(Doc ID 1990262.1)

Last updated on JULY 13, 2015

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager Base Platform - Version 12.1.0.4.0 to 12.1.0.4.0 [Release 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Enterprise Manager "Patch Recommendations" is recommending to apply patch:20188140 "enterprise manager for oms plugins 12.1.0.4.7 " even though a later patch, patch:20477849 "enterprise manager for oms plugins 12.1.0.4.9" is applied on the system.

Or 

Enterprise Manager "Patch Recommendations" is recommending to apply patch:20675595:"enterprise manager for oms plugins 12.1.0.4.10" even though a later patch (eg. patch:20844774, patch:21065889 or patch:21228562) is applied on the system.

Note that Enterprise Manager 'patch recommendations' does not necessarily recommend the latest patch, it recommends the patch which has been marked as 'recommended' in MOS.  However, if a later patch is applied than the one recommended, then the correct behaviour should be that no patch recommendations are shown.   The correct behaviour is not being seen.
