Understanding the Minimum Requirements for the Lift and Shift Process
The following are some of the considerations which users need to plan before migrating environments to Oracle Cloud:
Supported Oracle versions are 11g and 12c.
If you do not want to make application access public, other alternatives like VPN must be evaluated.
If you do not want your web sites to be public, you will have to work with the Cloud team to figure out alternatives. (For example, VPN.)
All third party integration will need to be manually reviewed and set up.
If the lifted environment requires COBOL, then it must be manually installed and configured after Cloud Manager shifts the environment.
Users may have to get new certificates for SSL and SFTP support.
The minimum PeopleTools version should be PeopleTools 8.55.12.
The Minimum PeopleSoft applications version should be PeopleSoft 9.2
Lift and Shift is supported only on Linux environments. Any OS specific customizations will not be lifted and must be manually re-configured on the shifted environment.
Any application specific software/installations/configurations will need to be manually configured.
Lift of non-unicode Database is not supported for this release.
Lift of RAC Database is not supported for this release.
Lift of TDE enabled Database .mine is not supported for this release.
Lift should be performed on a Linux system with Python 2.7.9 set as default for Python.
When performing Remote Lift and connecting to the remote machine with a password, please ensure not to have special characters such as *? [ ] ' " \ # ; & ( ) | ^ < > new-line space and tab in the password.
