Every patch or patch set also has a patch number to identify it


All patch and patch set releases carry version numbers. 
For ex : Oracle 10g Release 10.2.0.1, then an available patch set might be 10.2.0.2 , .... , 10.2.4.0 , 10.2.5.0


My QUES is : How can i identify Patch no ? How it is differ from patchsets no ?

Thanks in advance .. Well explanation will be Appreciated ..

I think, if you are unable to run an executable, you should then try to find another job or take a Unix/Linux course to get the basics but from the moment stay away from the server.

Yes but you you know that you have to prefix the executable by its path if it is not in your PATH variable. Razz
And other can even activate what they (should) have between the ears. Wink

I got o/p for $ ./opatch lsinventory command.

And i don't have any o/p for SQL STAT ; select * from sys.registry$history;

and one more michel My Ques is

" How can i identify patch release no ? How it's differ from patchsets no's?

- but you are saying something different.

I mean , If my version is 10.2.0.1 means => This is patchsets release no.

Quote:
How can i identify patch release no for my existing installation.


Why do you refuse to answer my simple question ? Sad

Why do you refuse to execute the command that gives you the answer better than I do?
You are unable to understand our answer, so leave it and start something else.


I do NOT spoonfeed people, I'm expecting they have a little more intelligence and understanding than a slug.

Please understand patches are handled by seniors only including MOS(metalink).

What's the need to compare intelligent or spoonfeed ?

I am relly expecting atleast +ve replies

Quote:
Some patches are for software only and some affect both software and database.


1. If  my database  needs  patch, how can I identify  ?
2. If  my oracle software  needs  patch, how can I identify ?
3. How can I identify my database needs PSU patch or CPU  patch ? 


Please don't ignore to answer my questions ..

Patch application is based upon corporate policy.
Some organizations maintain that patches must be kept up to date.
Other organizations operate under the premise that if it is not broken, then apply no patches; since a few patches have been known to cause problems.
There is no one rule that covers every situation regarding patches.
