Ive been scowering the web and metalink to find a finite list of
supported /desupported versions
Ive found one list on metalink bit couldn't bookmark the page and cant
find it again.
All the websites I have found have just bits and pieces....

Is there a known list of supported/desupported database versions &
Operating Systems?

Thanks
bob

    hi
    if you do a search on metalink with the following text

    Oracle Server (RDBMS) Releases Support Status Summary

    then you will get with the fifth result the information you want.

    Bob - I don't feel Oracle makes it easy. They keep changing the location and
    format. On Metalink, have you clicked on the tab on the left side labeled
    "Certify & Availability"? Once you are in that section, there are tabs at
    the top for "Product Availability" and "Desupport Notices". I don't think
    the finite list of supported/desupported versions exists, but you can get
    the information you need a piece at a time and gradually build your list.
    Does that meet your requirements?

    Hi,

    I am not sure if it is a definitive list but on the left side of MetaLink
    is a button "Certify and Availability". It should provide you with all info
    you need.

    Certify - Oracle's Certification
    Matrices

    application provides product
    certification information,
    including patches and

    application, please review our
    online documentation.
    NEW! Desupport Notices and
    Product Availability are now
    part of Certify.
    To view Desupport Notices,
    select "1. View Certifications
    by Product" then select
    "Desupport Advisories and

    Yes, for sure they certainly do not make it easy. much akin to using the
    space shuttle to cross the street) I did manage to find the info though
    with your guys suggestions. Interestingly enough I entered desupported,
    desupported versions, version support all with no results...

    What perplexes me now is the fact that Oracle Support told me on the
    phone that they don't support any version less than 8.1.7 on WIN2K
    server... I have 7.3.4, 8.0.5, 8.1.6.3 and now 8.1.7 from NT40 to WIN2K
    From the documents on the web(below) it appears all platforms are
    treated equal, so?? I suppose I have to propose that question to the
    support tech again when I get them on the phone, now that I have the
    actual documents from their website. Below is a clipping from pertaining
    to the versions Im interested in.

    Thanks to all for pointing me in the right direction..
