    Unanswered: Oracle DB Server Migration Checklist

    Hello everyone!

    We will be having a meeting with our client regarding their Database Server Migration (They are planning to buy a new server). Their current database is Oracle 10gR2, they will not upgrade to 11g, they just plan to migrate to a new more powerful machine.

    I was planning to ask the following questions.
    1. Specifications of the current server and the new one.
    2. Operation system (I think they will use same OS, just an updated one)
    3. Can the business afford full downtime on current servers?
    4. Size of the DB, because it can take hours to move large files.

    Is there anything more? And is there documentation regarding Server Migration (Change of machine only, not database upgrade or anything, I'm trying to search for it though)

    will this be a 32-bit to 64-bit transition?
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.

    Thanks. It's 64-bit to 64-bit.
