Just a quick note that Oracle Exadata Database Recommended Patch (BP9) came out a week ago. The patch number is 12681774 and itâ€™s available for Solaris x86-64 and Linux x86-64 yet. It seems that Oracle is releasing a BP every month, BP7 came out on May 17 and BP8 came out on June 17. For BP9 patch installation OPatch version must be upgraded to 18.104.22.168.5 and if you havenâ€™t install any BP until now then most probably you need to download and install latest version of opatch, which is available for download with patch 6880880.
This release coincide with release of Critical Patch Update (CPU) July 2011 for 22.214.171.124 and also release of Patch Set Update (PSU) 126.96.36.199.3.
