Doubt about Oracle Database SAP Bundle Patch - 201605



I´m new in SAP WORLD and i have a doubt about Oracle Database SAP Bundle Patch - 201605.

We have a SAP installation that uses an ORACLE rdbms on LINUX.

Our customer would like to upgrade Oracle RDBMS to and told us all we need to do is to apply "SAP Bundle Patch - 201605".

But we have readed here some upgrade guides like:

- Database Upgrade Guide

Upgrade to Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (11.2): UNIX

For Oracle Patch Set Release

- Best Practice

Document Version: 1.0 – 2015-02-04

Oracle Database Upgrade to

Upgrade Guide

Both the documents explain that it´s necessary to upgrade RBMS ORACLE to using specific oracle update patches (ex: using runinstaller) and only then apply "SAP Bundle Patch - 201605".

Our customer insists that only "SAP Bundle" is necessary, so our doubts are (sorry if they are silly questions 😔):

- Is it possible to apply "SAP Bundle Patch - 201605" in a SAP installation with ORACLE RBMS installed? Or did "SAP Bundle" upgrades the RDBMS to

- If runinstaller is necessary, did we need to download it from Oracle Support?

Best regards,
