Per the <Patch 10117518> readme instructions:

"Instructions to merge and apply R12.AD.C and AD CUP6
[required]
When directed to apply AD 12.2.0 (R12.AD.C) in Chapter 3, Upgrading to Release 12.2 within "Oracle E-Business Suite Upgrade Guide 12.0 and
12.1 to 12.2" and "Oracle E-Business Suite Upgrade Guide 11i to 12.2", perform the following steps instead:

1.1) Merge R12.AD.C (patch#10117518), AD CUP6 patch (patch#19796564:R12.AD.C ) with patch#21670164:R12.AD.C and patch#21833257:R12.AD.C
Note: This merge should be a full merge using -admode. Do not use -preinstall or -driveronly mode.

patch#21833257:R12.AD.C under <PATCH_TOP>/AD_source

c. admrgpch -s <PATCH_TOP>/AD_source -d <PATCH_TOP>/10117518_CUP6 -merge_name 10117518_cup6 -admode

1.2) Apply the merged patch driver in its entirety following the Pre-Install and Post-Install Tasks of R12.AD.C (patch#10117518) .

IMPORTANT: You should only apply the merged patch (R12.AD.C, 19796564:R12.AD.C, 21670164:R12.AD.C, 21833257:R12.AD.C) if you intend to upgrade
to Release 12.2.0 in the same downtime. Customer who wish to stay on R12.0 or R12.1 should not apply this patch."
