OSR5.0.4 Patches

OSR5.0.4 Patches

Post by <r.. » Sat, 01 Jul 2000 04:00:00



I have a client running OSR5.0.4 Enterprise with the following
options/patches )listed in order of application):

        SMP
        VDM
        rs504c
        oss449f
        oss601a

Problem: oss449f was superseded by rs504c and SHOULD have never been
applied.

Proposed solution: Remove the following (in order):

        oss601a
        oss449f
        rs504c (?)

and reapply (in order):

        rs504c
        oss469d
        oss601a

as a minimal basic patch set.

Questions:
        1. Does rs504c (the second part) need to be removed as well or can
           I reapply it to make sure all files overwritten by oss449f are
           restored? (I know removing oss449f SHOULD restore overwritten
           files, but ...)

        2. Should I include any other patches in the basic set besides
           oss469d and oss601a? (There are several other patches which
           will be applied but I want to do one at a time followed
           by at least a week of operations instead of applying all of
           them in one fell swoop.)

        3. Any other suggestions, caveats, etc?

Thank you,
Lucky
