11.0.x : Patch Installation Frequently Asked QuestionsQuestions & Answers-------------------1)When applying patches, where should the patch files reside so thatADPATCH can findthem? The patches can be copied anywhere as long as the environment is setcorrectlywhen executing ADPATCH. Usually, the patches are located in adirectory under $APPL_TOP.2)Which drivers should be run first? If they have been run in thewrong order can you runthem again? Patches that begin with 'db??????.drv' are database drivers.Database driversshould always be run after the patch.drv driver. Thepatch.drv is a file system patch whichis used to update the file systemwith new versions of certain files. When there is morethan one 'db'driver, the readme.txt should provide information on the requiredsequencefor application. If 'db' drivers are not run in the correct order, you may rerun themusingthe correct sequence.3)What does ADPATCH actually do with a 'db' driver? It alters the tables in the database.Even if the executables arerestored (on the file system), they may not work properly because thestructure and information in the database has changed. These patchescancreate tables, add indexes, and alter the APPS schema. The only way toback-out a 'db'driver is with a database backup.4)Is there a file that lists all of the patches that have been appliedto the application? Thereare two files that are created in APPL_TOP directory which listall the patches applied tothe application:o applptch.txto applpatch.tmp These files are created when a newAPPL_TOP is created. Without the.txt file, patches cannot be applied. Grep the .txt filefor the patchnumber in question.5)Is there a command to list all to the patches for one application? grep -i 'begin bug ar'applptch.txt6)Can you reapply a patch?
