I need steps to install Oracle patch 8.1.7.4 on a Sunfire system. If I apply this patch, is there anything we have to modify in the library?
The basic steps for applying the Oracle 8.1.7.4 patchset are:

  • Download the patch from Oracle's MetaLink Web site.
  • UnTAR them on the database server.
  • Shut down all databases using the Oracle8i home.
  • Apply the patchset to the Oracle binaries.
  • Start up all databases using the Oracle8i home and run required SQL scripts within each database.

The step-by-step instructions are quite detailed and beyond the scope of this forum, but when you download the Oracle 8.1.7.4 patchset from MetaLink, a README file with instructions for installing the patch is included. Applying the Oracle patchset to the binaries will modify or replace binaries and/or libraries as required.
