    How to identify which Patch is installed

    Windows only
    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:


    Unix and Linux

    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 or the "strings" command for Linux. For example, to display the identification string for this Patch on UNIX, type:

    %what $AIMSHOME/Metadata/Z3950Connector/Z3950Connector.jar | grep QFE
