A customer of mine says he has been told by Symantec that Oracle 10.2.0.4 on RHEL5.6 on SFHA 5.1SP3 is not supported and they must upgrade to SFHA 6.0 as the customer has been told "update 6" of RHEL5 is not supported with 5.1.x
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (RHEL 5) with Update 3 (2.6.18-128.el5 kernel) till RHEL 5 with Update 9
Support for Oracle patch 18.104.22.168 is coming shortly. Please review the information I sent to my customers on Monday below.
The BU has confirmed that we will shortly support 22.214.171.124 and the announcement will be made this Friday. I believe that support will only be for SFHA 6.0.3 and later.
There is a known problem with Oracle patch 126.96.36.199. This patch was released in September and is incompatible with Symantec Oracle Disk Manager (ODM). Please note that Oracle’s base install patch level is 188.8.131.52 and the recommended patch is 11.2.03 and those versions do not break ODM. Customers that are using ODM and patch to version 184.108.40.206 will be unable to start their ODM managed databases.
Symantec does support the latest full release of Oracle RDBMS which is version 12c. No other currently supported versions of Oracle RDBMS are affected – this issue is only with the 220.127.116.11 patchset. Please inform all customers of this issue as we do not yet have a date for resolution and/or updated patches. I am monitoring this issue and will be updating the team as items develop. In the meantime please let me know if customers have any questions relating to this patch or other questions about Oracle support. Thanks.
