Technology Validation Utility

In the process of upgrading from 11.5.8 (new install on aix) to 11.5.9 I had to install and run the Technology Validation Utility to make sure that I have the minimum requirements. (metalink note 240744.1)

The utility says

Install this patch
install that patch
this fails
this warning
install this patch

DO NOT proceed with the next steps until you have ALLPASS in the summary

I TRIED to install the patches and guess what... Oracle thinks (on the left hand) that I am lacking and at the same time (on the right hand) that at least the first three things that I am "lacking" in have already been installed.


Itar Thursday

apparently we were the only ones on the planet working Friday

WIP today

I need to know if anyone else has had this nifty utility tell them one thing and the patches tell them something else and if I should believe one over the other. Analyst is WIPing for over 2 days and I sit here with my thumb up my... whatever... trying to figure out what to do.
