Thanks Hussein for your reply.
Do you know about EBS_R12.1_Preinstall_2012_Sep_20.zip, I think that this is most latest documentation/list of patches regarding CUP patches, just released on Sep20, 2012 ?
Is it necessary to following the instruction for merging as per the documentation or if I merged all the pre-install patches in one bundle as we merged other patches and apply the patches when I am done applying all the merger patches in pre-install mode and then apply the 6678700 patch.Merge all pre-install patches together in one patch and apply them then apply the main upgrade patch driver (u6678700.drv).
Please reply all my question.
I unzipped all the patches mentioned in the "EBS_R12.1_Preinstall_2012_Sep_20.zip". merged all the patches and applied the patches in preinstall mode. Have I done correct ?. Now I can proceed with the patch 6678700 using adptcah options=nocopyportion,nogenerateportion.Correct.
Can I ignore instructions in the document that merge the patch drivers in the preinstall directory with the u6678700.drv. and apply the newly merged driver with adpatch options=nocopyportion,nogenerateportionYes.
That does not seem to me logical. preinstall patches will applied with preinstall=y but 667870 can be applied with the above option and other thing is that how come patch will be successful if other files of the patch does not exist in the same directory.That's why you need to apply pre-install patches first (in one merged patch) then apply the upgrade driver.
