Hello out there!
I suppose that it's very important to test an upgrade in an environment
similar to production.
Lets say production environment is AIX, database-size about 100Gb.
Can I (=is it meaningfull) to test upgrade in windows-environment when
production is AIX?
I guess that you perhaps get problems you not will get in production:
spending time on irrelevant problems
I guess that I'll not see the relevant problems in test.
Are I'm correct? Is it really a problem, even if both platforms are
certified for Oracle?
Any experience/links, best/worst practices?
What path to use - migrate or exp/imp?
