After several month, oracle released the latest AD/TXK RUP i.e. 11. I am going to apply these RUPs on my EBS 12.2.8. You need to follow always the below document for applying the latest AD/TXK RUPs:
Applying the Latest AD and TXK Release Update Packs to Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2 (Doc ID 1617461.1)
So the overall process of applying is:
- Run adgrants.sql from latest AD Patch
- Start Prepare Phase
- Apply the ETCC Patches
- Apply 188.8.131.52: Patch 20756887 (FMW Dependency for AD/TXK 11)
- Apply AD RUP 11 with additional AD Patches
- Apply TXK RUP 11 with additional TXK Patches
- Cutover, Cleanup
- Migrate latest AD/TXK code to Database
- Perform the sanity checks
All the patches including AD & TXK will be applied in the same patch cycle. Ensure you download and upload all the patches needed. Though in several cases ETCC patches will not be necessary its recommended to apply the latest ETCC patches needed for your environment. Each environment might need different ETCC patches so I am not going to provide details of applying ETCC patches here. Make sure you run the checkDBpatch.sh and checkMTpatch.sh to apply the respective DB and MT patches on your EBS.
cp <Patch Location>/admin/adgrants.sql $ORACLE_HOME/appsutil/admin
sqlplus '/as sysdba'
Apply 184.108.40.206: Patch 20756887:
In my case, FMW is 220.127.116.11 so I need not apply this patch but if you need to apply patch as you are in 18.104.22.168, perform the below steps :
cd <Patch Location>
Please remember that you will be applying this on Patch File System since you already started the prepare phase.
