Upgrade OPatch for OEM 13c R2 Agents

Opatch utility has to be updated often as Oracle delivers regular updates to it. I was used to version 12 and it only required an overwrite of the OPatch directory. Well, not anymore with version 13c R2.
I will walk you through an OPatch upgrade from 13.8 to 13.9 version.
First export your agent ORACLE_HOME:
$: export ORACLE_HOME=/u01/oracle/oemagent/agent_13.2.0.0.0/
Verify the current OPatch version:
$: $ORACLE_HOME/OPatch/opatch version
OPatch Version: 13.8.0.0.0
OPatch succeeded.
Download and unzip the 13.9 version in a temporary directory:
$: unzip p6880880_139000_Generic.zip
Archive:  p6880880_139000_Generic.zip
   creating: 6880880/
  inflating: 6880880/README.txt
  inflating: 6880880/opatch_generic.jar
  inflating: 6880880/version.txt
As you can see, now we have some zip files and a java file. Execute java to upgrade OPatch as follows:
$: $ORACLE_HOME/jdk/bin/java -jar opatch_generic.jar -silent oracle_home=$ORACLE_HOME

  1. Alfred0 – Thanks for posting this.Also, the same steps apply for the 13.2 OMS side as well. When applying the 13.2 OMS Bundle Patch is customers are running in to 'OPatch' version issue, then they can follow the same steps which you have updated for agent.export ORACLE_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/product/mw13r2Download the patch – p6880880_139000_Generic.zipAnd run the below command$ORACLE_HOME/oracle_common/jdk/bin/java -jar opatch_generic.jar -silent oracle_home=$ORACLE_HOME
