Do you have problems or questions applying E-Business Suite patches?
Do you want to learn more about:

  • Patching strategy
  • Minimizing the risks when applying a patch
  • How to troubleshoot different patching issues
  • What information can be useful and should be uploaded in service requests or community threads (depending on the issue received)

Then use Document Id 1444322.1 Top Adpatch Patching Issues For Release 11i And 12.x as your starting point.  This document has a wealth of information about how to plan your patching so that you have a successful patching session and how to resolve failures if they happen anyway.

Many patch issues can be resolved quickly by following the troubleshooting steps in Doc ID 1444322.1.  If you need extra help try searching the E-Business Suite Patching Community by patch number first, someone else may have already hit and resolved your issue.  If you need to log a service request then providing information about all the troubleshooting steps you've already followed will help avoid you having to answer the same questions again; provide us all needed information (including all the patch log files) and you may find that we can answer your patching issue from the first update!

Want to discuss this some more?  Come and join us in the E-Business Suite Patching Community and discuss patching issues with Oracle experts and industry peers.

Oracle Access Manager 11gR1 Patchset 2 (a.k.a. 11.1.1.7) is now certified with E-Business Suite Release 12.0 and 12.1.  Applying Oracle Access Manager 11gR1 Patchset 2 will provide you with the latest set of fixes for Oracle Access Manager 11gR1 which have been validated with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.0 and 12.1. 

Oracle has two single sign-on solutions, Oracle Single Sign-On Server (OSSO) and Oracle Access Manager.
