How to upgrade quickly your Solaris 11 to the latest SRUs ? (Support Repository Update)
Requirement: Make sure you have access to the support repository https://pkg.oracle.com/solaris/support.
You may need a valid support contract. You might have to do reboot the system from 1 to 3 times.
Note: I wrote this doc because I needed to get the latest Samba package 3.6.6 installed. (Repository of the DEV tree)

Hey guys, If you don't have the user account to access to the Redhat network (RHN), you can fetch the source product from : http://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/updates/enterprise/
and compile the product by yourself then make the installation.
Also from this folder http://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/updates/ you can update (following same idea) most of the Redhat Distros.
Of course this idea is perfect for a single package...
What is the Redhat Network ?
It's the single way to download and update your RHEL Distro.
You can download new ISOs, new packages, or use the "up2date" command to update/upgrade your installed operating system.
Note: ISOs and the pre-compiled packages are not available to the public.
This is a comercial product and you'll only have access to the Redhat products by using an official account (eg. licence).
See http://www.redhat.com/software/rhn/ to get an overview about the Redhat Network.
