Preparing to do updates on OES1 boxes Several items -

Please illuminate differences between "patches" and "updates". One TID (10097537) says "never" install "patches", (using Red-Carpet) only "updates".

It also says that "rug pl oes:*" will break stuff like cluster services. One assumes this is simply a warning against that specific construct. ?

I just updated a test cluster, using red-carpet, and did not see any "patches" only "updates". This was before reading the referenced TID. All seem to have gone well.

But, other, production, boxes show both "patches" and "updates". What do do?

Looking in History of the test box, can see that some, if not all, of the patch numbers were installed a while back. Seems like this inferrs the patches should be installed, then the updates can be installed.
