Oracle Database Patchset 11.2.0.2 is Out

UPDATE(13-SEP-2010). Patchset 11.2.0.2 was removed from MOS… and then added again…

Just to inform.

Oracle RDBMS PatchSet version 11.2.0.2 is available now!

For now(10-SEP-2010) it’s available only for Linux x86 and Linux x86-64.

Patch number is 10098816.

The size of patchset is about 4.7GB!!!

Quite interesting sentence in readme for this patchset that makes sense for such big size:

Starting with the 11.2.0.2 patch set, Oracle Database patch sets are full installations of the Oracle Database software

Happy patching! 😉

PS.

Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (11.2.0.2) New Features

ONS doesn’t start after applying 10.2.0.5

I have applied 10.2.0.5 patchset to one of my test clusters and after running $CRS_HOME/install/root102.sh I was quite surprised than ONS demon wasn’t started.

ОК.  It’s time to look deeper.

$ srvctl start nodeapps -n `hostname`
CRS-1006: No more members to consider
racnode1:ora.racnode1.ons:Remote port for local node in local config does not match that from OCR.
racnode1:ora.racnode1.ons:Number of configuration nodes retrieved: 1
racnode1:ora.racnode1.ons:0: {node = racnode1.domain, port = 4948}

racnode1:ora.racnode1.ons:ons is not running …
CRS-0215: Could not start resource ‘ora.racnode1.ons’.

So we see port 4948 was configured as ONS port in OCR. OCRDUMP displays the same information. Continue reading
