NTW04 can be installed with Oracle 10 ?

I need to clarify if the NTW04 (Basis 640) can be installed directly with Oracle 10g.

From the PAM oracle 10g is supported for NTW04, but from the installation guide is not clear if it's possible or not to install directly with it.

Someone already did it ?

We would like to avoid the Oracle upgrade from Ora 92 to 10g

    It is possible, but we have not used the DVDs that are delivered by SAP. I have downloaded the DVDs from marketplace and done the installation.

    Please check these notes for further references.

    Note 675940 - SAP Web AS 6.40 Installation on Windows: Oracle

    Note 949116 - Oracle 10g Support on Windows: 6.40-Based SAP Systems

      I did it.

      I used R3load in order to do a heterogeneous system copy of NW04 from Solaris with Oracle 9i into Linux with Oracle 10g.

      It is supported because R3load is exporting the DB content into a database independent format, then you can user r3load to import it to any database.

      This procedure is shortened, because you actually "skip" the DB upgrade while you importing the DB contents directly into oracle 10g.

      At the target machine you need to use the latest "NW04 Master DVD" there you will see that you can choose between Oracle 9i and 10g, just bear in mind that you still need oracle 9 client, because SAP kernel 6.40 is compiled with oracle client 9.

      Good luck,
