I have time to answer this.  

Our sys admin wants to do a hardware refresh essentially moving from solaris Sun Sparce 5.8, 5.9 to 5.10 (and virtualize) on Sun Sparc. Management has asked him to write up (cost analysis), and consider other platforms such as HU-UX, x86, AIX, ...    

Especially Solaris 5.10 on x86. (cost).  

Not sure if your first reaction is the same as mine....  

I'll check the obvious like pre-requisites for transportable tablespaces, but there may be considerations that are not coming directly to mind that have costs... Like will all my existing tools continue to work. The down time and testing. Applications and oracle binaries need to be re-installed,  

These are fairly straight forward and out of the box. Is there something in your experiences you can recall and mention? We have,,, and, Also Enterprise manager Grid Control, (and this would be a new IP I'm sure - groan).  

Is software still available for new platform?
