EM 13c: Support for Monthly Recommended Patches (MRPs) of Database in Fleet Maintenance (Doc ID 2907035.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 18, 2022

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager for Oracle Database - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Fleet Maintenance is a centralized mechanism for Patching/Upgrading of Oracle Homes and maintain consistency. This document lists all the options for Monthly Recommended Patches (MRPs) of database for successful Fleet Maintenance Activity.


Starting with Oracle Database 19c RU19.17 (mid-October 2022), MRPs will be delivered for each RU in the 6 months following each RU's release. These will include the fixes documented in "Oracle Database Important Recommended Patches" (<Note 555.1>), RU regression fixes plus the prior MRPs for the RU.

While RUs will continue to be available on all supported platforms, MRPs will only be offered on Linux X86-64 platforms. Customers can continue to request one-off patches on all supported platforms. If a particular month does not have new recommended fixes for an RU, then no MRP will be released, and an annotation will be added in the relevant MOS notes to avoid confusion. Merge patches will be provided if there are conflicts between one-off patches and the latest MRP for an RU.
