Oracle 12.2.0.1 Bundle Patch 12.2.0.1.170516 DBBP on Linux x86-64 is available [not anymore]

All credits go to Ricardo Maeda as I knew that we’ll release a Bundle Patch for Oracle 12.2.0.1 sometime this week – but I couldn’t find it linked from the usual MOS notes. And please don’t ask my why that is.

Anyhow, with patch 2579308 you’ll get access to the first BP for Oracle Database 12.2.0.1. There will be a first bigger Proactive Bundle Patch in July at the usual schedule – but this one is at least a start.

Plus in addition get the OPatch version 12.2.0.1.7 via patch 6880880.

The BP contains:

12.2.0.1.170516BP

First 12.2.0.1 Bundle Patch – Contents: Database BP and GI PSU

Obrigado, Ricardo!

Update June 9, 2017

It seems to be as this patch has been removed from public download. You may please check with Oracle Support – I don’t know the reason for it.

Please see:

  1. Hi Mike,
    Thanks a lot for posting this information.
    I was reviewing the readme file and it includes:
    6. Bugs Fixed by This Patch: See My Oracle Support Document 2245135.1

    But I can’t access that note. Maybe it hasn’t been made public yet? Any other way to know the list of issues fixed in that patch?

    • Felipe,

      I checked the internal version of the note but it is Under Edit and should be available soon – but out of my control.

      Cheers and sorry for the inconvenience
      Mike

  2. Suggestion:

    Any major patch ( eg quarterly ones etc) should contain a copy of the latest OPatch, and existing opatch versions should be able to pick that up and restart. So a typical installation would then be something like:

    $ cd [patch]
    $ opatch apply
    Oracle Interim Patch Installer version 12.2.0.1.6
    Copyright (c) 2017, Oracle Corporation. All rights reserved.
    Newer version of opatch needed to apply this patch, use OPatch found in patch directory ? [y|n] y
    Upgrade ORACLE_HOME opatch with this new opatch as well ? [y|n] y
    Updating opatch…
    Re-starting with new version
    Oracle Interim Patch Installer version 12.2.0.1.7
    Copyright (c) 2017, Oracle Corporation. All rights reserved.
    Is the local system ready ….etc etc

    • Connor,

      in theory I agree – but I had an internal discussion with the responsible people. And there are reasons why the most recent opatch version does not get shipped with the patch.

      Cheers
      Mike

  3. Hi Mike,

    I noticed this DBP doesnt include ACFS, WLM, however 12R1 did. Is it something expected? Maybe there is nothing to be fixed with ACFS, WLM?

    Cheers, Nariman

    • Nariman,

      my interpretation is that there were no fixes included right now but of course there are fixes for the products you list. Those may be included later.

      Thanks
      Mike

  5. Mike,

    Is this DBBP able to be installed on top of the Exadata Apr-17 QFSDP? That is, does the GI that comes with the Apr-17 quarterly patch contain sufficiently new enough Grid/Storage/Compute images to allow us to run this?

    Thanks,
    -Mike

    • Mike,

      if the readme doesn’t say it explicitly please open an SR and check with Support. Usually the ISSUES AND ALERTS note would give you advice – but for whatever reason it is EMPTY:

      MOS Note: 2239820.1 (12.2.0.1 Base Release – Availability and Known Issues) can be found at: https://support.oracle.com/epmos/faces/DocumentDisplay?id=2239820.1

      That’s why an SR is the only valid solution to find it out.

      CHeers and sorry for the inconvenience
      Mike

  6. Hi Mike,

    We’re in the processes of applying this patch to our environment, BUT it seems that the download page is gone?

    Patch 25793908 – Database Proactive Bundle Patch 12.2.0.1.170516

    It seems to me that it might be that this patch is pulled back by Oracle – is there a reason to be worried?

    FYI – Oracle Support advised that we should implement this DBBP on top of out 12.2 environment, but we’re a bit reluctant at the moment.

    Thanks!

    Vlatko

      • Hi Make,

        Thanks for the prompt response! I already checked the same with Oracle Support, and here it is the feedback:

        ” The earlier version of 25793908 has been rolled back and new version is expected to be released on June 20th. ”

        Regards,

        Vlatko

        • Thanks Vlatko – I saw a similar response on the internal mailing list the other day.
          Cheers
          Mike

  7. 25793908 is no longer available, but there’s a new BP 12.2.0.1.170620 (26129945) that says it includes 12.2.0.1.170516.

    Do you know if 12.2 is still on track to be included in the regular quarterly PSU/proactiveBP patches? If so, I’ll probably just wait for the next patch on July 18 instead of patching again all my test environments.

    • Felipe,

      yes, the regular quarterly PSUs and BPs will still be released and of course available on all platforms.
      So yes, you can certainly wait for the regular July BP 🙂

      Cheers
      Mike
