Hello,

I had an Oracle 10.2.0.5.0 database on which I applied 10.2.0.5.1 patchset (Patch  9952230).

But even after applying, the version Number of the oracle database stays at 10.2.0.5.0.

When I do "opatch lsinventory -detail " it shows that the last patch applied was 9952230
(
Interim patches (1) :

Patch  9952230      : applied on Mon Feb 21 10:35:37 EST 2011
Unique Patch ID:  12851789
   Created on 16 Aug 2010, 22:10:35 hrs PST8PDT
   Bugs fixed:

     8546356, 9963497, 8544696
   Files Touched:
     /kdt.o --> ORACLE_HOME/lib/libserver10.a
)


I am confused as to why this is happening.

Not all patches change version numbers.  As long as opatch shows it, it is installed.

This is expected behavior. As long as it is shown as applied by OPatch, it should be OK.

Thanks for the quick response,

would you happen to have a link to any Oracle Docs that back this up (in case my manager asks)?
