1. For HIPS 8.0 Patch 4, it is recommended to use the rollup hotfixes, instead of the original hotfixes you posted. For these two hotfixes, this specific order is required.
- HIPS 8.0 Patch 4
- Hotfix 981275
- Hotfix 952227
2. Usually hotfixes do not have a specific install order. When it is required, the documentation should state specifics, such as:
Looking at the list of hotfixes on this page below. How would I know that 981275 and 952227 are roll up hot fixes ? I can only use what is provided to me and the one's I posted are the only one's I have to use so far.
Even if I had the 2 that you mentioned, how do I have the ePO install them in the correct order ? Will the ePO do it on its own. I just have a client task that has all the systems check in once a day at night and repeats for 3 hours with a 15 minute break and it will check for patches and service packs. This way if there are many hotfixes I am checking in, the task will check many more times in that 3 hours and try to install them
Even if I had the 2 that you mentioned, how do I have the ePO install them in the correct order ?
For these hotfixes, it doesn't matter how you check them into ePO. Hotfix 981275 will only install if HIPS 8.0 Patch 4 (build 220.127.116.1119) is running; Hotfix 952227 will only install if HIPS 8.0 Patch 4 HF981275 (build 18.104.22.16882) is running.
If you tried to install HF952227 only on a HIPS 8 P4 system, it will fail repeatedly because the system is not running the minimum version.
See KB76593 (Section: Recommended Repository Check-in Procedure) for additional details in defining a deployment order, if necessary/desired.
