If getting error regarding Platform ID during prerequisite checks when applying any patch on database.

Below is the error code:

[oracle@prashant 8974084]$ opatch apply
Invoking OPatch 11.1.0.6.6

Oracle Interim Patch Installer version 11.1.0.6.6

ApplySession applying interim patch ‘8974084’ to OH ‘/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1’

Running prerequisite checks…
Prerequisite check “CheckPatchApplicableOnCurrentPlatform” failed.
The details are:
Patch ( 8974084 ) is not applicable on current platform.
Platform ID needed is : 46
Platform IDs supported by patch are: 226
ApplySession failed during prerequisite checks: Prerequisite check “CheckPatchApplicableOnCurrentPlatform” failed.
System intact, OPatch will not attempt to restore the system

OPatch failed with error code 74

Resolution:

Reset Platform ID using OPATCH_PLATFORM_ID to desired ID.

(Note: Changing Platform ID sometimes affects machines networks and you might loose connections – TNS Error – No Connection

Please perform said steps on your own risk)

example: [oracle@prashant 8974084]$ export OPATCH_PLATFORM_ID=226

Let’s re-run the patch after we are done with the ID resets —

[oracle@prashant 8974084]$ opatch apply

Running prerequisite checks…

Using user-defined value, OPatch will treat this system as platform ID ‘226’.

OPatch detected non-cluster Oracle Home from the inventory and will patch the local system only.

Please shutdown Oracle instances running out of this ORACLE_HOME on the local system.
(Oracle Home = ‘/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1’)

Is the local system ready for patching? [y|n]
