Patching a Bug (one-off patch)

<- Install

Overview

The following instructions cover applying a bug patch AKA a "one-off patch". This example uses bug patch number 25385515 for a 12.2 RAC node.

The OCM response file option (-ocmrf <ocm response file>) is generally not needed in 12.2 or later. You can ignore that option if indicated in the patch notes in most cases per MOS.

Make sure to perform any conflict resolution steps indicated before applying.
