Dear Valued Customer,
You are being sent this email because you have downloaded the 10.2.0.2 RDBMS server patchset for Sun Sparc Solaris 64-bit from www.metalink.com.
Please note that Patch 5117016 is a MANDATORY PATCH required to be installed and run immediately AFTER installation of the 10.2.0.2 Patch Set on Sun Sparc Solaris 64-bit. This patch fixes a known issue in 10.2.0.2 Patch Set on Sun Sparc Solaris where the libserver10.a library is installed incorrectly into $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/lib instead of into $ORACLE_HOME/lib.
Any patches applied without Patch 5117016 installed must be backed out, Patch 5117016 must be applied and then the patches reinstalled.
Not applying the patch can cause subsequent problems such as:
Applying patches on top of 10.2.0.2 may have no effect.
Changing the DBA user or SGA attach address may have no effect
Further details on this issue can be found in ALERT Note 394933.1
