Applying AD and TXK Release Update Packs to Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2

The latest RUPs while writing this post are R12.AD.C.Delta.10 (Patch 25820806) and R12.TXK.C.Delta.10 (Patch 25828573).


Apply Required Database Patches

 
AD-TXK Delta 10 requires a number of database bug fixes to install and operate correctly.
 
NOTE: Take Central Inventory backups on the database and application tiers.
 
Before you apply the AD and TXK Delta 10 release update packs (RUPs), you must run the latest version (available via Patch 17537119) of the EBS Technology Codelevel Checker (ETCC). Use the command checkDBpatch.sh (on UNIX) or checkDBpatch.cmd (on Windows).

Check the OPatch utility version.

/u01/oracle/product/dbhome1/OPatch/opatch version
OPatch Version: 11.2.0.3.16

OPatch succeeded.

Upgrade to the latest OPatch Utility.

[oracle@ebsdb01 OPatch]$ ./opatch version
OPatch Version: 11.2.0.3.18

OPatch succeeded.

Running the latest version of ETCC is required in order to:
1. Check that all the required database patches have been applied.
2. Ensure all the required ETCC database objects will be found by the Delta 10 RUP installation process. This means that you must still run the latest version of ETCC on your database, even if you already have all the required database patches installed.
 
In my environment, the following patches were missing on the Database Tier,

  • Patch 26810424
    - Filename: p26810424_112040_Linux-x86-64.zip
  • Patch 25906117
    - Filename: p25906117_112040_Linux-x86-64.zip
  • Patch 27070979
    - Filename: p27070979_112040_Linux-x86-64.zip
  •  
    After applying the ETCC patches, follow Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2: Consolidated List of Patches and Technology Bug Fixes (Doc ID 1594274.1)
    Section 3.1: Database 11.2.0.4 Patches and Bug Numbers
    Make sure all the patches mentioned in the document for the appropriate database version has been applied.
     
    You can apply the latest AD-TXK delta RUPs directly on top of any earlier Release 12.2 AD-TXK delta codelevel.
     

    Source the run edition environment file.
    $ . /EBSapps.env run
     
    Start a new online patching cycle.
    $ adop phase=prepare
     
    Apply the latest embedded application tier technology patches on the patch file system.
    From a separate session, source the patch edition environment file.

    $ . /EBSapps/appl/APPS.env
     
    Run ETCC MT checker.
    You must execute the latest version of ETCC on your application tier or the patch application procedure will fail.
    • Run the ETCC MT checker utility checkMTpatch.sh (checkMTpatch.cmd on Microsoft Windows) on the E-Business Suite application tier nodes, to identify and apply any missing patches. Make a note of any missing application tier technology patches. Missing application tier technology patches will be applied on the patch file system.
    Application Tier:
     
    After all application tier technology patches are applied to the patch file system, re-run the ETCC MT checker utility checkMTpatch.sh to check for any missing patches.
     

    Below are the list of DELTA 10 patches along with the Critical patches for AD and TXK.
     
    Download and unzip the following patches:

  • Patch 25820806 (R12.AD.C.Delta.10)
  • Patch 25828573 (R12.TXK.C.Delta.10)
  • Patch 26720905:R12.AD.C
  • Critical AD Patches

  • Patch 24591000:R12.AD.C
  • Patch 26482811:R12.AD.C
  • Critical TXK Patches

  • Patch 26400116:R12.TXK.C
  • Patch 26720231:R12.TXK.C
  • Execute adgrants by following the instructions in the readme of Patch 25820806 (R12.AD.C.Delta.10).
     

    Compare the version of adgrants.sql(UNIX) in $APPL_TOP/admin to that in patch directory.
     
    Check the version of adgrants.sql from $APPL_TOP/admin directory.

    [applmgr@ebsapp01 admin]$ adident Header /oradata/oracle/fs2/EBSapps/appl/admin/adgrants.sql
    /oradata/oracle/fs2/EBSapps/appl/admin/adgrants.sql:
    $Header adgrants.sql 120.67.12020000.46 2016/10/26 05:48:58 rputchak ship $

    Check the version of adgrants.sql from Patch/admin directory.

    [applmgr@ebsapp01 admin]$ adident Header adgrants.sql
    adgrants.sql:
    $Header adgrants.sql 120.67.12020000.51 2017/02/22 21:26:05 jwsmith ship $

     
    Copy the higher version of adgrants.sql (UNIX) to the database tier.

    [oracle@ebsdb01 AD_TXK_10]$ sqlplus / as sysdba @adgrants.sql APPS
    SQL> @adgrants.sql APPS

    Copy and unzip the patches to the $PATCH_TOP directory.
     
    Apply Patch 25820806 (R12.AD.C.Delta.10) and Patch 26720905:R12.AD.C (plus any additional critical patches).

    $ adop phase=apply patches=25820806,26720905 merge=yes

    Note: You should also add any applicable AD patches as a comma-separated list of patches to this command. Ensure you add "merge=yes" to the end of your command, as shown here:

    $ adop phase=apply patches=25820806,26720905,Your first critical AD patch,Your second critical AD patch merge=yes
     
    adop phase=apply patches=25820806,26720905,24591000,26482811 merge=yes

    adop phase=apply patches=25828573
     
    $ adop phase=apply patches=25828573,Your first critical TXK patch,Your second critical TXK patch merge=yes
     
    adop phase=apply patches=25828573,26400116,26720231 merge=yes


    Apply Patch 19259764:R12.FND.C.
    Note: Do not apply this patch if you are on either of:
