HP Network Automation (HPNA) 9.10.02 Installed and Tested !!

Just today on Jan 9th, 2012, HP released patch for HP Network Automation - 9.10. The patch version is HPNA 9.10.02. [The HPNA 9.10.01 patch release on July 27th, 2011. After 5 months, HP released this second patch for NA 9.10, which is little early on their patching cycle. :)]

But for me, it always extreme happy to play, install and test the newly release patch version. And this time, I might be first person to play, install and test it :) Today started to play with it in my VMs.

My VMs Configuration Details: 
- 2 Oracle VMs:
RAM : 10GB
Hard Disk : 100GB
Oracle Version : Oracle 11g ( Standard Edition
OS : RHEL 5 (64Bit)
-2 Core VMs:

RAM : 10GB
Hard Disk : 100GB
OS : RHEL 5 (64Bit)

* Upgrade of a standalone HPNA core's is very simple and easy. The patch install smooth without any issue as normal.

* Upgrade of a mesh HPNA core installation, also simple but little bit of additional patience and bit careful because of the Oracle RAC Cluster's replication.

As usual, here is my HPNA 9.10.02 Core's Version Page :)

After patching, I tested a few HPNA functions, it worked as expected. :) Nothing much to complaint or log a case with HP Support.

The following 45 important/major bugs that are fixed in the HPSA 9.10.02 version :
