You can install Fixpacks on existing IBM® MQ for HPE NonStop V8.1 installations.
- 8.0.1. The base release 8.0.1. Sometimes numbered 22.214.171.124
- 126.96.36.199 The first Fixpack that installs on 8.0.1
- 188.8.131.52 The second Fixpack that installs on 8.0.1
- 184.108.40.206 The third Fixpack that installs on 8.0.1
Fixpacks are cumulative, for example, Fixpack 220.127.116.11 contains all of the fixes contained in prior Fixpacks 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124, and can be installed on any installation from 8.0.1(.0) through to 126.96.36.199. Fixpacks cannot be used to upgrade from earlier releases, that is, you cannot install Fixpack 188.8.131.52 on 184.108.40.206.
CD (continuous delivery) releases can be applied on top of Fixpacks, for example, 8.0.3 can be installed on top of 220.127.116.11, but 8.0.3 cannot be installed on top of 18.104.22.168. The same consideration applies to LTS (Long-term support) releases.
The 8.1.0(.0) release can be applied on top of release 22.214.171.124.
You can back out of Fixpack installations using the restore procedure, see Restore procedure.
