RP/TUX 8.0, TUX 8.1 - Patch installation script does not work if it is /WS-only installation (Doc ID 769980.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 04, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Tuxedo / Tuxedo / 8.0, 8.1
Information in this document applies to any platform

Goal

When user has a /WS-only installation of Tuxedo 8.0, the Tux 8.0 patch installation script does not work for any
subsequent rolling patch install. This problem is found in AIX 4.3.3 platform and most likely it applies to all Unix
platform.
Steps to replicate:
1) Have a Tuxedo 8.0 installed (select /WS client only category) from CD on a AIX 4.3.3 machine
2) Subsequently, try to apply the rolling patches like R004_TUX80_P-AIX433.tar.Z, R007_TUX80_P-AIX433.tar.Z and
R010_TUX80_P-AIX433.tar.Z
==> They will all be installed OK but you cannot find the corresponding patchlev file copied/updated to the
$TUXDIR/udataobj directory.
Note: If you compare the Tuxedo v7.1 rolling patch installation for /WS client only installation, the corresponding
patchlev file will be copied/updated to the $TUXDIR/udataobj directory.
3) The latest  R024_TUX80_P-AIX433.tar.Z is the worst in the way that the patch installation will fail for the /WS
client only installation on AIX paltform.  The patch installation will fail/rollback with the errors in
touching&copying some samples files!
