We have 2 servers which run ArcSDE 10 by ESRI which we are forced to keep at Oracle 220.127.116.11 because of the software manufacturer's requirements . Since Oracle does not release patches for 18.104.22.168 anymore, I need to know whether I can apply the security patch for a different version to these databases. Note I do not want to upgrade, just apply the bug fix. For example, on my other servers, which run 22.214.171.124- I am applying patch 17163634. Could I use this one, or perhaps an earlier one, say for 126.96.36.199? Or am I just out of luck until ESRI allows us to upgrade Oracle? FWIW- we're on Windows Server 2008 64-bit.
Thanks in advance.
From what I can tell Srini from my research you are correct that I can't apply a patch to a different version of the database than what it is for. However I was wondering if anyone had any different experience, since I am stuck with 188.8.131.52 for these two servers and Oracle does not release patches for that version.
Does anyone else use 184.108.40.206?
