What patch number were you applying?

I have had some cases where datapatch fails on simply updating the tables in the database and have had to run the direct command that datapatch would run against the database to get it to work.

Hello Gurus,  

I was applying a bug patch on the database on windows.

Opatch successfully applied, but the post installation step "datapatch"

faced error.  

The sqlpatch_invocation.log has below

Please refer to MOS Note 1609718.1 and/or the invocation log D:\Oracle\Database12cR2\cfgtoollogs\sqlpatch\sqlpatch_2144_2020_09_23_06_16_57\sqlpatch_invocation.log

I re-created the directories "OPATCH_SCRIPT_DIR,OPATCH_LOG_DIR" with the same path as mentioned in MOS Note 1609718.1 and also I rolled backed the patch and updated opatch with latest version but still same issue.  

Could you please advise.  


Thanks & Regards
