Hi All,

We have been asked to reduce the number of personals involved during our quarterly database patching. I was looking into using the fleet maintenance. Upon doing a POC, I notice the process of deploying the software job, awaits for manual step run and confirmation at three different points (new oracle home dir creation, pre -root run section and post run section), in spite of providing the normal and privileged credentials . We are wondering if there is a way to have these steps be run as part of the process automatically, instead of running manually.

./emcli db_software_maintenance -performOperation -name="deploy195" -purpose=DEPLOY_DB_SOFTWARE -target_type=oracle_database -normal_credential=FLEETMGR_STANDARD:SYSMAN -privilege_credential=FLEETMGR_PRIVILEGED:SYSMAN -input_file="data:/oracle/local/config/xyz.inp"

The .inp file
NEW_ORACLE_HOME_LIST=/oracle/product/195 workingDir=/backup/tmp

The databases we are trying patch is 19.x We have EM 13.3c

Our advance thanks for all your thoughts and suggestions.
