I haven't got a chance to do any webtier patching myself but from [url http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E23943_01/doc.1111/e16793/toc.htm]documentation it seems that you need to apply patch [url https://updates.oracle.com/ARULink/PatchDetails/process_form?patch_num=13516876]13516876 to your existing Middleware home rather than install a new one. There should be no additional steps afterwards :
If you are installing Oracle Identity Management, Oracle Business Intelligence, or Oracle Web Tier, then you must perform a software only install and select the existing Middleware home and Oracle home you want to patch. There is no need to configure or re-configure your existing software.
Thanks for your response Erik.
I downloaded the patch (p13516876_111160_Linux-x86-64.zip) you noted and the contents and size of the patch is exactly the same as the full install (ofm_webtier_linux_184.108.40.206.0_64_disk1_1of1.zip) that I downloaded.
So I think the (ofm_webtier_linux_220.127.116.11.0_64_disk1_1of1.zip) can be used as a completely new install of webtier 18.104.22.168.0 or upgrading existing software.
Ah yes, webtier patch set will indeed allow you to do a new install.
According to the documentation, it should automatically update your instance configuration files. You could check your opmnctl program (MW_HOME/INSTANCE_HOME/bin/opmnctl) to see what it says :
taken from a Classic Products install
# Define the command actions and usage descriptions # $OracleInstance = '/refresh/app/oracle/product/Middleware_ClassicProducts/asinst_1'; $OracleHome = '/refresh/app/oracle/product/Middleware_ClassicProducts/as_1';
Does it point to the new 22.214.171.124 WT ORACLE_HOME or does it point to the old 11.1.1.x one?
