SAP oracle database

Hi,

I'm actually a DBA and rather new to SAP

For SAP system, the oracle database installation is done using the media downloaded from SAP.

For the oracle database bundle patches (SBP), also downloaded via SAP portal.

Is the oracle binary + patches downloaded directly from oracle different compared to the one from SAP?

Can i use the binary downloaded from oracle for SAP oracle installation?

thanks

Hi Elson,

Welcome to SAP oracle wold.

You CANNOT use oracle binary (software media, patch) from oracle, if the oracle is used for SAP, you have to download them from SAP.

SAP did lots of customizing for oracle installer, and also sap will select/test oracle patch and combined them into SBP (patch collection).
Please never apply any patch from oracle directly without consulting SAP support.

Also there is no direct oracle binary + patches, you have to download software installation and patch separately.

Best regards,
James

It depends through whom the database is licensed. If your database is licensed through SAP then use the packages provided by SAP to patch / upgrade the database.
