11g r2 3 additional patches on AIX 5 and 3 addition on AIX 6

I was trying to 11gr2 on AIX 5 (64bit) and found that we need to apply 3 additional patches for the installation.



This is how can we check if the 11gr2 required patches on AIX.
/usr/sbin/instfix -i -k "IZ42940 IZ49516 IZ52331 "


If not installed you will get an output like this.


11g/app/product/11.1.0/db_1>/usr/sbin/instfix -i -k "IZ42940 IZ49516 IZ52331 "
There was no data for IZ42940 in the fix database.
There was no data for IZ49516 in the fix database.
There was no data for IZ52331 in the fix database.




The install guide talks about this.

SOLARIS
Then in thought it will be interested to check for SOLARIS and HP-UX also.
We need to check for the following in SOLARIS
# pkginfo -i SUNWarc SUNWbtool SUNWhea SUNWlibC SUNWlibms SUNWsprot \
SUNWtoo SUNWi1of SUNWi1cs SUNWi15cs SUNWxwfnt

Another intersting this:  Database Smart Flash Cache (An Enterprise Edition only feature.) The following patches are required if you are using the flash cache feature: (SOLARIS)

125555-03

140796-01
140899-01
141016-01
139555-08
141414-10
141736-05

to know more about Smart Flash Cache read my previous article :http://oracleinout.blogspot.com/2010/04/flash-cache-11g-new-feature.html


To determine whether an operating system patch is installed in SOLARIS , enter a command similar to the following:

# /usr/sbin/patchadd -p
grep patch_number(without version number)
If an operating system patch is not installed, then download it from the following Web site and install it:

http://sunsolve.sun.com/
HP-UX

To determine whether a patch is installed, enter a command similar to the following:

/usr/sbin/swlist -l patch  grep

If a required patch is not installed, then download it from the following Web site and install it:
