    Patch in R12.1 instance

    979524

      I want to apply patch in EBS R12.1 instance. We have 3 node in app tier and not using shared appl_top.

       

      How I will apply patch ?

       

      Can I apply patch in on instance and this will apply patch in other instance too .. like all_nodes=yes in R12.2?

       

      do I need to copy patches to all nodes if single command work? and need shared locations for patches?

       

      Do I need to manually apply patch in each instance?

          Hi,

           

          I want to apply patch in EBS R12.1 instance. We have 3 node in app tier and not using shared appl_top.

          How I will apply patch ?

          Answer >> Using adpatch normal options, you have to apply in all the 3 nodes

           

          Can I apply patch in on instance and this will apply patch in other instance too .. like all_nodes=yes in R12.2?

          Answer >> In 12.2 the architecture is different, you need enable passwordless ssh connectivity configured between nodes enables this feature

           

          do I need to copy patches to all nodes if single command work? and need shared locations for patches?

          Answer>> You can keep any location accessible in these nodes to place the patch

          Do I need to manually apply patch in each instance?

          Yes as because it is not a shared file system

           

          Hope this answers your question

           

          Thanks

            To apply on second node, do I need to mention in options = ?

             

             

            To apply NLS transalated patch (Arabic) in EBS.

             

            1 - Just copy the Arabic version of patch, extract , and navigate to patch dir

            2 - execute adpatch -> provide patch location -> and patch name ; xxx.drv?

             

             

            please confirm / or any specific command to apply Arabic version patch?

             

            After applying English patch, do we need to mention options=nodatabaseportion , etc .....

                Since it is not a shared file system , the command in primary and secondary will be same for patch application

                There is no specific options to be mentioned unless it is suggested in the patch readme
