How long would you anticipate it would take to deploy the Oracle "Mitigation Patch"(patch released Oct)?  We would like to get this patch installed on the Oracle Server and are trying to plan for downtime.  Also, I am being quoted 16 hours to install the patch.  Is that reasonable?

16 hours? no
Average in our environment is 4 hours,
Just the catalog update takes approx 2 hours.

Assuming a "manual" patch rather than using OEM, one or maybe two-node RAC, Enterprise license, excluding any backups, including the pre-work -- we would run about 90-120 minutes per node.

If someone gave you a sixteen-hour quote for the systems Mike and I mention, wish them a nice life -- IMHO.  I wonder, however, if the actual intent is xxx per hour, sixteen maximum.

I thought it seemed a little high to be installing a patch.  Thank you.
