      Hi ALL,


      EBS R12.1.1




      Is possible to merge all these 12.1.3 patches?

      EBS Upgrade 12.1.1 to 12.1.3


      Or at least  merge the last 3 patches?


      Kind regards,

          Hi ALL,


          I am applying the first patch 9239089

          But i got error below:


          collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

          make: *** [/u02/apptest4/TEST4/apps/apps_st/appl/ad/12.0.0/bin/adwrknew] Error 1

          See error messages above (also recorded in log file) for possible

          reasons for the failure.  Also, please check that the Unix userid

          running adrelink has read, write, and execute permissions

          on the directory /u02/apptest4/TEST4/apps/apps_st/appl/ad/12.0.0/bin,

          and that there is sufficient space remaining on the disk partition

          containing your Oracle Applications installation.

          How to fix relinking error?

          Can I ignore it as Yes? and proceed to other patches?



          Please help...

            Hi jc,


            As your applmgr user for the TEST instance, try to touch a file in /u02/apptest4/TEST4/apps/apps_st/appl/ad/12.0.0/bin.  It is saying it cannot write files there.  Check ownership of $APPL_TOP and $AD_TOP/bin.


            You cannot ignore this.

              Hi jc,


              To answer your question about merging, you must not merge an AD minipack or AD.B.Delta patch with any other patch.  You could possibly merge the last 3 but I have never done it that way.  These last 3 patches are pretty small and only take a few minutes to apply.

                Thanks Michael,


                But I am teaching merge patch to students, I need a working good example


                But now even my sample test apply single patch have lots of errors

                I do not know what is happening to this server.

                I am embarrassed to my students, I can not resolve the error.



                Kind regards,

                  You are looking at the wrong way!


                  First, if you want to upgrade 12.1.1 to 12.1.3, follow the 12.1.3 README and apply all prerequisities 1st.


                  Remember you cannot merge ATG and Non-ATG patches such as AD and AP together.




                  Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.3 Readme (Doc ID 1080973.1)


                  Apply all the prequisites like Product Patches together using admrgpch which will not be a problem.


                  Let me know if you have any doubts.
