CPU Applicability for ASM installation Type (Table 1 in CPU Patch readme ) And What it Means (Doc ID 1356983.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 20, 2011

Applies to:

Oracle Server - Enterprise Edition - Version: 10.2.0.4 and later   [Release: 10.2 and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal


Note: This information is not only pertaining this version of the CPU, but is meant to clarify some of its meaning about the information from Table 1 and pertaining ASM and security CPUs.

 For the ASM installation type and Latest CPU with Security Fixes, Table 1 (Installation Types and CPU Applicability) seems to imply that for ASM in a non-TCPS environment the patch to install is CPUJul2009?

Choose appropriate platform and click "View README' from the following link:  https://updates.oracle.com/download/12419249.html

See attachment for screen shot

The README states that CPUs are cumulative, which means fixes from previous Oracle security alerts and critical patch updates are included. So why not just installing the CPUJul2011 instead?
