  2. Hi Erman,

    your document is very good.

    After the installation of the EBS 12.2.0 using the startCD 12.2.0.49, I have some conflicts for one database patch(p18260550) and one weblogic server patch(P17572726) conflict with the error message as the following:
    Patch FCX7 is mutually exclusive and can not coexist with patches: VFS8,D33T, LL4G, YIJF.


    Do you have any suggestion?

    Thanks
    John
