Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2
Posted by panthan on August 27, 2014
Just like the need of Multi Node architecture for high availability Oracle introduced a new file system called Edition Based File System in R12.2, which enables the high availability while the patches are being applied. For our imagination, basically it is divided into two. They are Run and Patch Edition. Conceptually there is a third one – Non Edition. Naming wise, they are referred as fs1,f2 and ne_fs. The file system fs1 and fs2 can switch their roles between patch and run based on the patching cycle. The file system ne_fs contains the data required by both, which will never be changed by run and patch file system life cycles.
