5.0 Updating (Patching) BCC 1.2.1 on OES 2 SP2 Linux

In January 2010, a Novell Business Continuity Clustering (BCC) 1.2.1 patch for Novell Open Enterprise Server (OES) 2 SP2 Linux is available in the OES 2 SP2 Linux patch channel. This patch is necessary to run BCC on OES 2 SP2 Linux.

BCC administrators can use a rolling update approach to download and install the BCC 1.2.1 patch for each node in every peer cluster in the business continuity cluster. The BCC patch can be installed on a fully patched OES 2 SP2 Linux cluster, or it can be installed when the OES 2 SP2 Linux patches are applied in the cluster. Each of these update approaches are discussed in this section.
