I´m new in SAP WORLD and i have a doubt about Oracle Database SAP Bundle Patch 220.127.116.11.160419 - 201605.
We have a SAP installation that uses an ORACLE 18.104.22.168 rdbms on LINUX.
Our customer would like to upgrade Oracle RDBMS to 22.214.171.124 and told us all we need to do is to apply "SAP Bundle Patch 126.96.36.199.160419 - 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 188.8.131.52
- Best Practice
Document Version: 1.0 – 2015-02-04
Oracle Database Upgrade to 184.108.40.206
Both the documents explain that it´s necessary to upgrade RBMS ORACLE to 220.127.116.11 using specific oracle update patches (ex: using runinstaller) and only then apply "SAP Bundle Patch 18.104.22.168.160419 - 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 22.214.171.124.160419 - 201605" in a SAP installation with ORACLE RBMS 126.96.36.199 installed? Or did "SAP Bundle" upgrades the RDBMS to 188.8.131.52?
- If runinstaller is necessary, did we need to download it from Oracle Support?
