Oracle Exalytics Patch Set (PS) 3 introduced Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE), Essbase and TimesTen (TT)  Subsequent to PS3 release, other TimesTen versions have been released to provide fixes for critical bugs which may be encountered by Exalytics customers.  These later patches have been certified by Exalytics and TimesTen development and are recommended to provide greater stability and performance.

This note describes the current patch recommendations for customers using Exalytics servers that have been upgraded to Patchset 3, or later.  If you are not currently using PS3, or later, you are strongly encouraged to update your Exalytics stack.  By not updating, you will be missing critical bug fixes and enhancements.  To locate information on the current Exalytics product patchsets, please refer to the Exalytics Administration and Installation Guides.



If your Exalytics server has been upgraded to Exalytics PS3, or later, Oracle Support recommends that you also apply the most current TimesTen Patch currently available. The patches listed below have been certified for Exalytics PS3+ and include the bug fixes described in the relevant patch readme.  By applying the most current patch, you will ensure more consistent and stable performance with TimesTen and will also avoid known bugs that have been fixed in the more current release.

You may obtain the TimesTen patch by clicking the Patches tab in My Oracle Support (MOS) and entering the applicable Patch ID.

Install the patch as described in the patch readme file.  It is recommended that you install the Linux/unix patch directly on the TimesTen installation on your Exalytics server. 

You may install the corresponding Windows version of these patches on any TimesTen client environments as required.  To locate the correlating Windows patch, select MOS Patches tab -> Product = TimesTen and Release = 11.2.2 and Platform = <your Windows platform> and click search. 

NOTE: If you are using Exalytics with an earlier patchset (PS), it is recommended that you install PS3 before applying these updates to TimesTen.  Exalytics certification testing includes testing with a full version stripe (i.e. PS3 was tested with OBIEE and TT  If individual component patches are applied without applying the full PS patch, it may lead to inconsistency in features and behavior.

 Additional information on doing a TimesTen in-place upgrade/update is available in the Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database Installation Guide 11g Release 2 (11.2.2).  Visit the TimesTen Documentation index for more details on your specific version.
