Oracle 8i on new Itanium systems

Hello,

I have a cliente that need to run this oracle products:

-Oracle DataBase 8.1.7.0.0
-Reports 6.0.8.14.2
-Forms 6.0.8.14.1

Are these products supported by Oracle and/or HP to run on the new Itanium rx2600/rx5600 HP-UX systems.

Where can I find official HP information about this.

Regards,

Miguel R.

Re: Oracle 8i on new Itanium systems

from waht I can find on Oracle's Metalink, the answer is "not yet". Here is the latest Metalink forum posting on the subject ...

RDBMS Version: Oracle 8.1.7.3
Operating System and Version: HP UX 11i

Product Version:

Itanium processors on HP UX 11i

There has been a thinking in our company to examine the feasability of quailifying our product on HP Server rx4610/9610 running on HP UX 11i Unix OS. Our Product is ported among others on HP UX 11.0 os /HP 9000 series servers and Oracle8i RDBMS.

rx4610/9610 HP servers rum on Intel Itanium Processors. I understand that Oracle 8i /9i RDBMS or any other oracle product is not certified/ported to run on Intel Itanium processors even though rs4610/9610 servers run on HP UX 11i. Is this understanding correct ? If so, when can we expect Oracle to port its products to run on rs4610/9610 servers running on intel itanium chipset and HP UX 11i.

Thanks and Regards

Hi Jugal,

There are no exact details available on this.

According to available information, a trial version, ie. developer
release of 9i that runs on Itanium will be available on OTN for
download.Apart from this there seems to be no information on the current status.

I am trying to get more information on this.Will let you know if
any useful news is available on this issue.


Thanks.
