SUMMARY: Q: Sun's DiskSuite: Have to patch client programs (df, tar,...)?

The question was (kind of):
Do you install all patched programs provided with ODS on all clients?

I have reveived few answers only. Either few people are using Sun's
Online DiskSuite (ODS), or my Subject was too boring ;-). However, it
seems to be usual practice to install the patched programs (provided
with ODS) on all clients that mount filesystems of meta-disk partitions.
Patched programs seem to be necessary only if you create partitions
larger than 2 GBytes.

Note also, that SunOS 4.1 and 4.1.1 need kernel changes, whereas 4.1.2
and 4.1.3 already have them included (Dunno about SunOS 5.x).
