Installing Studio 12.5 Update to enable patching Studio 12.5

(Doc ID 2321374.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 27, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Solaris Studio - Version 12.5 to 12.5 [Release 12]
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on x86-64 (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (32-bit)
Oracle Solaris on x86 (32-bit)

Symptoms

When Studio 12.5 and Studio 12.4 are installed on the same system, patchadd will fail to identify the correct package version and therefore fail to install patches.

Below is an example of the error:

patchadd 151854-04
Validating patches...

Loading patches installed on the system...

Done!

Loading patches requested to install.

Version of package SPRO-dbx from directory
SPRO-dbx in patch 151854-04 differs from the
package installed on the system.

Done!
