I was upgrading my EBS Database 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52 for which I followed document 1265232.1. The Installation was successful but when I'm trying to apply post installation patches I'm facing different kind of errors like patch have no fixes for current OH, archive not applied - library file error or patches confliction.
Am I facing these errors due to chosing older patchset version 184.108.40.206?
If so how do I delete this home and install new one?
Yes you can - assuming you follow documented uninstall steps. You can install 220.127.116.11 in a separate, new ORACLE_HOME (aka out of place upgrade) - see MOS Doc 1189783.1
Please tell me can I delete new Oracle 18.104.22.168 Home safely? and afterwards install 22.214.171.124.
If you have already upgraded the instance, then deleting 126.96.36.199 only is not sufficient, you will need to restore your 188.8.131.52 database and start the upgrade again from the beginning (with 184.108.40.206).
As mentioned in (Doc ID 1058763.1) .. This note is the master document describing the use of Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 (12.0.x and 12.1.x) with Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (11.2.0.x), where x denotes the patch set level (currently 3).
Thank you Hussein Sir for your response. I'm getting those error after installation (applying additional patches as recommended in doc 1265232.1).
The main error was like:
Archive not applied /oracle/orasoft/8528171/files/lib/libserver10.a/kqlm.o to /oracle/product/10.2.0/lib/libserver10.a... ''
According to Mr. Kamar Agavey library files cause this error: http://kamranagayev.com/2011/07/22/fixing-archive-not-applied-error-during-patch-apply/
I tried applying more than 1 patch including 1 bundled patch but was getting same error. 2nd Error was like patch has no maintenance for this OH. Even though the patches have been recommended for OH 220.127.116.11 in document 1265232.1.
There are different reasons for this error -- Please see the docs below.
OUI-67124 Archive Not Applied When Running Opatch From Directory That Contains Spaces (Doc ID 1365029.1)
ERROR : "OUI-67010:Archive not applied .. 'ArchiveAction::apply() failed "ar: No such file or directory" (Doc ID 418207.1)
Error When Applying a Patch: java.lang.RuntimeException: ArchiveAction::apply() failed: "ar: read error (Doc ID 565601.1)
Opatch Fails With Error "No such file or directory" (Doc ID 1462303.1)
java.lang.RuntimeException: ArchiveAction::apply() failed: "ar: 0707-124 The object file xxx is corrupted" (Doc ID 463135.1)
As practice I'll try those documents on 18.104.22.168 home before deleting it
Please let me know:
Do I've to execute OUI to uninstall this OH or I jut can remove the OH folder?
I don't know how to check code levels of TXK, ATG etc and R12.D.1.Delta type patch level , please refer me any document so that I can understand them better.
Thanks & regards
