Applying the WLS Stack Patch Bundle with '-report' does not Apply Patches (Doc ID 2779706.1)

Last updated on JUNE 03, 2024

Applies to:

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


No patches are applied after running OPatch command to apply the WLS Stack Patch Bundle(SPB) <Patch 32755804>.
The command used is 'opatch napply -report -oh <ORACLE_HOME> -phBaseFile linux64_patchlist.txt -invPtrLoc <INVENTORY_PTR>'

This comes from the patch readme,

UNIX Platform Steps
1. This step is optional to perform a report of what would happen when applying the SPB.

Run the following commands with the -report flag to produce a log to review:

cd WLS_SPB_12.2.1.3.<VERSION>/binary_patches

<ORACLE_HOME>/OPatch/opatch napply -report -oh <ORACLE_HOME> -phBaseFile <patch_list_file>

When composing the command line, make sure the -phBaseFile value corresponds to your specific Unix operating platform:

linux64_patchlist.txt | solaris64_patchlist.txt | solaris_space64_patchlist.txt | aix64_patchlist.txt | hpuxia64_patchlist.txt | linux_zser_patchlist.txt | generic_patchlist.txt

Use generic_patchlist.txt to apply generic patches only in case their install platform is different from the list detailed in the Section 2 of this document.

Here is an example of the command on the Linux platform:

<ORACLE_HOME>/OPatch/opatch napply -report -oh <ORACLE_HOME> -phBaseFile linux64_patchlist.txt

(Note the above patch list files are bundled into the SPB and you do not need to provide a path to the file)

Once the opatch napply -report command is executed, review the output of the command and the logs it produces to be aware of any possible issues.
No changes have been made to your Oracle home even though the command output may say that patches were successfully applied.
