I need to patch an Oracle 11gR2 with
I know that the patch is a full install.

On my install process I noticed that the oracle home directory must be different :

Existing path for

- New path planned for

- The path on the oracle user .bash_profile must pointing on the new path
- All the oracle services /listener must be stoped

- A database backup must be done with RMAN

- I know that I must start the patch install : ./runInstaller
--- > It will install the new oracle core on the new home directory

- I suppose that I don't need to install a new database during the install process ! ?

and after what is the process to patch/upgrade the DATABASE itself ???? :-| (use dbua (upgrade assistant) to upgrade the db or I don't know why ?)

Thanks for your answers
