Support for Oracle 10 during upgrade to ERP 606


I'm approaching an upgrade project where the source release is 47 Ent, based on Basis 640 and Oracle 10204.

The target release should be ERP 606 on (based on Nw 731), so we are going to include during the upgrade the latest EHP available .

But from the PAM I see the EHP 6 is only supported with Oracle 11, and it's not planned to perform the oracle upgrade before the Sap upgrade  (the oracle upgrade to 11203 will be performed AFTER the upgrade, during the Unicode conversion that it's going to follow).

I need to know if it is allowed to use the Oracle 10 with just for the upgrade , whitout to go live whit this RDBMS release

Can I use the Oracle 10204 to perform the Sap upgrade to 606 , or the upgrate tool it's going to halt me during the prepare modules requiring the Oracle 11 upgrade before to ho ahead ?

    As per PAM you cannot go with EHP 6 without Oracle 11g.

    Its best if you can write to SAP on this .

    For a test run , you can go with Oracle client and check if your plan works. SUM tool might just stop you at the very beginning . If it lets you ,then continue with the upgrade and see if it works.

    But its always best to upgrade the Oracle before you upgrade.

      Thanks for the feedback Nicholas.

      I'm going to adapt  my plan accordingly:

      -first the unicode conversion, importing the R3 47 Ent UC environment over Oracle 11

      -second the upgrade to EHP6

      At least in this way if for whatever reason the upgrade gone bad, or too long, we will be able to reopen the source system allowing the businnes of the customer.

    If the Original question still needs to be answered, i can confirm that EHP6 requires oracle 11.

    I've personally undertaken a EHP upgrade and the installer refuses to work unless oracle 11 is installed.
