The TrueSight Capacity Optimization (TSCO), TrueSight Gateway Server (formerly, BMC Performance Assurance [BPA] console), TrueSight Capacity Optimization Agent, and TrueSight Capacity Optimization Perceiver (formerly BMC Performance Perceiver) products follow a standard patch release model where there will be a period formal patch release (Fix Pack/Cumulative Patch) made available via the Electronic Product Distribution (EPD) site and a more frequent Cumulative Hot Fix (CHF) release made available for the FTP site to faciliate a more rapid release of fixes to field without the overhead associated with a formal patch release.
The Fix Pack follows the same behavior as the former Cumulative Patch packages that have been made available for the last several releases. A Fix Pack can be installed on top of the base release of the product, any prior fix pack version in that release series, or any prior Cumulative Hot Fix (CHF). CHF packages will also accumulate fixes from the base release meaning they can also be installed on top of the base release of the product, any prior fix pack version, or any prior Cumulatve Hot Fix release. This means that all released patches are an accumulation of fixes from the base product release and thus can be installed on top of any prior released patch package already installed in the environment.
For BCO 9.5 and earlier when a Service Pack is released for CO that becomes the base supported release in that version. That means that future Cumulative Patches, Hot Fixes, or Cumulative Hot Fixes will only be released for the latest Service Pack. For example, after the release of CO 9.5 Service Pack 2 (9.5.02) future Cumulative Patches and Cumulative Hot Fixes will be released for installation on top of BCO 9.5.02. No more patches or hot fixes will be released that install on top of BCO 9.5 Service Pack 1 (9.0.01). In order to apply future patch packages it will be necessary to upgrade to a base release of BCO 9.5.02.
