What do you need to know before installing a Fix Pack

Administrators need to take into account several things when deciding to install a Fix Pack:

  • See what fixes are included in each Fix Pack:
Refer to the Notes/Domino Fix List.

  • Access previously applied hotfixes
Many customers have applied one or several "hotfixes" to a particular release of Lotus Domino. In order to apply the latest Fix Pack, previously applied hotfixes must be uninstalled prior to installing the Fix Pack. A Fix Pack may, or may not, include fixes that were previously made available as hotfixes. The stability of a Fix Pack is much preferred over hotfixes, and replacing earlier hotfixes with a Fix Pack is a good decision.

1. Determine whether any hotfixes are currently installed on your system for 6.5.6
  • Use the i5/OS CL command: DSPPTF LICPGM(5733L65) RLS(V6R5M6)
2. Cross-check the Fix Pack against hotfixes
  • Compare the list of SPRs addressed by the Fix Pack against the SPRs addressed by your hotfixes. In many cases, the Fix Pack will provide the same solutions as the hotfixes. If you have hotfixes that are not in 6.5.6 FP3, the Domino Administrator must assess the relative importance of applied hotfixes versus applying a new Fix Pack. Hotfixes for 6.5.6, 6.5.6 FP1 or 6.5.6 FP2 may not be applied to 6.5.6 FP3.
  • In cases where a previous hotfix is not included in a Fix Pack, you need to contact Lotus Support prior to installing 6.5.6 FP3 to request a new hotfix that can be applied on 6.5.6 FP3.
  • When it is time to install 6.5.6 FP3, proceed with "Install 6.5.6 Fix Pack 3".
