Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version to [Release 11.2 to 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


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
