Information in this document applies to any platform.

Also for DV920, PD920, etc, the directories get rearranged even though those are not the environments the Tools Release has been applied to. Services will not start on the Tools release that was changed out.

  4. Change the component to or greater
  5. Start services and verify with PORTTEST and Server Logs
