    As SAP customer you can see and download the patch bundle applicable to your h/w and OS platform.

    A patch bundle has a set of files including

    - manifest (list) of files,

    - a file about bug fixes and CRs done and

    - a file with steps to install.

    Typically

    If it is a cumulative patch (i.e everything included up to that point) then the steps to patch are same as a new install.

    If it is incremental (rare ones or 1-offs) then a prior installation is expected.

    As a safety measure before I apply the patch I would

    - take full database backup of all user and system databases (excluding tempdb though)

    - after shutting down the server take a cold file level back up of ASE install folder

    Then apply the patch.

    Restart the data server and backup server.

    run the "install" set of scripts

    Run the dbcc upgrade object for user databases

    Watch out for errors in the ASE and SYB_BACKUP error logs and fix them.
