Nessus has reported Oracle Security Patch #68 is missing. How can I verify either the patch has been installed, or it hasn't?

Thanks.

Joe

Use opatch oracle utility

This Oracle patch utility available for Oracle 9.2.x is installed by downloading & unzipping file p2617419_210_GENERIC.zip (which creates sub-directory Opatch -- e.g., $ORACLE_HOME/Opatch.)

optach is very handy for checking which patches have been applied to a particular $ORACLE_HOME -- viz (ex. from webctdb):

eg:
$ opatch lsinventory

Using ORACLE_HOME/oui to look up oui libs...
