Hi Bert,


We would need to have a look at the verbose patch logs from /var/log/opsware/install_opsware. If you could, please upload both the patch and the contents verbose log files. You could also e-mail me the files if you don't want to share them on forum.

We figured this out.  We has to install the bootcert patch to our existing core server before going to 9.14.
