Any problems with having rp5400 production and k370 development

Our site is planning to install Oracle 11i financials on an rp5400 as the production system and use a K370 for the development system. Previously our production and development system were K class systems.
Has anyone encountered problems having the production and development on different classes of systems?
Any issues with patches behaving differently on the two classes of systems?
Thanks Eileen

No problem at all, with a variety of applications (Oracle/SAP/Ingres and various bits of in-house software).

It's quite common to have a test/dev system of lower specification than production, due to the cost of getting the duplicate set of hardware.

Eileen,

We previously had a K570 development platform with a N4000 (RP7400) production platform. We're an Informix, rather than an Oracle, shop, but we experience no difficulties due to the difference in architectures.

We use the L-Class (rp5400) for our
Oracle production server
and B-class for development.
So far no issues.

Dear Eileen,

Here, we have one rp5430 for our production database running oracle 8.1.7.4 (HP-UX 11.11) and and one L-class (L1000 - HP-UX 11.0) for development - same oracle version.

There should not be any problems as long as you recompile the developed code on the target platform.

Hope this helps!

Best Regards
