Can someone please clarify the v11.52 Patch 2 install instructions.
I heard if the base install is v11.5 there is a different process.

You are correct, if you initially installed v11.5 and then applied v11.5 Patch SP2 to get to v11.52.

You will need to uninstall v11.5 and reinstall the full version of v11.52 and then install v11.52 Patch 2 to get current.

No wonder I am confused, why can't we just uninstall the most recent patch and install the new one as usual????? Why did HP change the process?

I cannot speak to the why, the process is what it is. I guess this is another pitfall of being an early adopter. No different than any other software vendor.

Thanks Sammy, I guess this doesn't appear to be too difficult.
