Purpose

It may be necessary to apply a patch prior to the execution of the root script to ensure successful root script execution (e.g. <note 1212703.1> ). This note describe the procedure to apply a Grid Infrastructure patch(including GI PSU patch) before GI is configured (in other word, before root.sh or rootupgrade.sh is executed).

In upgrade case, the note applies when a patch is being applied to the new GI home, it does not apply when applying to the existing (current) clusterware home.

Prior to executing the root script, applying a GI patch with the patch readme may result in failure as these instruction are written for a "configured" GI Home.

"opatch auto" must NOT be used as the new GI home hasn't been configured yet.
