    You should see the following:

    Verifying archive integrity... All good. Uncompressing TKGrid........... running TKGrid/bin2/hfInstall TKGrid /install TKGrid HotFix Configuration Utility. Running on '' Using stdin for options. Shared install or replicate to each node? (Y=SHARED/n=replicated)

  3. Check with your grid install team to determine if the existing grid software was deployed using a replicated or shared approach. Answer the question accordingly and proceed with the grid software update. If necessary, respond with YES to confirm the software update on all of the other grid nodes.

    The updated shared libraries will be located in the /install/TKGrid/lib2 folder (or libN where N is the version number for the hot fix update).
    If necessary, the permissions on the /install/TKGrid folder for all grid nodes may need to be updated for group read/write permissions.
