We would like to upgrade GI (including ASM) from to patchset

Pre upgrade preparation:

(1) To upgrade existing GI (, you need to choose “out-of-place” upgrade approach. “in-place” upgrade is NOT supported.

(2) Prepare new filesystem for “out-of-place”.
new filesystem /usr/grid_gxs2
new GI ORACLE_HOME=/usr/oracle_gxs2/oracle/product/11.2/db_1

(3) Either one the following patch required in existing GI in order to upgrade to GI (My existing GI already has bug fix 9413827):

a. Patch the release Oracle Grid Infrastructure home with the fix for bug 9413827.

b. Install Oracle Grid Infrastructure Patch Set 1 (GIPS1) or Oracle Grid Infrastructure Patch Set 2 (GIPS2).

(4) Download GI patchset (p10098816_112020_Linux-x86-64_3of7.zip) from Oracle Support (also known as Metalink) which about 814MB.
Extract the zip file to any available temporary filesystem beside existing GI ORACLE_HOME and new GI ORACLE_HOME.

(5) Please read relevant document: 1179474.1, 10036834.8, 1268390.1, 1051783.1.
