Possible to upgrade my OS media release?

Hi,
I'm running B.11.31 0709
I want to run Integrity VM 4.0 but it requires Sept 2008 release.

Is these a way to upgrade to this (patches, firmware)?

thanks

Fran,

Yes you can update to 0809 using update-ux

You'll need a set of media for the 0809 release then follow the instructions in the manual:

Note installing patches is *not* sufficient as it doesn't upgrade product versions.

Shalom,

If you install a bi-annual patch set, you will meet the requirement. This is the binary equivalent of a cold install.

That is what you want. You don't need update-ux

Duncan thanks for the reply, good to know i had another option.
Steven that's exactly what I was hoping.

Many thanks!

Re: Possible to upgrade my OS media release?

Sorry but SEP is _wrong_ here - applying patches will *not* bring you up to the 0809 release - only doing an update-ux (or cold install) will. If you're not on the 0809 release you will find that VM4.0 cannot be installed.

Re: Possible to upgrade my OS media release?

Sorry SEP, your statement is only true up to 11.11, but not for newer releases.

Do you ever re-visit such threads?

You will see me posting similar replies and a link to my example:

Hope this helps!
