Error while Installing the patch 111679-14

Hi All

I am Installing the patch 111679 for Forte 6 update 2

But While Installing the patch I got the Following error Message
# patchadd -d 111679-14

Checking installed patches...
Verifying sufficient filesystem capacity (dry run method)...
Installing patch packages...

Patch number 111679-14 has been successfully installed.
See /var/sadm/patch/111679-14/log for details

Patch packages installed:
  SPROcc

Then I viewed the /var/sadm/patch/111679-14/log as below

# more /var/sadm/patch/111679-14/log

This appears to be an attempt to install the same architecture and
version of a package which is already installed.  This installation
will attempt to overwrite this package.

Dryrun complete.
No changes were made to the system.

This appears to be an attempt to install the same architecture and
version of a package which is already installed.  This installation

Installation of <SPROcc> was successful.
#
The  Log is ponting that it is trying to install SPROcc again .
But what I understand was that patch 111679-14 patches SPROcc and not install it.
PAtches only patch a particular Package and not install any package.
Please coorect me if I am not interpreting the log file properly.

A patch may replace an entire package, or just part of it, so that log entry doesn't mean that there's any errors.

everything is fine with your patch....

a patch is "overinstalling" packages, or certain files in packages so that the errornous files are being replaced. So basically the messages you see are fine.
