SUMMARY OF INCIDENTS FIXED BY THE PATCH
---------------------------------------
Patch ID: 7.3.1.100
* 3945461 (3945456) When performing an upgrade from InfoScale 7.3 to 7.3.1.xxx, CPI installs the packages from the 7.3.1.xxx patch only and does not install the base packages of 7.3.1 GA.


DETAILS OF INCIDENTS FIXED BY THE PATCH
---------------------------------------
This patch fixes the following incidents:

Patch ID: 7.3.1.100

* 3945461 (Tracking ID: 3945456)

SYMPTOM:
CPI assumes that the third digit in an InfoScale 7.3.1 version indicates a patch release, and not a GA release. It then upgrades the packages from the patch only and does not upgrade the base packages.

DESCRIPTION:
To compare release versions and set the type of installation, CPI compares the currently installed release version with the target release version to be installed. However, instead of considering all the digits in a release version, it incorrectly compares only the first two digits. In this case, CPI compares 7.3 with 7.3.1, and finds that the first 2 digits match exactly. Thus, it assumes that the base release is already installed and so it only installs the patch packages.

RESOLUTION:
This hotfix updates the CPI to recognize InfoScale 7.3.1 as a higher release and 7.3.1.100 (for example) as a patch release. CPI can now properly upgrade the base packages first and then proceed to upgrade the packages that are in the patch.
