How to identify which Patch is installed


    UNIX

    Any modified UNIX executables (or libraries) being sent out as part of a Patch will return the unique identification number for that fix when checked with the "what" command for UNIX and the "strings" command for Linux. For example, to display the identification string for this Patch on UNIX, type:

      %what gsrvr.static | grep QFE

      QFE-SDE-90-CQ00291858

    Windows

    To check for the presence of a Patch, for each file examine the unique identification information provided (right click, properties, version tab, item name, QFE Version). With only a few exceptions, all files modified as part of a Patch distribution can be uniquely identified in this manner. The identification string for this Patch should read:

      QFE-SDE-90-CQ00291858
