Re: Questions about patching in eBS 12.1.3
A) For users upgrading to 22.214.171.124:as you mentioned above For users upgrading to 126.96.36.199 but i'm in 188.8.131.52 and i don;t want to upgrade to this version !!
Attention: If you used the 12.1.1 Rapid Install 184.108.40.206 Oracle home and rolled back the DST patches as indicated in Step 2 above, apply only patches 6460304, 7111245, 8639653, 8940108, 9066130, 9554727, and 9743057 (for UNIX/Linux), 8935979 (for HP Itanium), 9346232 (for HP PA-RISC), or the latest Windows Rollup Patch (currently 32) (for Windows).it's exactly my problem, i see this text and doubt to path E
I have done many times upgrade from EBS 12.1.1 to EBS 12.1.3 in Oracle Linux 64b
but it's my first time in HPUX Itanium 64b.
please give me an answer for my qustions:
*1) i'm now in EBS 12.1.1 and database 220.127.116.11*I'm still not sure, but i am agree with EBSDBA that I do like before, so I do Path E again.
according to document 761570.1 I should do path E or Path C ??? (before I did path E, but i'm not sure it's correct path)
I applied patch 6460304 and next was 7111245, but 7111245 exit with this error:Now I think it's true, we should always be in last OPatch version.
Applied Session failed: Patch ID is null
OPATCH failed with error code 73
after searched this I found out my OPatch version was old (OPatch version 18.104.22.168)
and I replace it with OPatch version : 22.214.171.124.10 (Latest Version)
but now when I want to apply 7111245 it says that there is patch 14739378 as prerequest.I think OPatch version in this checked first, so when it was wrong other patches didn't checked.
I would to download this patch but I can't like other !!!
*2) why before this time I didn't need to upgrade my OPatch version and i could apply 7111245 without any problem?*
*3) why before this time I didn't need to applied this patch (14739378)?*I checked patch 7111245 in linux x86-64, there isn't any pre request patch for that, but in readme of patch HPUX itanium 7111245 in pre request list there is one patch (14739378) as pre request, so it's in HPUX itanium only.
*4) I think it's because of my OPatch version (14739378 as prerequest), can i downgrade my opatch version between 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 that patch 7111245 could be applied??*no, it's wrong completely
*5) what about If I skip this patch (7111245)??*ofcourse it seems that patch 14739378 is an important patch, so it's wrong to skip this patch, if we skip this or any patch we may encounter new errors.
