r12.1.1 to r12.1.3
Re: Questions about patching in eBS 12.1.3
thanks for your reply
but I know about 12.1.1 nto 12.1.3 steps because i have done several times these steps.
i read your link but i think it is about application side patches not DB side
my question is about Database , not Application and I 'm now in opatch patches not adpatch (needed Database patches to upgrade 12.1.3)
please read my questions again.
I belive you will go wiht path C:
In C part its mention:
A) For users upgrading to 18.104.22.168:
Attention: If you used the 12.1.1 Rapid Install 22.214.171.124 Oracle home and rolled back the DST patches as indicated in Step 2 above, apply only patches 6460304, 7111245, 8639653, 8940108, 9066130, 9554727, and 9743057 (for UNIX/Linux), 8935979 (for HP Itanium), 9346232 (for HP PA-RISC), or the latest Windows Rollup Patch (currently 32) (for Windows).
So its similar as your case.
For patches its recommended to apply all patches,if you want to skip some patches which mean you can hit error message or can have problem during your EBS run.
For apply patch its recommended to use lastest opatch version, so try to apply all patches wiht lastest version.
Dear Helios- Gunes
A) For users upgrading to 126.96.36.199:as you mentioned above For users upgrading to 188.8.131.52 but i'm in 184.108.40.206 and i don;t want to upgrade to this version !!
Attention: If you used the 12.1.1 Rapid Install 220.127.116.11 Oracle home and rolled back the DST patches as indicated in Step 2 above, apply only patches 6460304, 7111245, 8639653, 8940108, 9066130, 9554727, and 9743057 (for UNIX/Linux), 8935979 (for HP Itanium), 9346232 (for HP PA-RISC), or the latest Windows Rollup Patch (currently 32) (for Windows).it's exactly my problem, i see this text and doubt to path E
but when you read path E you see:
+Path E is applicable for E-Business Suite systems already on either 18.104.22.168 and currently running an 11g database. Systems in this category have databases already upgraded to 11g (22.214.171.124, *126.96.36.199*, 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206, or 220.127.116.11) by using the process documented in the Interoperability Notes: Oracle Applications Release 11i with Oracle Database 11g Release 1 (11.1.0) or Interoperability Notes: Oracle Applications Release 11i with Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (11.2.0).+
it confused me !!!
please help me.
The path remains the same whether you use HP, Linux, windows, AIX or solaris. But the only change you will see is some addition/reduction of steps like applying patches or setting environment variables.
They have designed these paths based on the version of application and database not based on the operating system.
If you have done upgrade many times before on linux and you have followed the path E then use the same path (Provided you completed upgrade successfully).
you can use eigther same or higher Opatch version to apply RDBMS patches.
But if you are on 18.104.22.168.0 then you have to apply 22.214.171.124.0 patch only.
So when you are downloading 7111245, first check what RDBMS version you have and then download the same version patch for 7111245.
I have done many times upgrade from EBS 12.1.1 to EBS 12.1.3 in Oracle Linux 64b
but it's my first time in HPUX Itanium 64b.
please give me an answer for my qustions:
*1) i'm now in EBS 12.1.1 and database 126.96.36.199*I'm still not sure, but i am agree with EBSDBA that I do like before, so I do Path E again.
according to document 761570.1 I should do path E or Path C ??? (before I did path E, but i'm not sure it's correct path)
I applied patch 6460304 and next was 7111245, but 7111245 exit with this error:Now I think it's true, we should always be in last OPatch version.
Applied Session failed: Patch ID is null
OPATCH failed with error code 73
after searched this I found out my OPatch version was old (OPatch version 188.8.131.52)
and I replace it with OPatch version : 184.108.40.206.10 (Latest Version)
but now when I want to apply 7111245 it says that there is patch 14739378 as prerequest.I think OPatch version in this checked first, so when it was wrong other patches didn't checked.
I would to download this patch but I can't like other !!!
*2) why before this time I didn't need to upgrade my OPatch version and i could apply 7111245 without any problem?*
*3) why before this time I didn't need to applied this patch (14739378)?*I checked patch 7111245 in linux x86-64, there isn't any pre request patch for that, but in readme of patch HPUX itanium 7111245 in pre request list there is one patch (14739378) as pre request, so it's in HPUX itanium only.
*4) I think it's because of my OPatch version (14739378 as prerequest), can i downgrade my opatch version between 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168 that patch 7111245 could be applied??*no, it's wrong completely
*5) what about If I skip this patch (7111245)??*ofcourse it seems that patch 14739378 is an important patch, so it's wrong to skip this patch, if we skip this or any patch we may encounter new errors.
