It only takes a minute to sign up. So far, all the potential Solaris patch download sites that Google returns all redirect to the My Oracle Support portal. I signed up for that, but now I need an "Oracle Support Identifier".
Most customers have only one Support ID. Your Support ID is included in the welcome letter sent from Oracle. This is a number similar to that defines for Oracle the products you have licensed for support.
Am I out of luck regarding getting it updated? If so, you should have OS support as well. Sign up to join this community. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top.

I have a Solaris 10 server. Kevin Dick Dick 41 1 1 silver badge 3 3 bronze badges. What revision of Solaris are you running? If it was fixed in u4, then it should be present in u9 the current. If you aren't running u9 I would suggest upgrading to that first. I don't know how that translates to release version numbers. Uname also seems to be saying that it's release 5. SunOS hostname 5. Then I doubt you're running Solaris It looks more like Solaris Express.
Then yes, you're running an old Solaris Express development release. As far as I know patches were never made available for that. I highly recommend upgrading to a current release, either Solaris 10 update 9 or Solaris 11 Express. Active Oldest Votes. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Correct, it's not possible to get Solaris 10 patches with out a valid support contract. However it appears you don't need Solaris 10 patches since you're running Solaris Express.

Break the OS mirror in case we have to revoke so that we can apply update only on one disk Perform update process which one is the best way and its detailed steps.
Last edited by rbatte1; at PM. Join Date: Feb So why are you thinking of breaking the mirror? How is the machine usually backed up?
If so, surely it would be easier to simply restore the snapshot s if the upgrade goes wrong without messing with the mirroring.
Unless you have some other motive. Thanks hicksd8 for your reply. You're right, I will use ufsdump for the backup. But i thought I could break mirror in metadevice and then update the vfstab with direct partition device names so that I could boot with physical device instead of mirror md? For updating to u11, what is the best approach? Could I just apply latest or the one that matches update recommended patchset to get to the update?
My approach would be to ensure that you know how to restore the root partition easily if it goes wrong.
Use fssnap followed by ufsdump to dump the snapshot. If you are in anyway unsure about how to restore then research that first. As far as the actual upgrade is concerned I would download and burn the DVD installation media.
Booting from that DVD ensure that the install procedure recognizes the existing installation and offers you the upgrade route. DO NOT allow it to proceed with a standard installation overwriting the disk if it happens to not recognize the existing OS. If you hit problems with that post back here. And also Give yourself an easy recovery route. Join Date: Sep It's probably best to 1 unmount all filesystems which are not going to receive any upgraded bits and 2 take full back-ups of all filesystems as hicksd8 mentioned effected by the upgrade before upgrading.
Then, when the upgrade is done, you can remount all your "extra" filesystems. Find all posts by Neo. Thanks everyone.
I successfully upgraded to Update I did use fssnap and ufsdump which are very useful. Last edited by hicksd8; at AM. Solaris 11 to There were a total of 24 Solaris 10 patches, including kernel updates, and 4 patchsets released on MOS! Solaris 10 Extended Support will run thru January Those of you that have taken advantage of our previous Extended Support offerings for Solaris 8 and Solaris 9 will notice that we've changed things around a little with Solaris 10 Extended Support; previously we did not publish any updates to the Solaris 10 Recommended Patchsets during the Extended Support period.
This meant that the Recommended Patchsets remained available to all customers with Premier Operating Systems support, as all the patches the patchsets contained had Operating Systems entitlement requirements. Moving forward with Solaris 10 Extended Support, the decision has been made to continue to update the Recommended Patchsets thru the Solaris 10 Extended Support period.
This means customers that purchase Solaris 10 Extended Support get the benefit of continued Recommended Patchset updates, as patches that meet the criteria for inclusion in the patchsets are released. During the Solaris 10 Extended Support period, the updates to the Recommended Patchsets will contain patches that require a Solaris 10 Extended Support contract, so the Solaris 10 Recommended Patchsets will also require a Solaris 10 Extended Support contract during this period.

There is no direct upgrade installer or other tool that will allow you to upgrade from earlier releases of Solaris to Solaris This is primarily due to the vast changes in the packaging mechanism in Solaris You cannot use an installer to upgrade from Oracle Solaris 10 to Oracle Solaris You must perform a fresh installation of the Oracle Solaris 11 software by using one of the installation options that are described in this chapter.
In order to start using Solaris 11, it needs to be a clean install. Once installed, you can then decide what you want to do with your Solaris 10 host and the applications running on it. Thanks to the Solaris binary guarantee, provided your application is using documented interfaces, it should run without modification on Solaris 11, so you can manually transition your users, applications and data to Solaris 11 if you wish.
Alternatively, you can create a Solaris 10 non-global zone on your Solaris 11 host and install a flash archive of your original Solaris 10 host into the Solaris 10 non-global zone using the physical-to-virtual process. There is no support for Solaris 8 and 9 branded zones on Solaris 11 and you can't nest zones: ie you can't run Solaris 8 or 9 or even Solaris 10 native zones in a Solaris 10 zone on a Solaris 11 host.

We are planning to upgrade our Oracle There is a warning see below in Oracle support document "Requirements for Installing Oracle Database Does the warning mean we need to upgrade Solaris from Solaris 10 update 11 base image instead of thru kernel patch, or something else?
Applying a kernel patch or a Solaris patch bundle is not the equivalent to installing the specific Solaris 10 "update 11" image. There is a warning in Oracle support document see below.
What it means, is that they tested that product against that release, and thus you need that to be supported. Some COTS will catch this at install and stop, others will proceed. First, are you using live upgrade LU? If so, it's fairly easy to get the v10 U11 media and do a luupgrade to upgrade to U Even if LU is not currently in use, as long as you don't have a highly customized configuration, it's fairly easy to setup LU -- especially if you're using ZFS.
I used this method a few years back to move some v10 systems with older updates up to meet an 11g req.Follow up - Solaris 11.4 open beta 1 with Gnome 3 Desktop
