Hi I was searching for answers on patch 20127071
Table 1 Installation Types and Security Content
Instant Client Installations
But if you read further down....
3.5 Patch Installation Instructions for Oracle Instant Client
For OUI based Client-Admin installations, the 'opatch apply' takes care of updating your installation with these latest Instant Client binaries.
For Other types of Instant Client installations, Follow these steps:
Backup and replace sqora32.dll file in the Instant Client installation with sqora32.dll from the 20127071\files\bin directory
Although it was very clear that I need to do a out of place upgrade to 18.104.22.168 for db home, the instruction seem contradicting for oracle client home.
So I was wondering do I need to do an out of place upgrade to 22.214.171.124 for client home before applying the patch to client home.
many thanks for the advice in advance!
