Thank you all for spending your value time for answering to my query.

Waiting for all your suggestions.

Happy New Year!!!

Hi Swetha,

It is NEVER recommended even to try to install a patch of different OS version. You never know what will happen to your server.

>> changes even if i install a single patch of 11.23

Re: Patching

Hi Again,

To update to 11.23, refer following link:

http://docs.hp.com/en/5991-2701/ch06.html

Well, it is better, easy and time saving to do a fresh/cold installation instead of going for update.

Hope this helps !!

Re: Patching

Hi Swetha,

Patching and updating, both are different things.

You have to install patch of the same OS version in your server. Patch of different OS version is not recommended. and patching does not update your server to a higher level and can damage things on your current server.

Updating OS, you can do using cold-install(recommended way) or using update-ux utility. You can find many docs on HP site to update the OS.
