Hi LS,

Thank you, I am just wandering the snapshots on ORACLE HOME should it be the benefit when we apply patch or upgrade the oracle? So we can skip the backup of oracle home and fast of restoring it in case it needed?

I am not sure it is worth to do it or not? We have enough space on both local and NetApps. Just curious to know.
