Creating Order in the Database Patching Chaos

Presented at INSYNC 21

Session ID: 101500

Have you ever found yourself staring at a list of patches and wondering what to do? What patch should I install? What are the risks? Is there anything I should do after the patch? This becomes even more stressful in a complex environment: How to install patches on RAC? What about standby databases?

This session will try to put things in order and help create a roadmap for patching databases. We will discuss the different types of patches (RU, RUR, DBBP, PSU, OJVM, One-off), installation types (RAC rolling patches, standby first patches), known issues and where to find them, and how to plan the patch installation in order to have as few surprises as possible.
