MetaLink Is Being Retired…
  • DRAWBACKS
    • Tightly coupled with the Configuration Manager
    • UI is challenging and busy (sometimes distracting) and you can’t:
      • Always copy screen text to clipboard
      • Can’t resize some screen windows
      • Can’t Shift+Insert into search box
    • Has a learning curve, so don’t wait until last minute.
  • Note: OCM now embedded in RDA
patch set update psu
Patch Set Update (PSU)
  • PSUs are proactive cumulative patches containing recommended bug fixes
  • PSUs contain the CPU patches as well as additional “controlled content” (i.e. no optimizer plan changes, no configuration changes)
  • Released on the same quarterly schedule as the Critical Patch Updates (CPU)
  • Rolling RAC installable
  • Regression tested
patch set update psu16
Patch Set Update (PSU)…
  • A PSU serves as a new baseline version for reporting issues to Oracle (e.g. Initial Release 10.2.0.4.1)
  • A PSU can be applied:
    • on the base release version
    • on any earlier PSU
    • on an any earlier CPU for the base release version
    • on the CPU released at the same time
psu vs cpu
PSU vs CPU
  • The PSU and CPU released each quarter contain the same security content.
  • The patches employ different patching mechanisms, so…
  • “…customers need to choose wisely which patch satisfies their needs better…”
psu vs cpu18
PSU vs CPU…
  • Once a PSU has been installed, the recommended way to get future security content is to apply subsequent PSUs.
  • “…Reverting from PSU back to CPU, while possible, would require significant effort, and so is not advised...”
  • “Choose wisely grasshopper…” 
