Oracle WebCenter Portal One-Off Patch Fails When One-Off Patches or Bundle Patches from Former Versions Pre-exist (Installed Earlier) (Doc ID 1933584.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 13, 2014

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version 11.1.1.7.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

An error is seen when using opatch is executed to apply an one-off patch to an 11.1.1.7.0 JDeveloper Home where another one-off patch, previously applied, already exists. This may be a WebCenter Portal or an ADF one-off patch.

Either of these errors may be seen/reported :-

ApplySession failed during prerequisite checks: Prerequisite check "CheckPatchInventoryProductMatch" failed.
The details are:
OPathc found no match for patch inventory's product(s), version(s) with that of 'product.xml' file's contents. OPatch requires a product,version match with the patch inventory if the 'product.xml' exists and is valid.
OPatch failed with error code = 74

or an unexpected patch clash reported by OPatch.

 

These problems can be seen in either of the following situations (as examples):-

Scenario 1
=======
Applying an Oracle WebCenter Portal 11.1.1.8.x one-off patch, using OPatch, in an instance of Oracle JDeveloper 11.1.1.7.0 where one of the following was installed previously:
   a) Oracle WebCenter Portal version 11.1.1.7.x one-off patch, using OPatch             or
   b) Oracle ADF one-off patch, using OPatch, on 11.1.1.7.0.

In both cases above (a & b) following is reported:

ApplySession failed during prerequisite checks: Prerequisite check "CheckPatchInventoryProductMatch" failed.
The details are:
OPathc found no match for patch inventory's product(s), version(s) with that of 'product.xml' file's contents. OPatch requires a product,version match with the patch inventory if the 'product.xml' exists and is valid.
OPatch failed with error code = 74

 

Scenario 2
=======
Applying an Oracle WebCenter Portal one-off patch on a higher bundle patch version (say: 11.1.1.8.4), using OPatch, in an instance of Oracle JDeveloper 11.1.1.7.0 where an Oracle WebCenter Portal one-off patch (say: 11.1.1.8.1) was previously installed. OPatch reports an unexpected patch clash.

Changes

At some point in the past, a patch (one-off or bundle patch) was applied to the JDeveloper Home.
