Solaris 10 SPARC Recommended Patch Cluster for  2008 quarter 3 version

Dear All,
Could any one please guide me, where I can download "Solaris 10 SPARC Recommended Patch Cluster" for 2008 quarter 3 version.
I have checked in sunsolve.sun.com, I'm able to find only the latest release.
please guide me.
Thanks and regards,
veera

Ok,
Here's a cute little formula to try using your systems parameters to gain some "head's-up" on an expected or estimated time to complete the patch run.
You will need a few things to prepare.
Number of "real" CPU's (not hyperthreads)
Speed of each CPU as a whole number i.e 2.87Ghz = 2,867
the total number of patches from the cluster i.e. Sept 15th = 381 (Solaris 10)
Network factor if using NFS = 2.5
local cluster file factor = 1.5
Patch cluster on CDROM factor = 3.25
Now, combine all of those elements in this equation:
{ ( #1 * #2 ) / #3 * factor(#4 or #5 or #6) }
This will yield a number in minutes of patch run time. Then all you will need to add is the standard boot up time to get the total of all patching and reboot.
Of course you could write a script to extract all of this information and feed it to "bc -l" to get a quick figure.
Example, on one of my Solaris 10 boxes with the information filled in to the equation:
#> echo "((4*2660)/381)*1.5"|bc -l
#> 41.88976377952755905511
It actually took 44.2 minutes to complete the patching of this box plus another 12 minutes to reboot. But all in all a pretty fair estimate I think.

  • MB.ACT light OFF --- after Solaris 9 recommended patch cluster applied

    After applying the recommended patch cluster to several SunFire V210s/V240s the "system ready" or "activity" light on the front panel no longer illuminates. The systems come up fine and are fully functional, just no light.
    While this has absolutely no impact on usability it is a bit disconcerting for the folks in the server room when glancing at the rack and not seeing the typical green light.
    I first noticed the problem in mid 2007 and have tried patch clusters as recent as last month, but the light remains out.
    One interesting discovery is that if I reset (hard) the ALOM module the light comes back on. However, if the system is subsequently rebooted for any reason the light does not come back on...
    If anyone can shed some light on the issue I would greatly appreciate it!

    continued.
    I removed patch 138217-01 (svccfg & svcprop patch) and re-applied it.
    Then, after booting into S-mode, I tried to continue with the broken patch 139555-08 (kernel).
    It ends with

  • How to backout a Recommended Patch cluster deployment in Solstice disksuite

    Hello Admin's,
    I am planning to use the following Plan of action for deploying the latest Solaris 8 Recommended Patch cluster on the production server's i support.My
    concern is if the patching activity fails or the application and Oracle databases dont come up after deploying the patch cluster.How do i revert back to system to its original state using the submirror's which i have detached prior to patching the system :
    1) Will shutdown the applications and the databases on the server:
    2) Will capture the output of the following commands :
    df -k
    ifconfig -a
    contents of the files /etc/passwd /etc/shadow /etc/vfstab /etc/system
    metastat -p
    netstat -rn
    prtvtoc /dev/rdsk/c1t0d0s0
    prtvtoc /dev/rdsk/c1t1d0s0
    3) We bring the system to the ok prompt
    4) We will try to boot the system from both the disk's which are part of the d10 metadevice for root filesystem

    Recommended patch sets are and to the best of my knowledge have always been regenerated twice a month.
    I think your thinking of maintenance releases. When they generate a new CD image which can be used to do an upgrade install.
    They try to generate those every 6 months, but the schedule often slips.
    The two most recent were sol10 11/06 and sol10 8/07.

  • Management console problem after installing recommended patch cluster

    Hello everyone.
    I just got a new SUN 440 server, it didn't come with the solaris os installed and so I installed solaris 9 12/03 to it. The installation went fine and I could start the management console with no problems at all. Then I went to sunsolve.sun.com to download the latest recommended patch clusters for solaris 9 (this was yesterday Sept.-06-2006), I downloaded the file, checked it with md5sum, unzipped it, went to single user mode and ran the install_patch script. After the patch cluster finished installing I rebooted the server for the patches to take effect, I logged in, tried to run console management 2.1 and it starts OK but I cannot use any services it offers because it says (in the console events):
    "Server Not Running: no solaris management console server was available on the specified server. Please ensure there is a Solaris Management Console server available on the specified host and that it is running"
    When I click on "See Exception" I get (for a particular service that is... in this case com.sun.admin.fsmgr.client.VFsMgr - for managing file systems):
    java.rmi.RemoteException: Server RMI is null:
    at sun.com.management.viperimpl.client.ViperClient.lookupServer(ViperClient.java:376)and so on...
    I already checked that the service is running on port 898 and it seems that there is no other app. using that same port. I also restarted the service using /etc/init.d.init stop/status/start but I get the same results.
    I don't know solaris very much and don't know what else to do, please help.
    Thanks in advance.

    Well, I guess what you see isn't what you get.
    Guess I'm used to the fact USENET just left things formatted the way they were :-O

  • Problem: installing Recommend Patch Cluster: patch 140900-10 fails

    I don't know if this is correct location for this thread (admin/moderator move as required).
    We have a number of Solaris x86 hosts (ie 4) and I'm trying to get the patched and up to date.
    I obtained the latest Recommended Patch Cluster (dated 28Sep2010).
    I installed it on host A yesterday, 2 hours 9 mins, no problems.
    I tried to install it on host B today, and that was just a critical failure.
    Host B failed to install 140900-01, because the non global zones rejected the patch because dependancy 138218-01 wasn't installed in the non global zones.
    Looking closer, it appears that 138218-01 is for global zone installation only; so it makes sense that the non global zones rejected it.
    However, both hosts were in single user mode when installing the cluster and both hosts have non global zones.
    140900-01 installed on host A with log:
    | This appears to be an attempt to install the same architecture and
    | version of a package which is already installed. This installation

    It looks as if the patch strategy is completely different for the two hosts; both are solaris x86 (A is a V40z; B is a V20z).
    Trying to use "-G" with patchadd crabs the patch is for global zones only and stops (ie it's almost as if it thinks installation is being attempted in a non global zone).
    Without "-G" same behavior as patch cluster install attempt (no surprise there).
    I have inherited this machines; I am told each of these machines were upgraded to Solaris 10u6 in June 2009.
    Other than the 4-5 months it took oracle to get our update entitlement to us, we've had no problems.
    I'm at a loss here, I don't see anyone else having this type of issue.
    Can someone point the way...?
    What am I missing...?

    Well, I guess what you see isn't what you get.

  • Solaris 2.6 Patch cluster

    Is there anyone out there knows where I can get the last Solaris 2.6 patch cluster? I know it's de-supported now but sadly some legacy applications are still out there and need to run on old software/hardware.
    Many thanks in advance,
    Jonathan

    if you run a pstack against the core, I might
    recognize the failure. Usually, logging is of no
    use, as we don't log a crash. . .Thanks. I'll do that. It just generated a new core file.

    I don't know of any problems with installing 4.15p7,
    nor of installing later hotfixes on top of it, and
    I've been supporting Messaging Server since 4.0 came
    out. . . .
    If you've had file permission issues since 4.05,
    that's truly news to me, unless it was that pesky
    problem with Admin Server, where it would change the
    permissions of the logs when it went to roll them
    over. I don't remember when we fixed that one, but
    we did..We've had file permission issues with the patches since 4.0. When we'd upgrade some of the files would be owned by root and not exec'able by nobody. Some of the patches would fail when the patch process would try to bind to the directory (I don't know why). We've used NMS since the 3.x version. It has also been a long time since we tried to patch to app because our experience was bad. It was stable for a long time (once we disabled shared folders and resolved the nscd issue).

  • Solaris 8 x86 patch cluster installation

    hi. i recently installed solaris 8 x86 on my intel p4 machine. i got through the installation fine but i am now running into problems with installing the 8x86 recommended patch cluster.
    whenever i run the install_cluster script, it says every patch failed to install due to return code 1. i even tried manually installing the patches manually via patchadd...but i end up getting a message saying the patch directory is not valid.
    i basically downloaded the 8x86 recommended patch cluster zip file on a windows 2k machine. i unzip the file and then burn the patches onto a cd. i then copy the patches from the cd onto my solaris machine and try to install the patches that way. so far...this doesn't work..and i dont know what im doing wrong.
    does anyone know how to fix this problem? thx.

    hi again. i just fixed my problem. apparently when i unzipped the file and then burned it onto cd...the data got corrupted. i fixed it by copying the zip file onto cd and then extracting the patches onto the solaris machine.

  • Performace problem in oracle DB after Solaris 10 recommended patching

    Dear All,
    We are facing some performance problems in our oracle DB qerries and reports recently. We applied Solaris 10 recommended patchset on april 24th. Our monthly report generation acitivity is now running for last 3 days i.e may 11,12,13 and application team is complaining of degraded performance. I can see that the cpu usage on the server is about 100% during the report generation , but everything else is fine. Free memory is 15gb , all mountpoints are under 80% and there is no other hardware issue as well.
    Now app team is suspecting that last month patching could be the cause of the problem, because till last month they were performing this activity without having a performance degradtion.
    I just need to be sure that solaris 10 recommended patches are not causing this issue. Any of you ever faced such an issue after patch installation ?
    The server is V490 with 8 cpu / 32gb RAM. Any hints will be appreciated ?
    Thanks in Advance.

  • Problem install Recommended Patch cluster

    Trying to install the Recommended patch cluster on Ultra 45s, on each one, the 40th patch, 120272-28, fails, and I don't understand why. Here's the snippet from the log:
    STARTING : application of 120272-28
    start time : 2010.11.30 08:41:42
    # /usr/sbin/patchadd 120272-28

    Done!

    Done!
    The following requested patches have packages not installed on the system
    Package SUNWsmaS from directory SUNWsmaS in patch 120272-28 is not installed on the system. Changes for package SUNWsmaS will not be applied to the system.
    Checking patches that you specified for installation.
    Done!
    The following requested patches will not be installed because
    they are incompatible with patches already installed or with
    other patches that you have specified for installation. In order to install these
    requested patches you should resolve this incompatibility
    by removing incompatible patches from requested-to-install set
    or from the system.
    0 Patch 120272-28 is declared as incompatible by IDR138540-01, which has already been installed on the system.
    No patches to install.
    patchadd exit code : 3

    finish time : 2010.11.30 08:41:42
    FINISHED : application of 120272-28
    I don't understand why it fails, rather than just being "skipped", as several other patches are. I assume the failure isn't coming from the fact that it's been declared incompatible, but rather the "unhandled subprocess exit status". How do I determine what that is?
    Or, better yet, how do I tell the installcluster script to just not do that one?
    Thanks!

    did you try and removed the IDR? I.e: patchrm IDR138540-01 ?

  • Recommended patch cluster release

    Hello,
    How often is the Recommended Patch cluster released?
    A Couple of years ago, i was told at a Sun event during a session, that changes has been made en the way patch cluster was created, and that the patch clusters was created 4 times a year, to make it more streamlike, instead of creating patchclusters once in a while, when enough patches has been created. I need to know if it still works the way, that patch cluster are created 4 times a year, it is to be used with patch procedures and recommendations.
    Best regards
    Yngve Berthelsen

    Recommended patch sets are and to the best of my knowledge have always been regenerated twice a month.
    I think your thinking of maintenance releases. When they generate a new CD image which can be used to do an upgrade install.
    They try to generate those every 6 months, but the schedule often slips.
    The two most recent were sol10 11/06 and sol10 8/07.

  • Where to find previous Solaris 9 Recommend patch ?

    Hi:
    Is it possible to find the specific version of sun Solaris 9 Recommend patch? As I know, sun keep on upgrade the it on the WEB site. But I need to find out some old version.

    I believe older patches are not deleted from the web site, so you can download any revision of the patch you need. Check out http://sunsolve.sun.com/pub-cgi/show.pl?target=patchpage

  • SPARC10 not booting after 2.5.1 Recommended Patch Cluster Install

    Hi everyone,
    Just finished installing the "latest" patch cluster on my ancient SPARC10, and now it doesn't boot. Here's what I see:
    ok boot /iommu/sbus/espdma&#64;f,400000/esp&#64;f,800000/sd&#64;0,0
    screen not found.
    Can't open input device.

    Type help for more information
    ok
    At first I thought I had a RAM problem. I've swapped RAM, but that didn't make it boot. I then thought I had a system board problem. I've swapped that as well, and still no dice. I wish I'd have kept the list of patches that successfully installed like my gut told me to, but I didn't. Searching Google and the Sun websites didn't turn up any fixes to the problem, so I'm hoping I can find help here.
    Did the patches clobber something the machine needs to boot? I believe the OS disks are mirrored, and I've tried booting off each submirror, but the result is the same.
    If I can avoid booting off of CD-ROM, that would be ideal since I don't have an external CD-ROM available to boot from.
    Thanks for any help!

    Ouch !
    Haven't seen that one in years !
    It's your choice of that ancient Operating Environment, combined with a cpu faster than 419MHz.
    I hope you still have the extra OECD disk that was packed with that system when it was first shipped from Sun.
    Otherwise you may just be out of luck with using Solaris 2.5.1
