Hi I was searching for answers on patch 20127071

from https://updates.oracle.com/Orion/Services/download?type=readme&aru=18441244

Quote:


Table 1 Installation Types and Security Content

Client-Only Installations

NONE

Instant Client Installations

NONE


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 11.2.0.4 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 11.2.0.4 for client home before applying the patch to client home.

many thanks for the advice in advance!
