    Preinstall cleanup question

    user649511
      Version 2.18. We are runing the Do Setup step on "9.1-Apply patch 7303029". The text in the Wizard for this step states:
      .
      "Before applying 7303029, if you have applied any other patch previously in preinstall mode and do not intend to merge it with 12.1.1 upgrade driver u6678700.drv, clean-up the directory $APPL_TOP/admin/$TWO_TASK/preinstall after taking the backup of current directory.".
      .
      "This step will download patch 7303029 and clean-up the preinstall directory so that only 7303029 remains. It will also verify that the u67780700.drv driver is in the correct location and ready to be merged."
      .
      In reviewing the ad34009s.sh script it shows that all of the code that moved any contents of the preinstall folder to a backup folder has been removed (17-DEC-2010) so the text of what the step is going to do may be misleading.
      .
      Question: We applied 15 financials patches in preinstall mode on step "Check for critical pre-upgrade patches for Financials" and all of these drivers are in our preinstall folder. Should we leave these in the preinstall folder or not? Thanks!
