I did a Risc to Itanium migration on 9.2 many years ago. It was a PeopleSoft system, other than the binaries being different and that it was 64bit vs. 32 bit, there are no major differences. There's a utility script in $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin that Oracle created just for this occurrence. Can't for the life of me remember it, Alzheimer's hitting I guess. I will warn you of one side effect, positive, just about all of your users are going to wonder where the faster response time came from.

Good day all,  

I would appreciate hearing of any experiences of Oracle database migration from HP-UX PA-RISC to HP-UX Itanium, especially relative to Oracle spincount, cursor sharing, HP-UX config, and any other lurking gems.
