How can I apply a patch on Oracle 9.2?
Depending on the patch you are attempting to install, the instructions may vary slightly. The basic steps are to first download the patch you require from Oracle's Metalink Web site. Unzip the patch on the server where it is to be installed, start up the Oracle Universal Installer (OUI), point to the patch set and follow the prompts until installation of the patch is completed. If you have existing databases using this ORACLE_HOME, you will also have to run SQL scripts (depending on the patch) within the databases to upgrade them to the appropriate release level.
