Thread: patch 5086

  1. patch 5086


    Anybody know what if any bad things could happen if you were doing a
    live upgrade of a system at 6.5.18m to 6.5.22m and you *didn't* install
    patch 5086 first like you're supposed to?

    Would it work? A system here was upgraded but I don't know if that
    patch was installed... since of course if you *did* install this patch
    first, once you're fully done with your upgrade, it gets removed.

    The system in question is having informix problems, and it was asked by
    informix tech support folks if we had installed this patch... and I
    don't know what to tell them.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    I got this reply from somebody at SGI... and it confirmed what I
    suspected that the patch *wasn't* installed. But I figured I'd reply
    this to the group as well, since somebody else might want to know the
    answer.

    As for what I'm going to do about it, I'm just going to load up all the
    base 6.5 cd's and the 6.5.22 overlays and get it all setup like I'm
    going to actually install - just to see what software *may not* have
    gotten installed after all.

    Not without some subsystems not being read improperly and tons of bogus
    conflicts, no -- it's pretty conspicuous.
