Solaris 10 patching

Today, I stumbled over this training:

WS-2700-S10 Solaris 10 Patching Best Practices

And - surprise surprise: It is for free.

You will experience SAM the system administrator and his adventures - the look alike may be a little bit childish, but on the other hand it is a nice idea, entertaining, and easy to understand.
However, the information given there are helpful and it reminds us again why we should follow Sun's recommendation and best practices for patching our system and patching zones.

Take a look!
Helpful links are also:

Patch corner
Zones paralell patching versus update-on-attach
patchinp pre-flight tool (ppc) to check and analyze patching issues prior to the planned patching sessions. With ppc, admins are able to avoid surprises during the patch session.
And learn more about the improvements of Solaris 10 Recommended and Sun Alert patch clusters .
