OPatch Auto fails with “Bareword “ValidateCRSCTL” not allowed while “strict subs” in use” error

While applying a patch on 11.2.0.2.0 version of GRID HOME or DATABASE HOME, “opatch auto” command fails with the below error:


Bareword ValidateCRSCTL not allowed while strict subs in use at /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/grid/crs/install/crspatch.pm line 101.

Bareword ValidateCRSCTL not allowed while strict subs in use at /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/grid/crs/install/crspatch.pm line 112.

Here is a snippet of the error.


[root@ora1-3 ~]# export PATH=$PATH:/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db1/OPatch
[root@ora1-3 ~]# opatch version

OPatch Version: 11.2.0.3.11

The OPATCH version is 11.2.0.3.11 which is the latest version. In order to fix the above issue, we need to use the option “olderver” along with “OPATCH AUTO” command. This needs to be used for GI or DB versions with 11.2.0.2 and not for the later releases.

[root@ora1-3 ~]# opatch auto /u03/11202_psu_patch/ -oh /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db1,/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/grid -ocmrf /home/oracle/ocm.rsp -olderver

I was now able to apply the PSU patch successfully using the “-olderver” version.

Here we go !!
