Important Notes (All Releases):

  • For Multiple OMS Systems: Follow the same steps to apply the BIP patch on each and every OMS system.

  • DO NOT follow the README provided with the BI Suite Bundle Patch since it does not consider an EM-Integrated BIP Installation.

  • ONLY APPLY the Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher (BIP) patch extracted from the main BI Suite Bundle Patch to the EM-Integrated BI Publisher. DO NOT apply any other components of the BI Suite Bundle Patch to your EM-Integrated BI Publisher installation. (only applies to EM 13.3 and below. For EM 13.4, apply the entire OBI Bundle Patch)

  • Ensure that you have the latest version of OPatch and OMSPatcher for your release of Enterprise Manager.  If you are not sure about the OPatch and the OMSPatcher version you have, you should download the latest versions. To download, follow the instructions outlined in the My Oracle Support <Note 224346.1> and <Note 2462175.1> respectively.
