this is my fourth week at my new assignment and already I am busy applying all kinds of patches. Because they have a real big environment here, it's important to know what options to provide adpatch with.
The options I mostly work with are :
- hotpatch, I don't want to put the database in maintenance mode every time
- noautoconfig, because of the multi node installation over here don't run autoconfig
But there are many more options to use. Check the following post for more options..
