    Effect of OS updates on database

    975148

      We have Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition in our production server. We have the database instance hosted on a RHEL virtual machine on VMware. We have the production setup running since more than 1 ½ years. The RHEL virtual machine was not registered with Red Hat network for updates. I have registered the RHEL virtual machine for Red Hat(RHN) updates yesteray. The RHEL version now on the database machine is Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.8 Beta (Tikanga). Similar Red Hat updates were applied on our production and developmental RHEL virtual machines and the RHEL version had changed to Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.10 (Tikanga). My query is that would applying Red Hat updates have any adverse impact on the already running Oracle 11g database instance.

       

      I hope my query is clear that would applying Red Hat updates have any adverse impact on the Oracle 11g production instance, I have given detailed listing of production environment.

       

      Please revert with the reply to my query.
