Should We Use The Smart Update (BSU) cache_dir For Downloaded Patches Or Is Another Directory OK?

Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 9.2 to
Information in this document applies to any platform.


We are applying a patch using Smart Update (BSU). The readme says to unzip and download to cache dir or any local dir:

However, after applying the patch, we see that it is not getting listed in -view status unless and until the patch ID jar and patch_catalog_xxx.xml files are copied to the cache_dir directory. So is it required to copy the patch files to cache_dir?
