21 Simulating Patching Deployment Procedures to Check Prerequisites

Enterprise Manager Grid Control offers patching Deployment Procedures that help you patch targets such as Oracle Database, Oracle RAC, Oracle ASM, and Oracle Clusterware. However, before you run the actual patching Deployment Procedures, Oracle strongly recommends you to simulate the Deployment Procedures so that you check the prerequisites and ensure that you meet all the necessary requirements for patching, and also resolve all operational conflicts and issues beforehand.

Table 21-1 lists the patching Deployment Procedures that support the simulation mode, and describes how you must run them in that mode.
