Question:
Does CA PPM need to be down for Oracle database patching or will it reconnect on its own?
Answer:
It is recommended to have the CA PPM application down during the Oracle patching.  If the patch touches or makes any updates to the tables or views while the application is up and running it may cause the data to be corrupted and may resuls in the application being unusable.
