So there I was, moving through a maze trying to figure out how to apply 188.8.131.52.7 for Grid and Database Standalone.
Now I understand why my former manager storage guy does not like ASM in preference of EMC SAN.
Why would anyone introduced the added convoluted complexity to the environment and are the added benefits justified?
Here’s the maze.
From README – Oracle Grid Infrastructure Patch Set Update 184.108.40.206.7 (Includes Database PSU 220.127.116.11.7) – 16742216 >>>
For other configurations listed below, see My Oracle Support Document 1494646.1 (Oracle Grid Infrastructure 18.104.22.168.x Patch Set Update SUPPLEMENTAL README) >>>
Doc ID 1089476.1 – Patch 11gR2 Grid Infrastructure Standalone (Oracle Restart) >>> documentation has wrong instructions
If you can figure this out, then please let me know.
If you don’t want to waste your time, here’s the solution I have Apply PSU 22.214.171.124.7 for Grid Infrastructure Standalone and DB with Oracle Restart
