I am on my 2nd upgrade. With the first upgrade I had lots of problems with this step since it refers to an MOS note that has lots of information and refers to other MOS notes and it isn't clear what steps in those notes is duplicated within the MW steps.What MOS Doc you are referring to?
The first time I did some things in the wrong order since there was no clear direction between the MW steps and all of the notes.You can find the list of docs for pre-upgrade patches in (What Do You Need To Know For A Successful Upgrade Of Oracle Payables? [VIDEO] [ID 1471844.1]).
Is there anything that can help clarify how to correctly proceed through this task and the next task, Perform the Upgrade, which are so critical?

Yep, I am following that note and trying to understand how to integrate all of that info with the MW instructions for these tasks/steps:
Task: Apply Preinstall Patches
1-Check for critical pre-upgrade patches for Financials
Task: Perform the Upgrade
9-Apply DBA CUP and related patches (Required)
9.1-Apply patch 7303029 (Required)
10-Run the American English upgrade patch driver (Required)
11-Run the NLS upgrade patch driver (Conditionally Required)
It often isn't clear whether the MW instructions have incorporated all of the instructions in the note or not.
The problem is with the way the MW gives instructions since it first refers to MOS note 954704.1 which then refers to MOS note 1448102.1 (1127593.1). It says to follow the readme for these notes (which are critical).Note: 1127593.1 no longer exists and it was replaced by (Oracle E-Business Suite Pre-install Patches Report [Video] [ID 1448102.1])
But the MW also has embedded instructions for each of the tasks and steps and their associated Setup, Execute, Validate components.
It isn't clear where or if the MOS note "readme" instructions overlap with the embedded MW instructions.
I suppose that I'll have to lay out the MOS note instructions and compare them to the embedded MW instructions and see where/if there is any overlap.
This is a rather critical component of the upgrade and I just wish it was clearer on how to proceed from within the MW.
1) Apply pre-install patchesPatch 7303029 need to be applied before the upgrade -- Oracle Applications Release Notes, Release 12.1.1 [ID 798258.1]
----- Task: Apply Preinstall Patches
-------- Step 1-Check for critical pre-upgrade patches for Financials (Required)
I think that I understand this section except that I don't know whether patch 7303029 should be applied in this step or not.
Neither of these steps actually applies patch 7303029 in pre-install mode but I am under the impression that this needed to be done at some point.Please see the doc referenced above.
So, please provide the exact steps needed to get this done correctly.
