12c Patching Resume with Nonrolling Option While Analyze - JSON Magic

I was engaged in an interesting Oracle 12c patching today.  Patch applicability was checked by using:

"$GRID_HOME/OPatch/opatchauto apply /u01/app/oracle/software/24436306 -analyze"

and it failed because its a non-rolling patch:

"OPATCHAUTO-72085: Cannot execute in rolling mode, as execution mode is set to non-rolling for patch ID 24315824.
OPATCHAUTO-72085: Execute in non-rolling mode by adding option '-nonrolling' during execution. e.g. /OPatch/opatchauto apply -nonrolling
After fixing the cause of failure Run opatchauto resume with session id "F7ET "]"

So now I wanted to analyze the patch with non-rolling option.

$GRID_HOME/OPatch/opatchauto apply /u01/app/oracle/software/24436306 -analyze -nonrolling

opatchauto bootstrapping failed with error code 1.


In 12c, we have the patching sessions with their configuration in JSON files.

So go to directory $grid_home/OPatch/auto/dbsessioninfo/

and find the JSON file with session id F7ET, which was given in above error.

Edit this file and change the flag of non-rolling to TRUE.

      "key" : "nonrolling",
      "value" : "false"

Change above to :

      "key" : "nonrolling",
      "value" : "true"

Save the file and run the opatchauto analyze again with resume session

$GRID_HOME/OPatch/opatchauto resume -session F7ET

and it works!!!

Happy Patching!!!

This is what that old 2009 video with 8 million views trying to explain this will get wrong. Another distinctive function of the roulette at Tachi Palace is the “albatross” configuration which uses two betting tables serviced by one roulette wheel in between. For many years, this style of table was hardly 메리트카지노 ever found outside of Monte Carlo. At its core, the item of Roulette is to choose which number that little white ball will land on around the Roulette wheel.
