FAQ
Dear fellow DBAs

We have received an Oracle Security alert that Oracle's recommend to
install ASAP.=20
While reading the install instructions if was surprised to see that
Oracle wants you to run Perl scripts on the Win2k server.=20
Has any of you out there with Win2k server apply this patch?? If you
have not, do you have Perl installed on your Win2k server.??

TIA

Yuval.

Part of the install instructions :

To apply the patch, make sure the ORACLE_HOME environment variable is
# set to the correct Oracle Home which needs to be patched:
#
# > set ORACLE_HOME=3D<Oracle Home Path>
#
# Then set your current directory to the directory where the patch is
# located, e.g.:
#
# > cd 3738339
#
# Ensure that the directory containing the OPatch script appears in
# your Path; then enter the following command:
#
# > perl opatch.pl apply=20

    My job would be much more difficult *without* Perl on all our Win32
    servers.

    I'd have thought the words "on all our win32 servers" redundant in

    Guys,

    -Downloaded opatch from 2617419 patch search=20
    -Was able to succesfully run lsinventory

    -set LD_LIBRARY_PATH first to 64-bit - then to 32-bit libraries and ran =

    with both times getting following error messages:

    ar: =
    /export/home/oracle/software/patches/3811887/files/lib32/libnl9.a/nlstd.o=
    ha

    Format error: data region truncated
    OPatch encounters the following issues during file patching:
    The following problems were encountered when applying patches:

    1. /opt/oracle/product/9.2.0/lib32/libnl9.a

    absolutely sure that the patch I downloaded was 64-bit (says so in the =
    zipfile) and that my base software is also 64-bit.
