IBM is pleased to advise customers that Oracle has certified its 11g Release 2 database with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2. This certification was completed through the excellent IBM and Oracle technical collaboration. On February 6, 2013, Oracle announced the availability of the Oracle Database 11g Release 2 with Red Hat 6.2 on the IBM System z platform. Customers who have been testing Oracle Database 11g Release 2 on this version may now proceed to production with confidence that Oracle will fully support running on this new version. Information on the certification is available on Oracle’s website “My Oracle Support” (see section “For additional information”, below). The certified release of the Oracle Database 11g Release 2 is 188.8.131.52.0 or higher. It is required to use RHEL 6 Update 2 or later as a minimum version, as issues have been identified with kernels before version 2.6.32-220. The recommended path for upgrade is to install or upgrade the Oracle Database to version 184.108.40.206 on Red Hat EL 5 and after that upgrade, move to Red Hat EL 6.
