  1. Hi, if the patch 31281355 is not found on the other node 2. Will it not cause a problem for the missing patch in the racnode2 with node 1? If so, should the patch be installed manually, right?


    1. thanks Jay for your information. You are right. I have just updated and linked another blog to cover the mentioned issue. And also linked yours as great reference if you don’t mind.
