Hi Martin
"NEVER forget to execute "catbundle.sql psu apply". It's always mandatory to call it - even in the case when you created the instance AFTER applying the PSU to the ORACLE_HOME"

I'm not sure if this is still necessary...

According to My Oracle Support Doc ID 461082.1, it isn't necessary to run catbundle.sql for most recent releases if the DB is created after the PSU is applied. Looking at the PSU 7 README, section "3.4 Patch Post-Installation Instructions for Databases Created or Upgraded after Installation of PSU in the Oracle Home":

"There are no actions required for databases that have been upgraded or created after installation of PSU"

I've been following this advice and have checked that DBA_REGISTRY shows the PSU is applied when I create a new DB, and it is the case.
