Online Patch Apply

Hello,

Today I want to share my experience about online patching.

Download needed patch : https://support.oracle.com
For tutorial I got p16928674_112030_Generic.zip file.


1. Go to $ORACLE_HOME/Opatch dir and call opatch with parameters

[oracle@dbserver OPatch]$ pwd  
 /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1/OPatch  
 [oracle@dbserver OPatch]$ ./opatch lsinventory  
 Invoking OPatch 11.2.0.1.7

   from      : /etc/oraInst.loc  
 OPatch version  : 11.2.0.1.7

 [oracle@dbserver OPatch]$ ./opatch version  
 Invoking OPatch 11.2.0.1.7

2. Take backup of OPatch dir but it will be good to take entire ORACLE_HOME`s backup.
[tar, mv, etc]

3. export path
[oracle@dbserver db_1]$ export PATH=$PATH:$ORACLE_HOME/OPatch

4. unzip patch file
[oracle@dbserver Desktop]$ unzip p16928674_112030_Generic.zip


If you want you can check applicable using CheckApplicable parameter.

[oracle@dbserver OPatch]$ ./opatch prereq CheckApplicable -ph /home/oracle/Desktop/16928674

To check result you can check log file :
[oracle@dbserver Desktop]$ more /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1/cfgtoollogs/opatch/opatch2014-10-08_14-22-10PM.log

If everythins are OK, then execute postinstallion script
