Most important thing in IT – test system

Today I wanted to patch my Oracle Homes with the new PSU July 2016 (DB+GI without OJVM). I hoped opatchauto will work… well, it worked not.. again.

it failed on a napply and relink of isqora. OK. As it’s only my personal test RAC I was not sad, because there was information too how to fix it.. run to restore the db home and make.txt which had arround 30 make commands, basically all linking commands you see, rman, listener, basically a relink all. The log had written that these commands should be executed only under advisory of Oracle Support. If this would happen on the production server at night, well I would be really sad mad 🙂

Always test on your test systems, if you cannot patch a test system with documented notes, do not patch on production.
