Applying Dec 2008 bundle

Hi Gurus,

I need to apply Dec 2008 bundle for my servers which are "ia64 hp server rx4640" model. VERITAS is installed in it and all the disks are under veritas. I have never done a patching in a veritas enviroment. Can anyone help me out with the procedure to perform the task.

Thanks in advance.

Hi John,

Thanks for your reply. But is there any specific tasks that we need to perform if the disks are under veritas.

Re: Applying Dec 2008 bundle


As you have mentioned, June 2008 and Rx4640, I hope you must be having HP-UX 11.23 installed and you would like to install the QPK.

Read through the bundle readme.|releaseIndexPage|releasePage{0812-11.23}|&depotId=QPK1123:B.11.23.0812.076

and in the bundle,

1. Patch PHKL_36745 has a Warning
2. Patch PHCO_35226 has a Warning

All other warning patches are having replacements. While downloading the QPK remember to include the replacement patches also in the same bundle.

* Remember to read all special installation instruction and other dependency text of each patch before installing.
