    Must run opatch as root user to apply patch #13348650 GI PSU (11.2.0.3.1)?

      Must patch #13348650 GI PSU (11.2.0.3.1) literally be executed as the root user?

      Or can opatch be executed:

      * With an individual sudo entry for opatch by the "oracle" or "grid" user?
      * By membership in /etc/sudoers (perhaps temporary for the duration of the patching)

      I see that at 11.2.0.3 the grid home gets locked for security purposes. And evidently running opatch "with root privileges" unlocks/relocks the grid home during the patching process.

      Thanks.
