It will generate the TUMS report like tumsr12.html. Based on this report we need to proceed with upgrade.

Search html report on db node.

Run the TUMS report and send to functional team
2.3 Apply 11i.AD.I.6 (conditional)

SQL> select patch_level from apps_fnd.fnd_product_installations where patch_level like '%AD



SQL> select bug_number from ad_bugs where bug_number='7429271';

3.6 Apply upgrade driver patches


Adpatch preinstall=y

Patch 16791553 along with Finance pre upgrade patch documented in 1127593.1

Oracle E-Business Suite Pre-install Patches Report [Video] [ID 1448102.1]

To apply patches in pre-install mode, run adpatch with preinstall=y:

$adpatch preinstall=y-------/r12_upgrade/R12.1.1Preinstallpatches/u_merged.drv=
To merge the pre-install patches:
Review the contents of the $APPL_TOP/admin/$TWO_TASK/preinstall directory and ensure that only the
patch drivers of the desired pre-install patches are present in the directory.
Merge the patch drivers present in the $APPL_TOP/admin/$TWO_TASK/preinstall directory with the
Release 12.1 upgrade driver $AU_TOP/patch/115/driver/u6678700.drv.

o Change directory to $AU_TOP/patch/115/driver. For example:

cd $AU_TOP/patch/115/driver

o Perform the merge using the following command:

admrgpch -d . -preinstall -master u6678700.drv

Note: By default, the merged driver is created in the specified destination directory with the name

Apply the newly merged Release 12.1 upgrade driver (for example,
$AU_TOP/patch/115/driver/u_merged.drv) with adpatch

3.7 Run the NLS upgrade patch driver

(Here we merged all 3 language patches already)

adpatch driver= u_merged.drv

If you have several languages to download and run, then you can merge the patches and apply
them as a single, merged patch

Note: See Oracle E-Business Suite NLS Release Notes for your release level for more information.
See also Oracle E-Business Suite Patching Procedures for information about merging NLS patches.
