Installing patch kit 6 on tru64 5.1a.

Hello All,

Our tru64 cluster (2 Node, 5.1A ) is crashing once in 2 month.
Now we are planning to install patch kit 6 on each member.

Patches installed on the system came from following patch kits:

- T64V51AB03AS0003-20020827 OSF520
- T64V51AB03AS0003-20020827 TCR520
- T64V51AB21AS0004-20030206 OSF520
- T64V51AB21AS0004-20030206 TCR520
the server contains only patches till patch kit 4.

My question is Do I really have to install patch kit 5 before installing patch kit 6?

Thanks in advance.

You don't need to install pk5 before pk6. All patch kits are cumulative and includes all the patches that where in previous versions. What you should run is a patch baseline before patchking the system to identify possible conflicts. All is done by dupatch. See the documentation included with the tar package.

Give also a look to all the single patches released after PK6, which is now very old and has a lot of important corrections.
