One of our client has all modules implemented with a db size of 7TB in RAC. Now we are facing
so many functional issues, for which oracle support is recommedning to apply small patches as
bug fix, now considering the availability and the size of the database, its not feasible to
clone it every time ?
Any recommendations ?
If you cannot afford cloning to testing the patch then you could run adpatch with "apply=no" option.
