Last updated on AUGUST 04, 2018

Applies to:

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


Opatch failed with the following error:
The patch is not applicable for /opt/oracle/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/grid_2
patch /var/opt/data/patch/16619898 apply failed for home /opt/oracle/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/grid_2


The /opt/oracle/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/grid_2 is GI_HOME.

The same error can occur when a patch is getting applied to the RDBMS_HOME.  The error message will point to the RDBMS_HOME in that case.
