Last updated on AUGUST 04, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 10.1.0.2 to 11.2.0.2 [Release 10.1 to 11.2]
Generic UNIX
Generic Linux
Generic Windows
Oracle Server Enterprise Edition - Version: 10.1.0.2 to 11.1.0.7

***Checked for relevance on 22-Mar-2013***

Purpose

The Clusterware patches for 10g and 11g contain binaries that can be installed in the Clusterware home (CRS_HOME), and the database home (RDBMS_HOME). Due to normal upgrading of the Oracle software in a RAC environment, customers may want to maintain multiple Oracle homes of different versions. This document will explain how to apply Clusterware one-off patches into these different Oracle Homes. For example, if Oracle Clusterware version is 10.2.0.2 and one RDBMS version on that cluster is 10.2.0.1, while another is 10.1.0.5, how should you apply a patch that you have downloaded from Metalink? See solution below.
