SA 10.6 on rhel5 -workround for MajorOS upgrade

Hi guys,

Since Major OS upgrade (rhel5 to rhel8) is not possible on SA. we need to figure out the workaround, as rhel5 is EOL times ago.

The plan is to install the new SA 2020.11 on rhel8 and when it becomes fully operational to connect it (to switch over) to the old DB (current Oracle SA DB) and then to recertify all agents.

We base our plan on the fact that in upgrade from 10.6x to 2020.11 it is officially stated that DB is out of the upgrade scope.

Does it make sense to you? Has anybody done it this way or similar?
