Oracle upgrade

Need some help with a simple question. We have an (reasonably recent) instance of OpenView running, and received the patch for Oracle from our current to Looking in the documentation I could not find any problem, but would apreciate if somebody could confirm this for me:
Is there any special step that I should do for this upgrade in addition the procedure described in Oracle's documentation?
Platform details:
HP-UX 64 bits 11.11
2GB virtual RAM

Re: Oracle upgrade

You are woefully short of RAM for running Oracle.

I know of no additional procedures other than those on Oracle's metalink site for doing this upgrade.

I've done this upgrade on 11i v1.

Re: Oracle upgrade

Just make sure the release is supported with your version of OpenView. I'm not up on the current support requirements, but in the past OpenView often needed particular Oracle releases to be supported. Whilst it may actually work, you may find HP will not support you if you run into problems down the line.

Check on for full support details.

Yes, there is a very important step:

1 - do it on a Test environment
2 - Test it and if it is approved:
3 - Backup Production environment ($ORACLE_HOME in this case)
4 - Apply the patch on Production environment
