MOS Note released explaining patching without STARTUP UPGRADE mode
An important note regarding OJVM rolling patching has been published on MyOracle Support:
“Beginning with the Jan2017 OJVM PSU patchset for 126.96.36.199 and for 188.8.131.52, this document defines a few specific situations where the OJVM PSU patchset can be postinstalled into each database while the database remains in unrestricted “startup” mode. This will allow a “Conditional Rolling Install” ability for the OJVM PSU patchsets for 184.108.40.206 and for 220.127.116.11″
This document applies to the 18.104.22.168 and to the 22.214.171.124 Jan 2017 OJVM PSU.
The PSU’s readme still says that the OJVM PSU is not RAC Rolling installable. This is not correct but as the PSU got released before the note got finalized the information did not get updated. The information gets added to the Known Issues section and eventually a new readme may be released.
