While going through this doc: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B16240_01/doc/em.102/e15294/recovery.htm I encountered a doubt and I wanted to get it cleared: Under the heading Restoring ORACLE_HOME they have mentioned we can remove any changes made to the inventory. Does this mean, the patch applied will be rolled back?
why so many unresolved questions?

Thanks Fran and Osama. I am somewhat getting clearer about these. So when we need to upgrade from 184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11, we don't use opatch, but we infact install the 18.104.22.168 and then using the dbca, we upgrade the database. Then what is it with patchset?
