Oracle 11 upgrade
Our ERP, BW systems are at Oracle 10.2.0.2 level and we are planning to upgrade Oracle to 11g. Shall we go directly from 10.2.0.2 to 11g? SAP suggesting to upgrade 10.2.0.2 to 10.2.0.4 first and then upgrade to 11g. But in Oracle forums at oracle site, it says we can upgrade 10.2.0.2 to 11g directly. Please suggest me?
Any one successfully up
Thanks & Regards

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 10.2.0.2, upgrade to 10.2.0.4 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.
