All edition types of the above operating systems are supported. Both the 32-bit and 64-bit architectures are supported. Use the JDK architecture that matches the operating system architecture.

The client platform must also meet the operating system version and desktop manager requirements of the Java SE Development Kit (JDK) used by the DMU. The requirements for JDK6 are listed here and for JDK7 here. For additional HP-UX and AIX requirements, contact the vendor.

The requirements for the display device setup are:

  • Colors: 65536 or more
  • Resolution: 1024x768 or more
Database to Be Migrated

The DMU is supported to migrate databases in version and later on all platforms on which the patch set is available. No additional database patches need to be installed on top of version or later for this purpose.

The database support information for older releases is provided below, separately for the Unix-like platforms and for the Microsoft Windows platforms.


Unix-like Platforms


On Unix-like platforms, the DMU is currently supported to migrate databases whose combination of version number and platform is marked with 'Yes' in the matrix below. Furthermore, patch #9825461 must be installed in a database older than before you can connect to it with the DMU. See the Getting Started page for further details.

* Use the version of the patch #9825461.
** Use the version of the patch #9825461.
*** Use the version of the patch #9825461.
**** Before migrating a PDB, see FAQ question #25.

Do not install the patch #9825461:

  • on any database version not explicitly listed above, or
  • if the opatch patch installation utility reports a patch conflict.

You may be able to force the opatch utility to install the patch #9825461 in the above situations, but opatch will roll back any patches conflicting with the patch #9825461 potentially causing already fixed code defects to reappear. If your database version does not allow you to install the patch #9825461, contact Oracle Support to discuss your options.


Microsoft Windows Platforms


The DMU is currently supported on the Microsoft Windows operating systems, Intel/AMD 32-bit and 64-bit platforms, to migrate the following database releases:

  • Patch 46 or later
  • Patch 10 or later
  • Patch 39 or later
  • Patch 12 or later
  • Patch 6 or later
  • or later on any patch level

No additional database patches need to be installed on Microsoft Windows.
