DO NOT RENAME the existing OPatch directory in the OMS_HOME or the AGENT_HOME. Doing so will lead to failure in running omspatcher commands.

It is important that the latest Release Update is applied on the OMS as soon as the OPatch is upgraded on the OMS HOME.

DO NOT UPGRADE the OPatch on the OEM 13.4 agents.

Upgrading OPatch on the 13.5 agents is supported, but please ensure that you have a backup of the AGENT_HOME taken before you do the OPatch upgrade.
