Hi,

I need your expertise advise. My client is having Dbtier and AppsTier on windows 2003(32 bit) server. Now we are planning to move to 12.1.3 on windows 2008R2(64 bit). DB from 10.2.0.3 to 11gR2. I am going through metlaink notes. What I uderstood is as RapidInstall 12.1.1 cannot be directly done on 64 bit. they are suggesting to upgrade teh windows 2003(32 bit) to 12.1.1 and then do rapid clone to 2008R2(64bit). My doubt here is...when to upgrade the DB. as 11gR2 installation available on 64bit.. which is the right step.
first upgrade it to 11gR2 at 32 bit and then migrate it to 64bit and apply OLAP sizing
or secondly..install 11gR2(64bit) installation on Windows2008R2(64 bit)..

Actually lots of doubts arising..Please mail me ur response at sailasudhaj@gmail.com..

Particularly those we are working on this kind of environment(windows).. please suggest me.
