The transition to extended support for EBS 18.104.22.168 is right around the corner - November. Some of ya'all are obviously going to stay with 11i and take advantage of the one year of free extended support. Fair enough…I've said before it would make sense for some customers to wait.
For those of you waiting to upgrade, I'd like to bring one really important point to your attention: Oracle's Extended Support policy for 22.214.171.124 requires a minimum baseline patch level. You can read about that minimum baseline in the following Metalink documents:
- 883202.1: Minimum Baseline Patch Requirements for Extended Support on Oracle E-Business 11.5.10
- 1116887.1: Critical E-Business Suite 11i (11.5.10) Extended Support Information on Minimum Baseline Patch Requirements
You will need to meet the minimum baseline patch requirements if you intend to receive Extended Support from Oracle for EBS 126.96.36.199. You may want to start reading now...
NOTE: Thanks to the OAUG Customer Support Council for bringing this issue to everyone's attention.
