Applying CPU Patch on RAC using EM -A White paper

I wrote this paper to describes the process & benefits of applying patches using the EM.
Case : RAC - 3 node 10.2.0.3
Patch : CPU July 2007
Method : Rolling patch , zero downtime , using Deployment procedures in EM.

You can access the paper here on OTN.
or by copying the below url :

Other interesting white papers on EM are also listed here .

Comments:

I'd love it if this feature worked properly. When I took my RAC class the Oracle instructor told us in no uncertain terms that patching through grid control was not ready for production.

With DB 10.2.0.3+ it works , but another pre-req is that you need to be on latest EM version or you need to apply couple of patches on top . Also this is Limited to select patches . Hope this helps. Pankaj
