ODA: How important is the patch module of the Appliance Manager regarding patching

Currently the only supported way to patch components in the Oracle Database Appliance is to use the Appliance Manager patching module. The patching module will also patch the RDBMS and GI software.

There are plans for the future to integrate the Appliance Manager with Oracle EM, no time frame available yet.

ODA: Are there any circumstances where only one server node is rebooted after applying a patch?

It depends on the patch. One or both nodes could be rebooted.

A reboot (either one or both node) will not accor every time a patch is applied.
A reboot will accor when the OS, the ILOM or storage firmware need to be patsched, patching other components doesn't require a reboot.

It's possible to reboot one node when we patch shared storage components (SSDs and Shared HDDs).

The readme file of the patch will provide the infromation if the patch requires a reboot. In future there will be a message printed on the screen to inform the customer and ask for confirmation.
