To apply an Interim Patchset for example the Patchset or January 2010 RDBMS PSU, to both the Primary and Standby Sites.

For Dg configuration with Logical Standby Refer, "Upgrading Oracle Database with a Logical Standby Database In Place (Doc ID 437276.1)".

The process of applying the Patchset/PSU/CPU to a Primary and Standby site are same, however post upgrade/patch changes are not applied directly on standby due to the nature of Physical standby(mount/open read only).
