Oracle 11203 on RedHat6

Dear all,

I plan to do heterogenous system migration from HP-UX to RedHat for SAP ECC 6.0 (only ABAP).

I need to install Oracle 11203 on RedHat 6. Can you please help with the java installation? Must I use the SAP's JavaVirtual Machine (JVM) 1.4.2, named SAP JVM 4 ?

Can I use the default installed with OS :

java version "1.7.0_09-icedtea"

OpenJDK Runtime Environment (rhel-2.3.8.0.el6_4-x86_64)

OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.7-b01, mixed mode) ?

Thank you inadvance.

BR,

Ruzica

    Hi Ruzica,

    Additionally you may refer SAPĀ  Note 171356 - SAP software on Linux: Essential information. To understand pre-requisites of OS and DB before performing the installation.

    • Hi Ruzica,

      Note 1172419 - Linux: Supported Java versions on the x86_64 platform has information on JRE version suitable for RHEL 6. You can download the same from IBM site.

      As rightly mentioned by Sunny, since its only ABAP system you can go ahead with JRE else for JAVA system strictly you need to use JVM as per note 1172419.

    Hi Ruzica,

    The question is why do you want to use another JVM instead of SAPJVM? Do you have a specific reason? This is because it is recommended to use SAPJVM by the SAP ECC.

      Hi,

      If you are trying to install ABAP based system whether it is new installation or system copy, you can work with already installed JVM. But if As Java is involved , you should SAPJVM only.

      Thanks

    Hi,

    Since it is ABAP only system, so, you can install Oracle with default JDK/JRE as well.

    Please check below link as well for installation of SAP JVM.

    Good Day

    As you are planning to migrate the SAP system from HP-UX to RHEL 6, please read this SAP Note.

    Note 1496410 - Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.x: Installation and Upgrade

    This answers your question about the use of SAP JVM as well.

    Good Luck

    Cheers

    RB
