Oracle Database 11g Release 2 Patchset 1 (11.2.0.2) Is Now Available, But This Is Not Just An Announcement Blog Entry.

BLOG UPDATE: I should have peeked at my blog aggregator before posting this. I just found that my friend Greg Rahn posted about the same content on his blog earlier today. Hmmm.plagerism!

Oracle Database 11g Release 2 Patchset 1 (11.2.0.2 Part Number E15732-03) is available as of today for x86 and x86_64 Linux as per My Oracle Support. This is not a blog post with a simple announcement of the software availability. I’d like to point out sometime related to this Patchset that I did not know until quite recently. I don’t apply Patchsets very often since having joined Oracle so I learned a few new things about patch application particularly as it pertains to 11.2.0.2.

Read This Before Touching 11.2.0.2!

I recommend reading MOS Note 1189783.1 – Important Changes to Oracle Database Patch Sets Starting With 11.2.0.2. There are two key topics this MOS note explains quite well:

  • The reason behind why the 11.2.0.2 Patchset download for x86_64 is 4.9 Gigabytes in size
  • More clarity on the concept of an “out-of-place upgrade”

I’ll wish I had read MOS note 1189783.1 before I trudged headlong into my first 11.2.0.1->11.2.0.2 upgrade effort!
