Files in OIM (Patch: 16229450, released 28-Feb-2013) have read-only permissions (r--r--r--). When the patch is deployed, the files copied to the deployment are read-only.

When a subsequent release (e.g., is deployed over, the deployment fails because the read-only files cannot be overwritten by their counterparts in the new release. Opatch log shows an error like the following for each file copy failure:

[Apr 4, 2013 3:21:52 PM] Patch 16392264:
Copy Action: Destination File
"/app/oracle/FMW/Oracle_IDM1/server/apps/spml-dsml.ear" is not writeable.

Approximately 83 files could not be copied. Eventually opatch fails with the error:

[Apr 4, 2013 3:21:56 PM] [ Error during Prerequisite for apply phase ]
Detail: OUI-67074:ApplySession failed during
prerequisite checks:
