Changes

 Generally the permissions of some Oracle executables have to be changed on Linux/Unix after the installation. This is done by “root.sh”

i.e, ownership of extjob, jssu and oradism was changed to “root” by root.sh

After applying patch the permissions get changed. As external jobs are rarely used.
