Release Date: February 2005
Before installing this patch you must already have nmake release lu3.6 installed. If you already have a valid license for lu3.6 you do not need a new license to use this patch. For any license requests please contact the Bell Labs Licensing Team.
This is a cumulative patch and includes patch levels 04, 03, 02 and 01. If patch 01, 02 and/or 03 is already installed, the same files from patch 04 will not be re-installed, only the new or modified patch 04 files will be installed. If patch 01, 02 or 03 is not installed then all files from patch 03 will be installed.
This patch is to be applied to an existing nmake lu3.6 based installation (lu3.6, lu3.6-p01, lu3.6-p02 or lu3.6-p03). All current lu3.6 nmake users are entitled to download and install this patch -- a new license is not needed to use the patch. If you do not have version lu3.6 installed then you should not install this patch.
This patch will replace several files in your lu3.6 node (details are below). Any file to be replaced will first be backed up so it may be recovered if necessary.
This patch contains the following components (found under the update/ subdirectory):
bin/nmake(patch 04, 03, 02)

For changes introduced in patch 03 see the lu3.6-p03 release notes.

An install script is used to apply the patch. All actions performed by the install script are logged to file install.log. If the install script is executed more than once each instance will be recorded in the log file. The install script also provides a rollback feature to uninstall the patch and return the lu3.6 node to its previous state.
We recommend installing this patch while no one is running the nmake command. Use the following steps to install the patch.
$ cd <nmake_root>

installed the script will ask if you would like to restore the original
files or reinstall the patch. The restore option is only available
after the patch has been successfully installed.
