Art of BI: OBIA Windows Platform Patches
When installing OBIA 18.104.22.168.2 on a Windows OS, in the Oracle documentation, on the step for “Applying Platform Patches,” there are a couple of things you need to make sure you do not overlook. I’ve outlined the steps you need to take below.
1. Make sure you download the patch “for Microsoft Windows x86-64 bit.”
2. The documentation has you download the patches and then “2. Extract all .zip files into the same Patch Home directory.” You can do this if you are running the OPatch for the files individually. The directory should look similar to below:
3. If you are running the “perl” script to apply the patches make sure you fill out all of the information in the “apply_patches_import.txt” file located in the directory:
a. You can find the correct information on the file paths in the Oracle Documentation.
b. Once filled out double check the WORKDIR you entered into the file to make sure there are no previous patches unzipped into the directory.
4. Run the Perl script as directed in the Oracle Documentation.
5. Once all the patches are completed successfully, but before moving on to the next steps of the documentation, go to the WORKDIR/biappshiphome/win64 directory to make sure the 4 Windows specific patches are located in the directory. If not, you can run the individual OPatch for those files or unzip them into the directory and rerun the perl script.
6. MAKE SURE ALL PATCHES RAN SUCCESSFULLY PRIOR TO MOVING TO THE NEXT STEP
