Oracle Database version compatibility and support matrix

— Checked for relevance on Januari 21, 2017

The Oracle Database version compatibility matrix and version support status matrix are almost mandatory when installing or upgrading clients or servers.

For information about patches, go here: Oracle database patches for Linux and Windows (on Metalink).

For announcements of security fixes, go to Critical Patch Updates, Security Alerts and Third Party Bulletin.

    We are currently using Oracle database Ver 10.0.2.2 on IBM AIX 5.1 If we were to update our IBM to AIX 6.1 does our current Oracle 10.0.2.2 compatible or is there any update require.

    Kindly need some advise, Appreciate if you could provide some compatibility matrix for IBM AIX 6.1 with Oracle Database.

      Hello Joshaw,

      For this you should look at ‘Certifications’ on My Oracle Support. You will see it in the top menu.
      I guess you mean the 10.2.0.2 version?

      When you want to search, choose:
      Product: Oracle Database
      Release: 10.2.0.2

      Now when you click ‘Platform:’ it will already show supported systems with a green ‘tick’. Selecting ‘IBM AIX on POWER Systems (64-bit), you will see it is only certified for 5.2 and 5.3.
      Leave Platform set to ‘Any’ and you will get a list of all supported platforms.

      Please also verify this yourself on Metalink!

      Cheers, Ian.

    Currently we have Oracle database 9.2.0.8 and AIX 5.3 in Production.
    We have got request to upgrade existing low TL version to TL 12. I need to check the impact of this on Database. Oracle 9.2.0.8 is compatilble on AIX 5.3 but will upgrading TL version give any impact on Oracle ?
    Any change/installation is required for Oracle to work properly?
