SCN issue for older Oracle versions


I am new to this, therefore need some help:

We are using PeopleTools 8.48, Peoplesoft Enterprise 8.8 for CRM application. We have database of Oracle v10. Recently, because of SCN issue, we have been asked to apply the following patches- Patch 14121009 + patch 16619894 DBPSU (July 2013 PSU).

my question- are these patches compatible with the PeopleSoft/PeopleTool and Oracle versions? Do we need to make any upgrades in parallel?

Best Answer

Product certifications typically include version numbers up to the patchset version, the 4th number (, which will not change by installing those patches.

I applied those patches last year at a customer and we had no issues at all, although they were using a custom application, not Peoplesoft.
