    Has anyone had any issues applying this from 9.1.0.3? I try to run the rpm -Uvh on the packages and they keep saying Failed dependencies on packages already installed

      Hi Tommy,

      hmm, maybe you need to stop NetWorker from running.
      I don´t think NetWorker has an upgrade installation path on Linux.
      What I see in the installation guide is removing the old package, then installing the new one, even if it was just a small update of hotfix!
