HI,

The oracle website mentions that I have to refer to some documentation. However, the documentation is not clear on specific steps. Could someone either provide specific steps for patching (applying CPU) a database that is using Data Guard? Thanks!

The patch will have a readme or similar file that walks you through the steps for the patch.  If there are special requirements for a Data Guard environment, it will have those steps.

the readme file doesn't have specific instructions all it has is this note

1.      If you are using a Data Guard Physical Standby database, you must install this patch on both the primary database and the physical standby database, as described by My Oracle Support Note 278641.1.

I looked at the note yesterday and it was not clear what I should do for my environment. Oracle is usually clear about what to do. This document wasn't easy to follow. I took a look again today and I figured out how to read the document. Thanks!
