This is the error I received....

OPatch encounters the following issues during file patching: The following java archives on Windows had problems with being patched:

1.	oembase-9_2_0.jar
	[ object: PublishedReportGenerator.class ]

I have the correct opatch version; I set the Oracle Home properly; I didn't do anything with Perl but presume it's OK because opatch ran... So, where do I go from here?

we have applied patch 5064365 (Release Patch 9 ) succesfully before. Some things to pay attention to: - bring down all services/programs that can potentially use Oracle client libs before you start, including your own sqlplus sessions to bring down the databases!

- opatch version must be at least
- set active_state_perl=TRUE and set PERL5LIB to your perllib
- set oracle_home properly

It helps if you can give a brief description of the type of errors you see.

Btw, I noticed today that there's yet another patch on Metalink labeled 5212087 (540K/11-May-2006) According to the description it contains a fix for DBMS_STATS, I didn't check if 5212087 is a vehicle for fixes of security issues still open after CPUApr2006.
