in a mixed platform environment consisting of Windows, HP-UX (PA) and HP-UX
(IA64), the amount of periodic Data Protector patches easily exceeds 1GB. Or,
to put it in other words, the size of the initial installation media.

I wonder whether there are revised installation media (thinking of desaster
recovery). It doesn't look like that, but personally I think once the amount
of patches exceeds the size of the original, a new release should be made

What makes thinks worse is that even the RC seems unable to provide pacthes
for non-HP-UX platforms. Happy downloading!
