To apply Oracle patches

2 Install the patches or patchsets required for your Oracle RAC installation.
     See the Oracle documentation that accompanies the patch or patchset.
If the patch is for Oracle database software, after applying the patch, before
starting the database or database instance, relink the SF Oracle RAC libraries
with Oracle libraries.

resource:
      # hagrp -unfreeze grp_name
