Fewer patches displayed
Because of the
way these new patch kits are designed, you will see many
fewer patches listed by dupatch during
the installation process. For example, a partial listing
you see will be similar to the following:
/ Security Related Patches:
* Patch 27001.00 - SP04 OSFACCT540
* Patch 27002.00 - SP04 OSFADVFS540 (SSRT2275)
* Patch 27003.00 - SP04 OSFADVFSBIN540
In the old-style patch kits, these three patches might have
consisted of perhaps 20 individual patches being displayed.
The difference is not in the content of the kits, but
rather in the way the patches are packaged and installed.
In this example, the SPO4 identifies
the patch as belonging to Version 5.1B-2 (Patch Kit 4),
the OSF...540 identifies the subset
the patch is included in, and the SSRT2275 indicates a type of security patch.
