    Oracle E-Business Suite Pre-install Patches on top of R12.1.1

    User426388
      We are trying to identify the patches that are required to be applied on top of R12.1.1 before invoking the u6678700.drv. We came across the note, Oracle E-Business Suite Pre-install Patches Report [Video] [ID 1448102.1]. We installed the report and as per the note and the report, we have "Upgrade Script failure - EBS" 98 patches and "Performance issue - EBS" 33 patches. We would like to know if its mandatory to apply all these 98+33 patches and if so is there any better way to get a merged patch?

      Do we need to apply patches for products under a particular family suit if they are not licensed? i.e say under Finacials, Products ZX, XLE are not licensed, so Can I skip the preinstall patches for these products?

      Thanks

          They highly recommended to avoid issues and errors during the upgrade, so I would say they are mandatory.

          You can merge all those patches as long as you need to use certain option to apply them (i.e. preinstall). If any of those patches need to be applied normally using adpatch (with no options), then merge those patches in a different patch.

          For unlicensed products, you do not need to apply the patches.

          Thanks,

            Thanks Hussein for the confirmation. One more question, I also found another note      R12.1: Oracle Financials Pre-Upgrade Patch - Supplemental List for EBS CUP [ID 1127593.1], specific to CUP patches for Financials as per this note, some of the patches listed under Pre-install Patches Report are superseded and the report contains the superseded as well as the original patch, could you please confirm if I can skip the original patch safely?

            Example is patch for AP 11653739

            As per note:1127593.1, patch AP 11653739:R12.AP.B superseded by 12990345:R12.AP.B

            but the Pre-install Patches Report lists both 11653739 & 12990345

            Thanks

              I would suggest you apply both. Patches applied using preinstall option do not take long time to be applied, and it is just copying files (without updating the database or generating files).

              Thanks,

                Thanks Alot Hussein, is there any better way to download multiple patches in a single operation?

                Thanks

                    Hi Hussein,

                    Thanks alot for your update. One more clarification pls

                    As per the note, Oracle Applications Release Notes, Release 12.1.1 [ID 798258.1], I am planning to merge CUP patch 7303029 with other Pre-install Patches and apply the merged driver with preinstall=Y option

                    my question is after the above step do I still need to do this step? as its not clear

                    Merge the patch drivers in $APPL_TOP/admin/$TWO_TASK/preinstall directory
                    with the 12.1.1 upgrade driver $AU_TOP/patch/115/driver/u6678700.drv

                    Merging patch drivers in $APPL_TOP/admin/$TWO_TASK/preinstall with
                    $AU_TOP/patch/115/driver/u6678700.drv:


                    - change directory to $AU_TOP/patch/115/driver
                    (example: cd $AU_TOP/patch/115/driver)

                    - admrgpch -d . -preinstall -master u6678700.drv

                    Note: Default merged driver by name u_merged.drv would be created in the
                    destination directory specified.


                    Apply the newly merged 12.1.1 upgrade driver (for example -
                    $AU_TOP/patch/115/driver/u_merged.drv) with adpatch
                    options=nocopyportion,nogenerateportion

                    Thanks

                      No, as you need to apply those merged patches using preinstall option then apply u6678700.drv patch driver using nocopyportion,nogenerateportion option, so you should not merge those patches again.

                      Thanks,

                        Hi Hussein,

                        I was reviewing the readme for the pre-install patches and I came across two issues,

                        1) Some patches in the pre-install report are superseded, so is it fine if I go ahead and apply the superseded patch?

                        2) for the patches 13545598 13799611 13931180, the readme doesn't say anything about applying these patches in preinstall mode but these patches are included in the preinstall report.

                        Could you pls clarify?

                        Thanks
                        Murali

                          Yes.

                          According to those patches README files, you need to apply them normally.

                          Thanks,

                            Thanks Hussein,

                            Regarding the second question

                            According to those patches README files, you need to apply them normally, if so why were they included in the pre-install patches report? and are these patches supposed to be applied after R12.1.1 upgrade completed?

                            Thanks

                              Those patches are included in 12.1.3 RUP or in R12.PRC_PF.B.delta.3 Patch 9249354. So, you need to apply them after the upgrade (if you are upgrading to 12.1.1/12.1.2). If you are upgrading to 12.1.3 then you should be those patches already applied.

                              12.1.3: Procurement Family Update - Current Rollup Patch : 14254641:R12.PRC_PF.B [ID 1468883.1]

                                Since I am upgrading to R12.1.3 I can skip these three patches I believe, pls correct me if I am wrong.

                                Thanks

                                  Correct. If you search those patches individually in MOS website, you will find that they are included in 12.1.3 RUP

                                  Thanks,

                                    Hai Hussein,

                                    I can see in the patch reports, most of the patches are applicable for release 12.1 . For example the patch

                                    11653739
                                    2011-05-25
                                    RCA : RCA FOR DUPLICATE PARTY SITES AFTER UPGRADE

                                    is for release R`12 Ap.B and r12AP.A. Do I have to still download it and apply it before runing the upgrade driver ?
