracle also allows you to upgrade from older releases, and it is "technically" possible.

Unfortunately, SAP does NOT allow it as mentioned before.

If you run into a problem and request help from SAP, you will get a "NOT Supported", restore, upgrade to then upgrade to 11gR2 then install the latest SBP.

If you have a problem with that path, then SAP will help.

Is it up to you if you want to play safe or risk.
