One-off Patch Conflict Detection and Resolution
The following covers using Oracle's Conflict Checker. This tool allows you check a patch you want to apply for any issues with the patches already installed.
Each time you run opatch lsinventory it creates an output file here:
Create Inventory Files
-- Database Product su - oracle $ORACLE_HOME/OPatch/opatch lsinventory -- For RAC and Oracle Restart Do This Also su - grid $ORACLE_HOME/OPatch/opatch lsinventory
Run Conflict Checker
Run My Oracle Support's Conflict Checker tool to detect and resolve any conflicts.
Platform: Linux x86-64 Oracle Home Inventory: Select Select Then your file: lsinventoryMonth_Time.txt Select File is uploaded... Select Patch Name or Number: Patch number you want to apply. Ex: 28689148 Select Patch Search Results Select\Hi-lite Platform: Linux x86-64 Select Select Process runs... Address any issues detected, i.e. download any patch files listed if not already done so.
If you have RAC or Oracle Restart do this again with lsinventory output file created from the GRID_HOME.
