My customer is running on Linux Red Hat EL4/IA32 with Oracle 9.2.0 and wants to migrate to a 64 bits system running Linux Red Hat EL4/x86_64 with Oracle 10g release 2.
The sap version they are running is SAP R/3 Enterprise 47x200.
Can I do a homogeneous system copy with the R3load procedure (DB export) and use this export with the installation using the target I described above? Will Oracle be automatically migrated to 64 bits? Can I do an export from release 9 and import it in release 10?
Thanks in advance for your answer. Points will be rewarded.
a) imho YES...since you're using r3load the export will be independent regarding database and/or operating system (sapnote 547.314 also states that if os and db remain the same - and only the bit setting differs - sap stills consideres this a homogeneous copy!)
b) yes, you can use this export dump from oracle 9.2 to build the import db on 10.2 (plz read sapnote 940.749)
-> you're running on kernel 6.40?
