Hi Kellyn,

I've had 11gR1 in production for over a year now, and it's been quite stable.

11gR2 is still pretty new, but, we're testing some new XML DB functionality on 
it.  So far, it seems to be stable.  This is simply a proof-of-concept at this 
point, and very low traffic, so, no production like loads on it, but, so far so 
good.  One issue, Netbackup, which my backup admin tells me is the latest 
version, can't backup 11gR2 using RMAN.  Backup to tape w/o Netbackup MML in 
place works fine, but as soon as you try to do a backup w/ Netbackup MML, it 
crashes w/ ORA-7445.  So, I currently can't effectively back it up.  I'm hoping 
the next release of Netbackup will resolve that issue.

Hope that helps,

Subject: 11g R2 Feedback?

My manager is asking about positive and negative feedback on 11g now that R2 
has been announced.  I have not heard anything specific outside of a few patch 
Anyone have feedback for me on 11g?  I've just about had it with all the bug 
patching and work arounds for our huge compressed/partitioned/parallel 
everything 10g environments... :)
