11gR2 Grid Infrastructure Patch Set for Solaris x86-64
By Jeff Taylor-Oracle on Jan 12, 2011
"Oracle Recommended Patches" (Doc ID 756671.1) recommends 9655006 - 220.127.116.11.2 Grid Infrastructure Patch Set Update (GI PSU2) for 18.104.22.168 installations, but I couldn't find the patch for Solaris x86-64. In fact, How to Upgrade to Oracle Grid Infrastructure 11g Release 2 states, "GI PSU2 is unavailable for Solaris x86-64 systems."
How disappointing, right? Not really. Instead of going to Grid 22.214.171.124.2, go to Grid 126.96.36.199 with patch 10098816.
Sounds easy enough, except that How to Upgrade to Oracle Grid Infrastructure 11g Release 2 also states:
To upgrade existing 188.8.131.52 Oracle Grid Infrastructure installations to Oracle Grid Infrastructure 184.108.40.206, you must first do at least one of the following:
Patch the release 220.127.116.11 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)
