After patch upgrade in 11g Not able to see current patch

Hi Experts,

After upgrading the patch upgrade through MOPatch from to , I can see the log as succeeded .

But when I am connecting through sqlplus / as sysdba the version is still showing as . Have I missed something I used the readme file README_201111_AIX which is downloaded with this patch.

I have to also add one more fix_control after patch upgrade that means system is reading the right patch. So, Please suggest how to check this .

Thanks in Advance.

    Hello, navigate to

    /oracle/SID/11202/OPatch directory and


    opatch lsinventory | more

    You will see lines like this

    Oracle Database 11g  
    There are 1 products installed in this Oracle Home.

    What release you see here? Regards.

    • Hi,

      You can view the latest version applied in a file called version.txt which will be present in log folder when you applied the mopatch. It will demonstrate the updated version.

      Additionally you can run sql command to check the oracle version

      Select * from v$version;


      select banner from v$version;

      Hope this helps.

    Hi Gaurav,

    we already discussed this topic several times. This is a normal behaviour.
