    Opatch auto | Grid Infrastructure | root privileges.

    tbrinkmann
      Hi,
      does anyone can help me understand the READ ME entry from PSU Januar 2013.
      _________________
      2.3 OPatch auto for GI

      The Opatch utility has automated the patch application for the Oracle Grid Infrastructure (GI) home and the Oracle RAC database homes when run with root privileges. .....
      (README) --> Oracle Grid Infrastructure Patch Set Update 11.2.0.3.5 (Includes Database PSU 11.2.0.3.5) - 14727347
      _________________
      --> Case 1: GI Home and the Database Homes that are not shared and ACFS file system is not configured.

      As root user, execute the following command on each node of the cluster:
      _________________
      #root@host>opatch psu12013 -ocmrf OPatch/ocm/bin/ocm.rsp
      The user is root. OPatch cannot continue if the user is root.

      OPatch failed with error code 255

      ????

      Thanks *T

          That means you would be using a switch with Opatch auto and it would apply the patch on the GI and Oracle Homes automatically.

          I think the command should be

          #>opatch auto psu12013 -ocmrf OPatch/ocm/bin/ocm.rsp
