Is ArcSDE10.1 fully supported on Oracle Database 10g Release 2 (64bit) 10.2.0.4  on Linux red hat 5 enterprise 64 bit + Update 7?

The ArcSDE 10.1 official documentation talk about only of
Oracle Database 10g Release 2 (64bit) 10.2.0.1 (there aren't 10.2.0.2, 10.2.0.3, 10.2.0.4 versions) on Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS/ES 5 (64-bit) + Update 7

Even though the question has changed, the correct answer has already been provided.  
Read Asrujit's answer (changing "10" to "11"), and follow the link to the support policy page.

Giuseppe,

Per Esri Supported Environment Policy, ESRI will continue to support environments if they meet or exceed the base build environment and that environment is known to not fail.  Hence oracle 10g R2 (64-bit) 10.2.0.4 is supported as the base build 10.2.0.1 is supported, with the release of ArcSDE 10.1.

Non-certification of an environment does not necessarily mean it is not supported. That environment is supported if it meets or exceeds the base build environment and that environment is known to not fail. Environments that are known to not work are usually documented on the product support page as soon as that information is available.

The only 10.2.0.1 that's ever been supported was Oracle Express.  Oracle 10.2.0.1 has
always been subject to strange failures, and therefore was never supported.  ArcGIS 10.1
is documented as supporting 10.2.0.3 (which means 10.2.0.3 and 10.2.0.4/5/6).

Yup, that was a mistake. The supported Base build should have been Oracle 10.2.0.3.

Thanks for pointing that out Vince.

I'm sorry there is a mistake in my question becouse I wrote 10g instead of 11g!

The correct question is:

Is ArcSDE10.1 fully supported on Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (64bit) 11.2.0.4 on Linux red hat 5 enterprise 64 bit + Update 7?

The ArcSDE 10.1 official documentation talk about only of
Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (64bit) 11.2.0.1 (there aren't 11.2.0.2, 11.2.0.3, 11.2.0.4 versions) on Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS/ES 5 (64-bit) + Update 7

Frankly, I think your OS version is ancient (and therefore vulnerable) -- I'm using 5.10 with
30-odd patches applied.  Running the newest database on a neglected OS is still risky.

The same Esri service pack policy that applies to databases applies to operating systems.
RHEL 5.10 is supported along with 5.7.

Failure to apply security patches on a production system is always a bad idea.  Verify the
patches with your test system before applying them to production, sure, but neglecting
the patches says you don't care if some criminal takes ownership.
