Last updated on MARCH 23, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 11.2.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On an 11gR2 RAC installation, if there is no existing database associated to the RDBMS home, when applying a patch using "opatch auto" command, OPatch will patch the Grid Infrastructure home but not the RDBMS home.

But, one or more database exists associated to the RDBMS home, then OPatch will patch both the Grid Infrastructure home and the RDBMS Home
