The patchset has a Readme file that explains how to apply the patch in great detail.

ajaybelde,

Can I ask you to explain why you accepted the answer you did?  The first two links appear to be readmes from some patch.  The third link is an overview of the OPatch utility.

The steps to apply a patch, are where I stated: In the read me for the patch.

i have also addressed the different upgrade process and pointed out the documents, i think the points should be equally splited.

The question was how to apply a specific patch not how to apply different or various patches.  Granted, all the various methods may or may not be needed with different patches but the readme for any patch will tell you the way for that patch.

I also think the doc links are specific readme files for specific patches and not general doc liks on patching.

The first link is a critical patch update (cpu) not a 10.2.0.5 patch update.  It states that you need to be on 10.2.0.5 before you apply the April CPU.

The second link is the readme for a grid control path.  Also not what was asked for.

>> i was also trying to help him by explaining the different options for upgrade

That is the reason for the 100 points.

but still i won't feel its a good stake, since you are a zone advisor and with your vast experience on the topic you would have suggested the points.
