Oracle Database Patch For Exadata (APR2015 – 11.2.0.4.16)

bug

During patching our Exdata environment with the RDBMS BP16 from April 2015 we get
the following error while fixing Bug 20589991.

Bug 10339274 – ‚OPATCH AUTO‘ FAILED TO APPLY 11202 PATCH ON EXADATA RAC CLUSTER WITH 11201 RAC

This issue is observed in an environment where clusterware is on version 12.1.0.2 and database homes on 11.2.0.4.  Normally opatch auto is used to apply the Database Patch For Exadata (APR2015 – 11.2.0.4.16) but this doesn’t work.

patch

And the good news this bug is fixed by the opatch version 11.2.0.3.11 for Oracle software releases 11.2.0.x which is now available.

Latest opatch can be downloaded  https://updates.oracle.com/download/6880880.html
