Hi All,

I have an issue with the installation of patches after installing Oracle Database 12c.

Firstly, i installed Oracle Database 12c (12.2.0.1).Later i installed OPATCH_VERSION:12.2.0.1.14.
When am installing the patches am getting the error "OPatch failed with error code = 255".

Details :-
oracle_base path -- C:\oracle12c
oracle home path -- C:\oracle12c\product\12.2.0\dbhome_1

The below commands are for applying patch:-
set oracle_home=c:\oracle12c\product\12.2.0\dbhome_1
set Path= c:\oracle12c\product\12.2.0\dbhome_1\OPatch;%PATH%


Can anyone suggest me to resolve the issue.



Regards,
Rajesh

Copy and paste the command and its execution.

Before, Please How to use [code] tags and make your code easier to read.

Did you actually READ & FOLLOW the content of the README file?

If you actually coded it as you posted it, it will not work:

set Path= c:\oracle12c\product\12.2.0\dbhome_1\OPatch;%PATH%

You put spaces between "PATH" and "=" and the actual path. Do no put spaces.

C:\>path
PATH=(null)

C:\>echo %ORACLE_HOME%
D:\oracle\product\12.2.0.1\dbhome

-- Spaces here

C:\>set path = %ORACLE_HOME%\opatch

C:\>path
PATH=(null)

-- No spaces here

C:\>set PATH=%ORACLE_HOME%\opatch

C:\>path
PATH=D:\oracle\product\12.2.0.1\dbhome\opatch;%PATH%

As you have been asked, please copy and paste your entire command prompt session so we can see what you're doing.

You must be in the directory of the patch NOT in the OPatch directory.
Please read the readme file of the patch you're trying to apply.

The rule is:

Run opatch apply in the directory where the patch is, then run datapatch in the OPatch directory.
