19c Combo OJVM-DB-RU

TOC

Overview

The following covers applying the OJVM-DB Release Update (RU) combo patch to a standard database. Patch 35370174 is used in these examples (AKA July 2023).

Combo Patch Fun Facts!

For both the Database RU and the OJVM RU

  • You must shutdown all databases and listener before running opatch apply.
  • datapatch -verbose is run after opatch apply.
  • datapatch must be run for each separate database being patched.
    Set the ORACLE_SID for each before running.
  • The above must be run logged in as the oracle user.
  • An RU can change the minor version.
    For example: 19.nn to 19.20.

Prerequisites

  • If using VMware or VirtualBox, take a snapshot before beginning.
  • Ensure you have the latest OPatch.
  • Confirm the Oracle inventory is OK.
    Example: $ORACLE_HOME/OPatch/opatch lsinventory -detail -oh $ORACLE_HOME
  • Download Combo patch (Doc ID 2118136.2):
    1. What would you like to download? OJVM Update/PSU/Bundle Patches
    2. Please select the version: 19.0.0.0
    3. Download: OJVM + DB Update (35370174) 🠊 Select OS (Linux x86-64)
    4. As oracle user copy patch .zip file to your patches dir.
  • Run My Oracle Support's Conflict Checker to detect and resolve any conflicts.
  • Unzip the downloaded combo patch zip file.

Example

 su - oracle
 mkdir /u05/patches/19/2023-Jul
 DL to /u05/patches/19/2023-Jul
 cd /u05/patches/19/2023-Jul
 cp p35370174_190000_Linux-x86-64.zip /u01/orasw/patches/
 cd /u01/orasw/patches
 unzip p35370174_190000_Linux-x86-64.zip
A sub directory with the matching patch number (35370174) will be created.
  • List included major patch sets.

cd /u01/orasw/patches/35370174
ls -l
35320081 (DB RU)
35354406 (OJVM RU)

There is a README.html in each top-level sub dir that identifies type (DB or OJVM).
<title>Oracle Database Patch 35320081 - Database Release Update 19.nnn</title>
<title>Oracle Database Patch 35354406 - Oracle JavaVM Component Release Update 19.nnn</title>

One of the biggest reasons patches fail is lack of disk space in your ORACLE_HOME. Ensure you have 25gb or more free.

    Do you want to proceed? [y|n]: y

    Upon completion the status will be displayed on screen.
    Example: OPatch succeeded.

Post Combo Patch Actions

Ensure Oracle Inventory for the oracle home shows applied patches.

OJVM Status Check

Rollback Patch

Patch Deinstallation Instructions for a Non-RAC, Non-CDB Environment.

Rollback Fun Facts!

  • Do the OJVM then Database Update.
  • opatch rollback also automactically rolls back the SQL changes (AKA datapatch).

Procedure

 0. Note current patch versions.
    $ORACLE_HOME/OPatch/opatch lspatches 

 1. Shut down all instances and listeners associated with the Oracle home. 

     If Linux 8 run: export CV_ASSUME_DISTID=OEL8.1

     -- Stop Database(s) and Listener
     oracle> export ORACLE_SID=MyOraSid
     oracle> sqlplus / as sysdba
     SQLPLUS> shutdown immediate
     SQLPLUS> exit

     oracle> lsnrctl stop

     Env Prep cmds on one line:
     export PATH=$PATH:/usr/ccs/bin;export PATH=$PATH:$ORACLE_HOME/OPatch;cd $ORACLE_HOME/OPatch

 2. Run the OPatch utility specifying the rollback argument as follows:
    opatch rollback -id 35354406 (OJVM)
    opatch rollback -id 35320081 (Database Update)

 3. QC
    $ORACLE_HOME/OPatch/opatch lspatches

 4. After the rollback is complete, you will need to restart the 
    database for the changes to take effect.

    -- Start Database(s) and Listener
    oracle> lsnrctl start

    oracle> export ORACLE_SID=MyOraSid
    oracle> sqlplus / as sysdba
    SQLPLUS> startup
    SQLPLUS> exit
