Windows and Oracle upgrade

Der Experts,

Now we are on Windows 2003 and Oracle

We want to upgrade to Windows 2012 and

Here my doubt is:

1) Windows 2003 to windows 2012.. Is it possible?

A) As per some notes by using in place upgrade we can do it but it will be two step process.. Means 2003 to 2008 R2 and then 2008 R2 to 2012.

If we go with standard process as Export and Import .. Then we can do export of existing database first.. Then uninstall 2003 server and install a fresh 2012 and then import exported DB.

Here my doubt is now we are on Oracle ... So shall we go ahead with importing of DB in 2012 since 10G is not certified for 2012...

Do we get any problem on this??

Our plan is like install 2012 server and then importing 10G exported DB and then upgrade it to 11G

So please let me know whether this correct process or do we need to follow any other process?

    Hi KK

    Kindly follow the steps to upgrade the exiting SAP system to Windows 2012 with Oracle DB 11.2

    1. Could you share the SAP system version details?

    2. First you have to upgrade the Oracle DB version from 10.2 to 11.2 (Based on your SAP version). Oracle 10.2 will not supported Windows 2012 server.

    3. After upgrade the DB you can perform the SAP Homogeneous system copy from Windows 2003 to 2012 (Not on upgrade the OS). If possible you can create the Sandbox system with current SAP system environment perform the DB upgrade to 11.2 & OS migration to 2012.

    4. Before that Kindly refer the SAP upgrade & system copy guide from below link. based on your OS / DB & SAP version

    Dear KK,

    In my last project we did some thing like this

    We did a system copy of the Solution Manager system and created a Fallback system in case things did not work out

    Later on we performed "In Line upgrade from Windows 2008 to Windows 2012 Server". It worked well.
