Maintenance wizard ftp to updates.oracle.com faild with retired service message
I try to download patch in Maintenance wizard and got ftp failed error. I ran command "ftp updates.oracle.com" from DOS command and got the following message:
This service was retired as of November 06, 2009.
We use MW 2.18 to upgrade e-business suite from 11i to R12. Since MW has the functions to download and apply patch, so we want to use it. The downloading patch is in our upgrade steps. The MW utility also provides standalone function to download patches and merge patches. I don't understand is that the functions are there in MW, but we can't use it.
Looks like I need some help on the patch downloading in 2.18 as well. I ran the utiltity to make sure my MOS login was correct but the patch dowlonad is not working in the Prep for Upgrade/Create Merged patch for Rel 11i - Part 1. I've also tried downloading a patch by itself in the utilities but it won't work either. The errors reported don't tell me much but the log says to have to have the admin run the command manually. When I do I'm getting a java exception. Do you have any idea where I can start troubleshooting this?
