The Question is:
What is required to update vms from 7.2-1 to v7.2-1h1. I am installing Oracle
9i and h1 comes up in the documentation. I have installed several patches for
7.2-1 But I think I need to be running the H1 variant.
The Answer is :
If you are running OpenVMS V7.2-1, then you will want to upgrade to
V7.2-2 or to V7.3 or later -- please see the Prior Version Support
(PVS) links in the FAQ for the Standard Support and the PVS platform
support details. As of this writing, V7.2-1H1 is no longer supported
under Standard Support, and no PVS is planned.
The OpenVMS FAQ also explains how the version numbering works, such
as indicating that V7.2-1H1 is a Hardware Release, and that such a
release is intended for limited and specific and early use on a new
platform or other new hardware, and that such a release is intended
to be upgraded to a subsequent release as that becomes available.
The OpenVMS FAQ has the available upgrade paths for OpenVMS releases.
Please check directly with Oracle for current details of, plans for,
and any specific requirements of Oracle products.
