Subset patch become inactive due to the application of a super set patch

Subset patch has become inactive due to the application of a super set patch

On applying patch to the oracle 11g 11.2.0.4 version, I am getting the following message:

Sub-set patch[25115969] has become inactive due to the application of a super set patch[25632525]. Please refer to doc id 2161861.1

On checking on the document id 2161861.1, we know the opatch latest version has change the feature of rollback the previous patch instead of make it inactive.

The new feature is introduced in above following released:

11.2.0.3.14 for 11g

12.2.0.1.7 for 12c

In previous version:

  1. Opatch report July patch is superset of April patch
  2. Opatch rollback the april patch.
  3. Opatch applied the July patch.
  4. Inventory show July patch
  5. After rollback backup nothing is left. No patch is applied.

In new Opatch version:

  1. Opatch does not report July patch is superset of April patch
  2. Opatch does not rollback the April patch.
  3. Opatch applied the July patch.
  4. Inventory show only July patch
  5. After rollback, Inventory show the April patch.

We can check the inactive patch with the following command:

opatch lsinv -inactive

opatch lsinventory -inactive
