Information in this document applies to any platform.


Customer needs clarification about why some objects are changed (or merged) rather than replaced when installing a software update (ESU, ASU, Update, etc.). Customer installed an ESU where multiple objects were Changed (not Replaced). They then built and deployed the associated package and then began to have problems with some of the objects that were not replaced. How can we now force the object specifications to be replaced for the Changed objects?
