        Was recently involved in a similar upgrade, but they moved to AIX instead and yes It's a SAP thing, stay in the box don't stray, we know what's best. Darn, sounds like Microcrap.

Subject: Tru64 with 10gR2 for SAP R/3

At the request of management, I am inquiring.

Is anyone running 10gR2 on Tru64(5.1b) for SAP(6.20)? If so, how did the upgrade go (can remember back that far ;) )?

The short of it is we are planning to upgrade from

The long explanation is that this is part of a cross-platform migration from nearing end-of-life Tru64 Alpha machines to HP ProLiant series servers running Linux. Both are little endian so transportable tablespaces was the planned method to migrate our ~1TB database. SAP support for 10gR2 on Tru64 is not clear from the OSS notes I've read, though is the only release of 10g supported on other operating systems.
