We are currently running in production Oracle DBMS 18.104.22.168 on RHEL5.6. We have been looking at the CPUs (Critical Patch Update) for 22.214.171.124... but all we can find are CPUs for 126.96.36.199 or 3. This begs a few questions... 1) are there CPUs for 188.8.131.52? 2) if not, then how do we upgrade from 184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11 or 3?
What I have found thus far indicates that the 18.104.22.168 and 3 are not patches but require a complete install with separate Oracle Homes, etc... This is not what we want.Yes, starting with 22.214.171.124, patches are not patches but complete installs that need to be installed in separate/new ORACLE_HOMEs. The upgrade process is documented in the 11gR2 upgrade guide
Has anyone upgraded to 126.96.36.199 from 188.8.131.52? If so, difficulty? Requirements? Steps? Docs? Does it really require a complete install and new Oracle home?
