we patched two SLES10 x86_64 2-node-RACs from 10.2.0.3 to 10.2.0.4 so
far, and both had aches with CRS (not mentioning multipath issues like
hitting all 10gR2 CRS on SLES10):
runInstaller at CRS patch complained about trying to update Oracle RAC to 10.2.0.4 before CRS was updated. Same at patching the DB binaries - runInstaller complained about an inconsisitent Version: CRS 10.2.0.4 is too old for a 10.2.0.4 Database.
No harm was done my ignoring this, but sometimes I ask myself .... you know.
ASM instances did not need patching, referencing to dbua.
First I tried to use DBUA for the DB instances, but it cancelled the instances without being able to restart them, did set cluster_database=false (what is mandatory to patch an instance), but did not re-enable this after failing and so on. But patching the instances with the SQL script worked without errors and quite well as far as I have seen until today.
