So you'll have to patch the old system to same level as new system. Basically as a starting point the Kernel Patches will need to be identical, ie 118833-36 on both systems, 118833-33 was the Ku in u3, but rev 36 was the only Ku released that will satisfy this. So both systems will need 118833-36.
Make sure to install the latest rev of patch utils before any patching operation ( 119254/119255 ) Enda Enda _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list email@example.com
