Oracle CPU patch July 2006 @ PDB

CPUJUL2006 for Physics Database Services.

Database Oracle Homes needs to be patched (all versions) as documented in Metalink's Note 372927.1 A third-party link with a description of the vulnerabilities: http://www.red-database-security.com/advisory/oracle_cpu_jul_2006.html

The following Oracle home types are not affected by this CPU patched:

  • Oracle CRS
  • Oracle Agent
  • Oracle Client

The installation guide is in the README.html of the patch

PDB Schedule

Please update here the schedule and status: CPUJul06Schedule

RAC installation

NOTE: this patch is not rolling

  • copy the patch locally into oracle_binaries/CPUJul06
  • temporarily stop DB monitoring and backup, where relevant
  • create a copy of the pfile on the node where you plan to run catcpu (postinstallation) (create pfile=.. from spfile)
  • srvctl stop database -d ..
  • srvctl stop asm -n <node-name>
  • srvctl stop nodeapps -n <node-name>
  • check that there are no oracle processes running from $ORACLE_HOME: ps -ef|grep ^oracle
  • copy the patch into $HOME/oracle_software; unzip; cd 5225799
  • $ORACLE_HOME/OPatch/opatch apply -local
  • repeat for all nodes (note we prefer to apply locally even on RAC, for multinode RACs, pconsole can be used to run the same command on multiple nodes)

Post install

  • from the patch home (5225799) cd files/cpu/CPUJul2006/
  • startup nodeapps and ASM on the node you have chosen to run the post install step
  • sqlsys_DB
  • edit the pfile copy created earlier on and set cluster_database=false
  • manual startup pfile=..
  • if using putty increase the buffer size of the terminal window to fit 10k rows. Please note also that catcpu script will spool on a file called APPLY_....log
  • @catcpu.sql
  • @?/rdbms/admin/utlrp
  • Note: ORA-02303: cannot drop or replace a type with type or table dependents (ignorable error from README.html) is an ignorable error
  • when all checks are ok, shutdown the instance and proceed with the os paching


  • for production: edit listener.ora to remove default config
  • sanity checks (most likely nothing to change): tnsnames.ora and dba_db_links

OS patch

  • run as root
  • mail computer operation to announce the reboot
  • run the following upgrades (they will run for a few minutes) and in the mean time shutdown crs (in backgroud)
    • crsctl stop crs
/bin/rm /etc/nospma
ncm-ncd --co grub fmonagent
!!check the logs!!
shutdown -r now
  • when the node is up, wait 5 to 10 minutes and the run (as root) lemon-host-check
  • if you get this error message '"/var/run/edg-fmon-agent" does not exist', just wait another 5-10 minutes before running lemon-host-check again
