Just a small point, but you should probably check to see if the patch is available for your platform, instead of using, especially if you're databases are using the spatial features, specifically 3D geometry. As I remember it, you have to upgrade to first, then apply yet another patch fix to fix the 3D problem.

Also, be forewarned that starting with, lots of people seem to be getting a lot of "informational errors" in their alert log. It doesn't affect the data, it is merely a warning type error about LDI_DATE_ARRAY (going from memory here). All of these errors can be safely ignored, but it was a bit worrisome at first seeing all of these error messages constantly. I think the explanation was that one of the internal views is accessing a timestamp column, and if the value is null, it throws the error. I believe this supposed to be fixed in 11.2.
