The Oracle 9.2.0.7 patchset is available from Oracle's Metalink Web site. To register for Metalink, you will need a valid Support Identifier (CSI). CSI numbers are unique support identifiers given to each customer with a current support contract. When you download the patchset from Metalink, it will be accompanied by a detailed, step-by-step guide for how to apply the patchset.

The basic steps for applying the Oracle 9.2.0.7 patchset are:

  • Download the patch from Metalink.
  • Unzip it on the database server.
  • Shut down all databases using the Oracle9i home.
  • Apply the patchset to the Oracle binaries.
  • Start up all databases using the Oracle9i home and run required SQL scripts within each database.
