A software release is a server-specific set of downloadable files (patches) containing the available firmware, software, hardware drivers, tools, and utilities for the server. All of these files have been tested together and verified to work with your server.
You should update your server firmware and software as soon as possible after a new software release becomes available. Software releases often include bug fixes, and updating your server ensures that it has the latest firmware and software.
The ReadMe document that is included with each patch in a software release contains information about the patch, such as what has changed or not changed from the prior software release, as well as bugs that are fixed with the current release.
The server product notes identify the software releases supported on your server.
Each software release includes one or more downloadable files (patches). The following table describes the patches and identifies the tools that can be used to install each.
For more information about the operating system command-line application, see your operating system documentation.
Some patches might have files that can't be updated using the tools indicated in this table. Review the ReadMe file included with the patch before attempting to install an update.
