    Hi !

    We currently have Oracle8.1.5 server and are planning to purchase & install Oracle 8.1.6. very soon.

    I was going through the Release Notes of Release 2(8.1.6) for HP 9000 Servers & Workstations and came across Operating System Patches.

    I find that a list of Patches are required to be be installed (for ex Patch Bundle 9905, PHCO_17556, PHCO_18229.....etc. and many more)

    Could anyone please tell me whether we need to install these patches on the OS prior to installing Oracle 8.1.6 and further more where would i find these patches. Do they come with the Operating System bundled Pack or do they come with the Oracle 8.1.6 Server Software and most importantly how do i go about installing these patches.

    Thanks

    It's always safe to install the OS patches as suggested by Oracle. HP releases (I think) a patchset bundle every six months (say Jun 2001, Jan 2002 etc.) - you can get the patchset CD from hp (free of cost) - Ask your unix admin to onstall it.

    You can verify what patchsets are installed using the "swlist" command.
