Operation guarantee for DB2 v11.1 Federation Server

System DB2 v11.1 Federation Server
Request: Provide operation guarantee for Oracle NET client 12.2.0.1  for Data Source Oracle Database 11gR2(11.2.0.3)

URL: https://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27049211
---------------------
12 One of the following Oracle clients is needed:
Oracle NET client 10.0 or 10.1
Oracle NET client 10.2.0.1 with patch 3807408
Oracle NET client 10.1.0.3 with patch 3807408
Oracle NET client 11.1.0.6.0
For 12cR2, Oracle NET client 11.2.0.4.0 or later
----------------------

Our application team will develop some application using DB2 v11.1 Federation Server.
These applications will work at Oracle NET client 12.2.0.1 for Data Source Oracle Database 11gR2(11.2.0.3)

Oracle NET of the old version is supported to DB2 v11.1 at present. I'd like to install Oracle NET in AIX7.2 DB2 v11.1, but Oracle NET with the operation guarantee doesn't exist.
