Patching EM 13c to Release Unit 13.4.0.10

Patching EM 13c to Release Unit 13.4.0.10

This will be a small blog post to help you patch your EM 13c environment to the latest release unit, which is 13.4.0.10. Which I highly recommend, as it fixes a bug (32288282) if you are planning to upgrade from EM 13.4 to 13.5.

The first thing is to download the following three patches:

  1. p19999993_134000_Generic.zip (OMSPatcher patch of version 13.9.4.5.0 for Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 13.4.0.0.0 For RU6 and above)
  2. p28186730_139425_Generic.zip (OPatch 13.9.4.2.5)
  3. p32318082_134000_Generic.zip (EM RU 13.4.0.10)

Once I had downloaded the needed patches, I proceeded to create the weblogic key so that I can use a property file, called property_file.txt, during the patching activity.

[oracle@ol7-em134 em_patch]$ ls
p19999993_134000_Generic.zip  p28186730_139425_Generic.zip  p32318082_134000_Generic.zip
[oracle@ol7-em134 em_patch]$ cd /u01/app/oracle/middleware/OMSPatcher/wlskeys/
[oracle@ol7-em134 wlskeys]$ ./createkeys.sh -oh /u01/app/oracle/middleware -location /home/oracle/working/keys
The oraclehome passed is valid.
Please enter weblogic admin server username: weblogic
Please enter weblogic admin server password: 
Trying to get configuration and key files for the given inputs...
This operation will take some time. Please wait for updates...
'createkeys' succeeded.

[oracle@ol7-em134 keys]$ cat /home/oracle/working/keys/property_file.txt
AdminServerURL=t3s://ol7-em134.localdomain:7102
AdminConfigFile=/home/oracle/working/keys/config
AdminKeyFile=/home/oracle/working/keys/key

Now, I installed the latest OPatch to the OMS home. For this I need to stop OMS, making sure I had set the variable ORACLE_HOME to the OMS Home location. Also I updated to the 13.9.4.5.0 omspatcher.

[oracle@ol7-em134 em_patch]$ export ORACLE_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/middleware
[oracle@ol7-em134 em_patch]$ export PATH=$PATH:$ORACLE_HOME/bin:$ORACLE_HOME/OMSPatcher
[oracle@ol7-em134 em_patch]$ emctl stop oms -all

[oracle@ol7-em134 em_patch]$ unzip p19999993_134000_Generic.zip -d $ORACLE_HOME

Once I had finished setting up the latest OMSPatcher and OPatch, I now ran an analyze to see if I could proceed with the patch. I did see some warnings when I ran analyze, but these were due to that I didn’t have a few plugins enabled in my EM deployment.

[oracle@ol7-em134 32318082]$ omspatcher apply -analyze -property_file /home/oracle/working/keys/property_file.txt

With the OMS still down, I now applied the 13.4.10 release unit.

As you can see, patching EM to the latest release unit is not that complex, but you will need downtime to update to the latest opatch and the actual patch application,
