Using adop, patches can be applied in both interactive mode and non interactive mode
To run the patch in interactive mode, do not mention the patch number..Only mention the phase. This runs the patch in interactive mode and also the patch doesn't come out in case of any failures.
It waits till the worker is fixed just like adpatch.
Ex: adop phase=apply
When asked for any command line arguments, mention the following
NON- INTERACTIVE MODE:
To apply the patch in non - interactive mode,provide the patch number in the command line
Ex: adop phase=apply patches=<>
In case of any failure, the patch exists out.
To re-run the patch, after the issue gets fixed, use the following
adop phase=apply patches=<> restart=yes
To restart the patch from starting , use the below
adop phase=apply patches=<> abandon= yes
Applying patches in Downtime mode:
To apply patch in downtime mode, bring down all the services on run file system .
Prepare, finalize , cutover phases are not required when applying the patch in downtime mode.
Ex; adop phase=apply apply_mode=downtime
Applying patch in downtime mode reduces the overall time to apply the patch .
