Patch number needed for 8.1.6 to 8.17 upgrade on HP Tru64

I want to upgrade from 8.1.6 to 8.1.7 on HP Tru64 OS. What patch number should I apply for the upgrade?
The upgrade is not delivered as a patch. You'll need to obtain the 8.1.7 base release which you can request from Oracle Support if you have a support contract. If you don't have at least upgrade support, you're not entitled to upgrades.

When you upgrade, you can upgrade directly to the latest patchset (i.e. directly from 8.1.6.x to 8.1.7.4) by following the instructions in Metalink note 188061.1: Upgrading Directly to an 8.1.7 Patch Set.
