- Linux x86
- Sun Solaris SPARC 32-bit (which is also good for 64-bit)
- HP-UX PA-RISC 64-bit
The reason for the updated patch is to fix some additional bugs specific to these platforms, namely:
BUG 6742626 - DISCOVERER DISCONNECT IF WE DRILL TO RELATED TO THE SAME ITEM TWICE
BUG 6933011 - 'AN ERROR OCCURRED WHILE ATTEMPTING TO PERFORM THE OPERATION' WHILE OPENING REPO
BUG 6686944 - FONT SIZE TOO SMALL EVEN IF ADJUSTPLUSFONTSIZE = "TRUE" AND ZOOM SET
If you are using Solaris and have already applied the initial patch then you should be fine, but since 7306816 has three more patch fixes, then this will be the one recommended by Oracle Support going forward if it is available for a specific platform. Personally, if I was on Solaris, I would apply 7306816 even if I had already applied the original 7111816. I like to have the latest fixes where possible.
As I say, it is currently released on Solaris, Linux and HP-UX.
The Windows platform will continue to use 7111816
By the way, if you are using E-Business Suite 11i or 12i then all of the cumulative patches for Discoverer 10.1.2.2 are certified for use. You do not need to wait for further confirmation by Oracle as this is part of the patch release testing.
However, neither Discoverer 10.1.2.3 nor its recently released CP1 are certified for use with E-Business Suite so do not upgrade to 10.1.2.3 at this time. 10.1.2.3 is a non-reversible upgrade so don't go there if you are using E-Business Suite. You have been warned!
