 Symptoms
 Solutions
 I. After installing online patches, newly created instances or databases do not have online patches enabled; therefore it needs to be enabled manually.
 Scenario 1 - create a new database (single-instance or RAC)
 Scenario 2 - adding a new instance to an existing RAC database
 II. Deinstallation of the online patch doesn’t necessarily remove the patch at instance level
