When applying the latest PSU, I recieved the following errors from my “opatch apply” session:
Patching component oracle.odbc.ic, 22.214.171.124.0...

The following make actions have failed :
Re-link fails on target "isqora".

OPatch Session completed with warnings.
Log file location: /u01/app/oracle/product/184.108.40.206/cfgtoollogs/opatch/opatch2016-07-20_23-35-27PM_1.log
OPatch completed with warnings.
The patch was applied successfully, but the relinking did not work correctly. To fix this, I did the following:
cp $ORACLE_HOME/lib/libsqora.so.12.1 $ORACLE_HOME/odbc/lib/.
That’s all there was to it.
I did the copy and relink steps because I was trying to fix the error from OPatch. A better way to handle this is to do the copy first, then run ‘opatch apply’ and you won’t get any errors at all.
I see that Bug 24332805 was posted for this issue, but I’m not privileged enough to see the contents of that bug.
