Sun Cluster 3.2 Patch 2 Version Manager Requirement

Sun Cluster 3.2 Patch 2 requires the version manager command to commit patch changes after you apply any patch that contains a new protocol or changes a protocol. As a result, you must use the scversions command to apply Sun Cluster 3.2 Patch 2 and any subsequent patches. The scversions command determines if the new patch contains protocol changes that require a commit.

To download patches, go to http://sunsolve.sun.com.

Complete the following steps after you have applied a patch to all of your cluster nodes using any of the patch methods provided in the Patching Sun Cluster Software and Firmware chapter in the System Administration Guide.


  1. Check to see if you need to commit the patch software by using the scversions command.

    # /usr/cluster/bin/scversions

    You will see one of the following results:

    Upgrade commit is needed.
    Upgrade commit is NOT needed. All versions match.

  2. If a commit is needed, commit the patch software.

    # /usr/cluster/bin/scversions -c

    The -c option causes the cluster to commit to and run the new patched software.


Note: Running scversions will cause one or more Cluster Membership Monitor (CMM) reconfigurations, depending on the situation.

To download patches, go to http://sunsolve.sun.com.

You go to sunsolve and find the Sun Cluster 3.2 patch 2. When you do, let me know.

More likely, you will quit in disgust after 45 minutes of searching. Maybe you should have a look a the Red Hat Network, an easy to navigate update system.

James,

We're sorry, but we posted this blog prematurely. Sun Cluster 3.2 Patch 2 has not yet been released. That's why you can't find it.

It should be released soon. We'll post a notice here when it is.

Thanks for the follow up. Where is patch 1? Is it rolled into the current cluster download?

Posted by James on August 30, 2007 at 06:46 AM PDT #

James,

I think the patches you are looking for are the cluster core patches:

126106-01 S10 Sparc
126105-01 s9 sparc
126107-01 s10 x86

These are not rolled into the cluster download and you'll need to install them after you have upgraded to or installed Sun Cluster 3.2

You can find the patches at:

I have to agree - I have spent more then an hour looking for the SUN Cluster patch 2 for 3.2 to no avail. How hard would it be to have on the page where you down load the sun cluster software also the patches???? This is very frustrating!
But then I have said for many years "I hate the sun web site" I like to products - but the site needs less flash and glitz and more simple to naviage pages.
download -> Sun Cluster -> show all the versions -> select version -> show all software with PATCHES!!!! -> download now -> done
How hard can that be? Same goes for SAN software!!!
firmware download -> show all cards -> show all versions of Fware -> down load now -> done!!!!
