So, how can I determine if "the instance was created with an 11.5.1 Rapid Install"?? I'm not an Oracle Apps guy at all….but I currently *am* the only DBA in the office! Is there some way to look at an existing installation and determine if "Rapid Install" (whatever that is) was used to install it?
11.5.x is a complex piece of software with a lot of moving parts. Can you run $APPL_TOP/ad/11.5.0/sql/adutconf.sql and look at the spooled output? This will hint at where you are. Patching in 11i is a nightmare. I would advice that you engage a consultant to perform this one time task. Let me warn you: This is not simple, and you will find Apps DBA consultants to be expensive.....
