You create a base database VM to correspond with a base database template so you can make patches to an Oracle database.

You have identified the base database VM of the Oracle database you intend to patch.


Log in to Data Director as a system administrator.


Click the Manage and Monitor tab.


Click Base DB Templates in the left pane.


Right-click the Oracle template you identified previously and select Export to Base DBVM.


When the task completes, click Base DB Templates in the left pane.

The template will appear in the list. Depending on whether you selected the option Save the source DBVM (clone before converting) when you converted the base database VM to a template, the base VM might already be available.

Apply a patch to the base database VM.
