SAPINST Oracle 9i NonUnicode export to be imported as Unicode in Oracle 11g


My scenario is -

Source System:

SAP ECC - 5.0 Non-Unicode

Oracle -

Expected Target System:

SAP ECC - 5.0 Unicode

Oracle - 11.2

I am planning to take export of source system. Install new Unicode system using system copy method directly on Oracle 11.2 importing Oracle 9i export.

Would this be possible as SAP is not supporting direct upgrade from 9i to 11g using DBUA method ?

Thanks & Regards,

    Good idea, simply using export and import into unicode system. This will never work.

    for oracle upgrade follow Note 1434131 - Release of Oracle 11.2 versions for older SAP versions

    and Note 1322715 - Unicode FAQs

      If you export a database on whatever OS and whatever database you can import it on whatever OS and whatever database, those exports are database and operating system independent.

      To answer you question: YES, it's supported (technically) and works.

      For the installation itself follow (if you're on Unix)
