Applying a Patch to MaxDB Install Media / DVD

Hi all

Is is possible to apply the latest patch to a MaxDB RDBMS DVD, e.g. I downloaded MaxDB_7.9_RDBMS___SP8_Build_21_ (the latest official DVD release) and would like to apply maxdb-server-linux-64bit-x86_64-7_9_08_38 during or before installation with sapinst.

This is important as I'd like to Backup-Restore a MaxDB to a different host and the system copy guide says the target Version should be at least equal to the source release (incl. Patch Version).

If the only possibility to achieve this is to copy/rename (install media is capital letters) the files on by one - how can I merge the Client and Server Patch packages (maxdb-as_runtime-linux-64bit-x86_64-7_9_08_38 and maxdb-server-linux-64bit-x86_64-7_9_08_38) into one MaxDB Install Media?
