    Content:

    Heads up to anyone planning to apply the latest OAC patch 18.3.3-122. I tried applying the patch today and it failed. Has anyone else tried and been successful?

    The failure information from the Activity page just included a lot of statistics.

    I've opened an SR for this. Hopefully the problem will be easy to fix.

    Version:
    Current OAC version is 18.3.3-69

        3-18880375257. I worked with support on this yesterday. After the patch failed, backups also failed. And then the script to collect diagnostic logs failed. We tried several things but nothing worked. I ended up dropping the instance and recreating it. I was going to test the patching again, but, of course, the new instance was created with the latest version, 18.3.3-122. I have 2 other instances I can potentially test patching with but they both have issues that must be resolved first.

        Another issue with this patch is the lack of information about it. The readme that is linked has not been updated since September, so I don't really know what's included. I'm guessing that Essbase is not included since the Essbase version did not change; it's still 12.2.1.1.114. Support has contacted development to get more information.

      i was about to install this patch since Oracle's Data Viz is horrible, hoping for some decent improvements.  i clicked on the readme file and as you said, its still the old readme from September, so guess what, you don't know what you are getting.  Nice..
