    Beauty_and_dBest

      Hi ALL,

       

      EBS R12.2.4

      11gR2

      Rhel6.5

       

      Anybody has a blog on how to apply this "dreaded" patch or.... anybody was able to apply it?

      I see this patch as pre-reqs in everything I want to do

      I really have a "phobia" on this patch.

       

       

      Please help....

       

      Thanks a lot,

      jc

          Hi,

           

          You were told previously in a different thread that you have to apply the latest database patches and then you can apply this patch.

          What kind of issues you encountered when you tried to follow this document?

           

          Applying the Latest AD and TXK Release Update Packs to Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2 (Doc ID 1617461.1)

           

          Regards,

          Bashar

            No need to worry Just backup your system go ahead and apply it.

              ***No need to worry Just backup your system go ahead and apply it.

              The patch will not allow you to apply unless you run first ETCC.

               

              If I follow that docs it will tell me to run ETCC both on apps & db tiers. Then the output are 100+ missing patches

              Is this ETCC reliable? I want to know if you have applied this latest TXK patch

                Of course it is reliable!

                You should run the latest version of this tool.

                 

                It is not something created to make your life hard. It was designed to make sure that the changes delivered by application patches work with the correct code level of technology stack.

                This way you will have the best configuration in terms of reliability, performance and overall user experience.

                  You have to really take patching as easy. Patching has evolved over the years and become streamlined. If you follow the README of patch carefully there should be no problem.

                  In my career I have applied lot many TXK and FND patches. almost 95% I never faced problems.

                  Just be patient, create your own analysis doc, have patching order decided and then apply the patches.

                  My emphasis would be on patch analysis. Once you are clear with that, patch application is easy part

                    Not sure why you need a blog for that as you just need to follow the documentation and you should be good.

                      You have to apply those patches, they are a MUST.

                       

                      Run ETCC again once all the patches applied until you get that all bug fixes are in place.

                        The reason why I got phobia with these lots of patches, is that chances are anyone of it is a candidate to mess up the instance.

                        I have experienced this when I try to upgrade 11i(9idb) to 11gR2, Note that the task is only the database part, but it entails lots of patches on the app tier side as well.

                        After applying 50% of the patches (with no error) the app will not start anymore

                         

                        Maybe I will just wait for the 12.2.5+12c package? It is now December, is it not yet available?

                         

                        Kindest regards,
