    Please see installation documentation for your patch and you'll find answer on your question.
    Best wishes!

    You might want to consider going to 8.1.7.4.

    Take a backup of the data and all the software. It makes it easier to repair everything if it goes wrong.

    Follow the guidelines.

    Cheers

    Hi,

    There are some one-off patches which can only apply on 8.1.7.3

    In my case, I have 8.1.7 database, I need to apply patch to 8.1.7.3, then apply two one-off patches , then apply patch to 8.1.7.4

    thanks , temporarily we have postponed applying patch at the moment , as the application's libraries which we are using might be accessing oracle libraries and we may need to rebuild application server part again ,
    also i heard 8.1.7.3 is more stable . i don't know about this . what is ur idea ?
