11gR2 Grid Infrastructure Patch Set for Solaris x86-64

"Oracle Recommended Patches" (Doc ID 756671.1) recommends 9655006 - Grid Infrastructure Patch Set Update (GI PSU2) for installations, but I couldn't find the patch for Solaris x86-64.  In fact, How
to Upgrade to Oracle Grid Infrastructure 11g Release 2
PSU2 is unavailable for Solaris x86-64 systems."

How disappointing, right?  Not really.  Instead of going to Grid, go to Grid with patch 10098816.

Sounds easy enough, except that How
to Upgrade to Oracle Grid Infrastructure 11g Release 2
also states:

  • To upgrade existing Oracle Grid Infrastructure
    installations to Oracle Grid Infrastructure, you must
    first do at least one of the following:

    • Patch the release Oracle Grid Infrastructure
      home with the 9413827 and 9706490 patches.

    • Install Oracle Grid Infrastructure Patch Set 1 (GI PSU1)
      or Oracle Grid Infrastructure Patch Set 2 (GI PSU2).

  • Since GI PSU2 is not available, and I had trouble finding the patch
    number of GI PSU1, I went with p6880880 (OPatch), followed by 9413827
    followed by 10098816.  (FYI, once 9413827 is installed, it is not necessary to install 9706490 because patch 9706490 is Subset of 9413827.)

    Ta-da!! (According to yourdictionary.com, sound of a fanfare: an exclamation of triumph or pride accompanying an announcement, a bow, etc)
