I was patching an Oracle 12.1 Restart with latest bundle patch this week and realized that the -ocmrf option is no longer needed.
This enhancement started with Opatch 22.214.171.124.5 so now you have one more reason to update your Opatch 🙂
Don’t even bother looking for emocmrsp binary … it is no longer there !
So things just got easier ! All you have to do is run:
opatchauto apply <UNZIPPED_PATCH_LOCATION>/<BUG NO> Example for 12.1 BP: export PATH=$PATH:/u01/app/126.96.36.199/grid/OPatch/ opatchauto apply /home/oracle/stage/29176139/29141038
Reference: MOS note 2161861.1, 1591616.1 and readme.html for patch 29176139.
