1999 996 oil leak from plug near oil drain plug


Vehicle Information: Model: 996; Year: 1999; Body Type: Cabriolet; Total Mileage: 29000;

I have a small amount of oil leaking from what appears to be a frost plug near the oil drain plug on my 996. It is about 2 inches away from the drain plug and about a half inch in diameter. A local porsche specialty mechanic has suggested replacing the plug and using an epoxy to seal it. Is this the best approach? Also wondering what this plug does. Don't want to permanently seal something meant as a safety release type plug... Thanks.
