    Upgrade issue during merging patches

    Walashkar
      Dear All,

      We are in the process of upgrading our applications from 11i to 12.1 . we are done with all the post upgrade steps.

      Oracle E-Business Suite Pre-install Patches Report [Video] [ID 1448102.1]


      I applied all this patches in a preinstall mode. As per the upgrade guide, I need to apply the patches in preinstall mode which I did it and it is working fine.

      The next step is to merge the pre install patches with the american platch global driver u6678700.drv. While doing this , we noticed that the command

      admrgpch -d . -preinstall -master u6678700.drv

      is hanging. So as per the support note, Admrgpch -d . -preinstall -master U6678700.drv Is Hanging (1496767.1) . I merged the patches using the below command and it worked fine

      admrgpch -s /s06/soft/pre_upgrade_patch/patch/pre_upgrade_merge/AD_12.1.1/source -d /s06/soft/pre_upgrade_patch/patch/pre_upgrade_merge/AD_12.1.1/dest -admode -merge_name mergeadcup

      I've shared the output below

      Please check the log file at ./admrgpch.log
      Now, After doing this too, we noticed that the preinstall merge command is hanging.

      admrgpch -d . -preinstall -master u6678700.drv

          So as per the support note, Admrgpch -d . -preinstall -master U6678700.drv Is Hanging (1496767.1) . I merged the patches using the below command and it worked fine
          What is the version of the file mentioned in the doc? Do you have the patches mentioned in the doc applied?

          Thanks,
          Hussein

            Thanks Hussein.

            As per the document, 1496767.1)

            I have the version 120.38.12010000.3. which is less than 120.38.12010000.7. So, I did the below

            1. Merge this patch (9179588:R12.AD.B) with 9477107:R12.AD.B and R12.AD.B.1
            (patch 7461070).
            Note: This merge should be a full merge using -admode.
            Do not use -preinstall or - driveronly mode

            and it worked fine, the main issue in merging preinstall patches..

              You need to be on 120.38.12010000.7 or higher before you issue "admrgpch -d . -preinstall -master u6678700.drv" command.
