How to apply cpu (wls) patches on 11.2.2?

Hello Experts

I would like to know the process to apply the web logic patches on EPM 11.2.2.

    The process hasn't changed from the previous EPM release version.

    After you download the patch from Oracle, extract the patch files and copy them to cache_dir directory (MIDDLEWARE_HOME\utils\bsu\cache_dir). You may need to create the cache_dir directory in case it doesn't exist.

    Open command prompt and navigate to MIDDLEWARE_HOME\utils\bsu and run below command:

    bsu.cmd -install -patch_download_dir=MIDDLEWARE_HOME\utils\bsu\cache_dir -patchlist=patch_ID -prod_dir=MIDDLEWARE_HOME\wlserver_10.3

    patch_ID is the patch number that you would find in the extracted file which is of 4 letters including numbers as well.

    Hope this helps...!!!

    Hi Anukr,

    For EPM 11.2.2 the bsu folder is no more I believe.

    Oh yeah..!!! I misread the question. My bad.

    So, those things are gone and you need to use the opatch utility now to apply the weblogic patches. Just pass the -oh parameters you pass to the Opatch utility like for other EPM patches and there you go.

    /Oracle/Middleware is the combination of WebLogic and ADF/JDeveloper for Oracle 12c while OHS and EPM still get their own OPatch folders as before.
