Query About Patch Bundle


I have upgraded Ethernet Driver(combo card) on one of HP UNIX 11vi3 update 6 host.

But it was not booted. I started the OS from backup kernel. it was booted. i have installed some patch bundle(hardware,feature & quality pack). after installed patch bundle, system rebooted.

I checked the host, patch bundle was installed and also Ethernet driver also updated which i have done before patch bundle installation.

My question is, when i use backup kernel, it should rollback the kernel configuration.. is it right? if yes, how ethernet driver is updated?

Kindly clarify on this.

Re: Query About Patch Bundle


it depends - not all patches change the kernel (but driver patches should ...).
Also maybe the patch is inside any quality or hardware bundle you've installed?
