Hi all, just need to verify if restore is required after a successful patch upgrade from 8172 to 8174, what are the steps? 1. restore the old oracle binaries 8.1.7.2 only. Will this work? Does the patch upgrade change header information, and oracle dictionary. If this is the case, then binary restore will not be sufficient. Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I’ve patched from 8.1.7 to 8.1.7.4 directly and all that changed was the binaries, my enterprise edition software for oracle worked fine after upgrade.

I see no need for and upgrade of data dictionary or a restore of 8.1.7.2 binaries. Unless there is a history to this question I am not aware of.
