    Introduction

     

    Database upgrade and patching is a routine task for Oracle DBAs. Whether updating to incorporate new functionality, or the quarterly security patches,  DBAs must plan carefully to time the upgrades to minimize downtime and protect data. Add to this the many actions that should be managed manually such as conflicts, OPatch utility version and it's clear patching requires expert timing and execution to be successful. But how about patching and upgrading if you are deploying your database on the Oracle Cloud?  This article explains how easy to perform patching on your Database as a Service (DBaaS) using a single click.

     

    Challenges of patching On-Premises

     

    Patching under any circumstances requires a lot of planning. Below are a few important steps:

     

    • What patches have been applied?
    • What patches can we apply on our database?
    • Downloading patches
    • OPatch utility version
    • One-off patch conflict detection and resolution
    • Installation of patch at Oracle Home level
    • Performing post tasks (loading modified SQL)
    • Invalid objects compilation

     

    As you can see, these steps represent a lot of planning time and work involved to locate, prepare, download the patch and update the OPatch utility version to actually accomplish the patch operation--for each identified On Premises database in the IT environment. 

     

    DBaaS – Cloud patching

     

    Now consider customer databases moved from on-premises to the Oracle cloud then….

     

    Question:How easy is it to apply the patch when the database is in the cloud?

     

    Guess: We probably host the database in the cloud, so we can apply the patch like we would on-premises.

     

    Answer: A single click of "Apply Patch" will do everything for you within 30 minutes. For the security patches it depends.

     

    How is it Possible?

     

    Oracle cloud implementations makes it possible to easily integrate all the Oracle sources such as My Oracle Support, Special DBaaS Monitoring, and easy access to the secured Oracle sources. Oracle Cloud has the flexibility to perform all the tasks at one stop, so that manual intervention is no longer required to download, analyze or apply the patches.

     

    Environment Information

     

    Service/Hostname           :                 CKPT-DBaaS
    Domain                           :                 nassyambasha
    Oracle RDBMS              :                 12.1.0.2
    Database                         :                 On Cloud
    SID                                 :                 ORC1
    OPatch version                :                 12.1.0.1.10
    Patch to apply                  :                 April 2016 PSU
    Patch 22291127: DATABASE PATCH SET UPDATE 12.1.0.2.160419
    Patch 22291127 - Database Patch Set Update 12.1.0.2.160419 (Includes CPUApr2016)

     

    Applying Patch on the Cloud Database

     

    In order to access our database service from the cloud,  navigate to Oracle Cloud Dashboard → Select Oracle Database Cloud Service →  from My services “click on URL” → from new page under database click on “ x instance(s) and then you can see below screen with the list of databases services.

     

    PatchKing_01.png

     

     

    From the home page of database service, we can see the hardware configuration, connectivity information of database. Now we can jump to the administration section of the left side panel to check the list of the available patches and to know the patch history.

     

    PatchKing_02.png

     

    So this section shows us that the database is eligible to apply the PSU update 12.1.0.2.160419 which is April 2016 PSU and we can see other information such as when this patch is released and quick access to readme file.

     

    If once we decided to go to apply the patch then the first step is to perform the “pre-check” of database over the database. Manually we have to run the command using OPatch but here single click can perform and provides the output whether the patch have any conflicts or not.

     

    PatchKing_03.png

     

    After initiating pre-check it will start checking with database homes.

     

    PatchKing_04.png

     

    It takes very little time to perform the pre-check and after that you will see below status message of the conflicts. This step can be performed as much as many times if in case.

     

    PatchKing_05.png

     

    Now we are ready to go for patching, prior to that we will gather the OPatch inventory information so that we can crosscheck after applying the patch.

    We have gathered the required information and now we will proceed to apply patch directly from the cloud dashboard for the database service.

     

    PatchKing_06.png

     

    Before proceeding with patching cloud prompts for your approval once again to ensure, because it requires downtime and hence this step should consider when the downtime is accepted. You can leave a comment so that the job id tagged with comment to view for other users.

     

    PatchKing_07.png

     

    Once the comment entered and acknowledged that means we are ensuring to apply patch forcibly then again we can click on the patch button and then the job id will be created and oracle cloud handles the complete patching.

     

    PatchKing_08.png

     

    Now the patching is in progress and we can check the status on clicking the “Last Patch applied” section and it shows when the patching is started with the job id and the current status.

     

    PatchKing_09.png

     

    We can review the database and listener status while patching in progress from the console using putty ssh terminal. If we see below the listener and also the database are already down and that means of course patching is in progress.

     

    [oracle@CKPT-DBaaS ~]$ ps -ef|grep pmon oracle    6848  1369  0 08:36 pts/1    00:00:00 grep pmon [oracle@CKPT-DBaaS ~]$ ps -ef|grep tns root        20     2  0 Jun26 ?        00:00:00 [netns] oracle    6850  1369  0 08:36 pts/1    00:00:00 grep tns [oracle@CKPT-DBaaS ~]$

     

    Whole patching took for 25 minutes of overall process; the duration depends on each patch and the number of databases.

     

    PatchKing_010.png

     

    In span of 25 minutes all the tasks are performed

     

    • Download required patches
    • Apply the patch over Oracle Home
    • Loading modified SQL
    • Recompiling invalid objects

    Further more information can be grabbed from the Patch history by clicking like below.

    After the patching is completed we can verify the status from database level using the below query

    The same information we can also gather from the database alert log and the contents are below.
