Another useful link for certifications...

So I published my last blog entry and then sent a note to a couple of colleagues, pointing out that I had out-blogged them, and of course my colleague James Morrow immediately responded, pointing out that this link is quite handy:

James is indeed correct. I followed the link and saw something that instantly cast doubt on what Certify was noting for running Release 12.1.3 with RDBMS 10.2.0.4:


Yep, this link says that 10.2.0.4 is certified, while Certify says it is not. So, I figure this means one of the following:
  1. Certify is wrong
  2. There are Operating System combinations other than the one that I selected (Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit) (10) that are certified with RDBMS 10.2.0.4
  3. This link is wrong 
If I were a truly dogged researcher, I would sit here and slog through My Oracle Support, searching for Operating System combinations that are certified with RDBMS 10.2.0.4. But it's the end of the day, and I'm losing my inspiration. So I'll suffice it to suggest one more pearl of wisdom - if you are researching a software combination and Certify says that it is not Certified, it would still be worthwhile to log an SR with Oracle Support to confirm it. I would think that being the people who keep Certify constantly up-to-date has to be a pretty tough job. And I am very glad it is not my job.
