EBS R12 on IBM P-Series Running RedHat Linux

Posted by Navdeep Saini on April 29, 2008

Few days ago, one of our customer had this interesting question which caught us little offguard. Question was, that whether EBS R12 is certified for RedHat Linux running on IBM P-series (IBM power based system) or not?

Checking metalink it looks that, it should just be fine. If you go to metalink you will see the following:

Which suggests that oracle database on Linux running on IBM Power-pSeries, runs just fine. However a closer look at metalink note:341507.1, you will find that no-where it talks of EBS R11i or R12 or related products. Another look at metalink certify:

Important thing to note here is that for Apps Tier on Linux, only x86 and x86-64 platforms are supported which means that only processor chipsets like x-86 (Intel based), AMD64,EMT64T are supported. Anyother processor chip (e.g. IBM P series which uses IBM POWER5+ or POWER5 processor) is NOT supported for APPS TIER, even though they can run Linux on it (as per RedHat certification: RedHat Enterprise Linux: Server Version comparison chart ).

Jist of the discussion is that on IBM Power with Linux, (pSeries, iSeries, System p5 and System i5) oracle EBS can run only in split configuration. Which means database tier can run on IBM Power with RedHat Linux and Apps Tier has to have AIX as OS software. However If you want to run Apps Tier on Linux, it has to be on supported chipsets only e.g. x-86, x-86-64 etc.
