This second email has been sent to customers who have downloaded the patch for CPU 12 April for the Oracle database 10.1.0.2 (Patch 4181849 or 4213305) for Windows 32-bit and 64-bit platforms.
It goes on to say that an installation script was missing causing the context component to not be patched correctly. If Context is not installed there is not an issue and it is only a problem for Windows platforms and version 10.1.0.2. If Context was installed I will repeat the suggested instructions here:-
1. Backup of the file driload.pkh from %ORACLE_HOME%\ctx\admin.
2. Copy the file driload.pkh from "%ORACLE_HOME%\rdbms\admin" to "%ORACLE_HOME%\ctx\admin":
>cp %ORACLE_HOME%\ctx\admin\driload.pkh %ORACLE_HOME%\ctx\admin\driload.pkh.back
>cp %ORACLE_HOME%\rdbms\admin\driload.pkh %ORACLE_HOME%\ctx\admin\driload.pkh
3. Startup all the database instances running out of the ORACLE_HOME being patched.
4. For each database instance running out of the ORACLE_HOME being patched, connect to the database using Sqlplus as sysdba and run driload.pkh:
Again Oracle expresses their apologies for this unfortunate issue. If you are familiar with the bugs discovered and fixed in CPU 12 April you will immediately recognise that itís possible to escalate privileges to a DBA with this package on Windows even if CPU 12 Apr has been installed so it is important to follow these instructions to secure the problem.
