Issue/Introduction

I would like to have the upgrade process install the hotfix versions that I need to apply post upgrade as part of the upgrade. Is it possible to put hotfixes for the version of UIM I am upgrading to into the archive prior to upgrade?

Environment

Component : UNIFIED INFRASTRUCTURE MGMT

Resolution

It would not be recommended to put the hotfixes for the version you are upgrading to in the archive prior to update to a new release of UIM:

- The installer will not install the HF versions, it will install based on a payload that it has from the packages that it puts in the archive as part of the installer files

- Unfortunately the hotfixes are not consistent in their numbering scheme, some actually only have the build updated, so those would be overwritten when the packages are put into the archive during the upgrade, and would need to be put into the archive after the upgrade and then installed
