Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3 3/13 Update2 patches

The Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3 3/13 Update2 is released. Click here for further information.

The package versions of the Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3 3/13 Update2 are the same for the core framework and the agents as for Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3 or Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3 05/11 Update1. Therefore it's possible to patch up an existing Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3 or 3.3u1. But Oracle Solaris 10 8/11 Update10 is a minimum requirement for Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3 3/13 Update2.

The package versions of the Oracle Solaris Cluster Geographic Edition 3.3 3/13 Update2 are NOT the same as Oracle Solaris Cluster Geographic Edition 3.3 or 3.3u1. But it's possible to upgrade the Geographic Edition without interruption of the service. See upgrade documentation for details.

The following patches (with the mentioned revision) are included/updated in Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3 3/13 Update2 release. If these patches are installed on Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3 or higher release, then the features for framework & agents are identical with Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3 3/13 Update2. It's always necessary to read the "Special Install Instructions of the patch" but I made a 'note' behind some patches where it's very important to read the "Special Install Instructions of the patch" (I'm using the shortcut SIIOTP in this blog).

The Solaris Cluster quorum server is an alternative to the traditional quorum disk. The quorum server is outside of the Oracle Solaris Cluster and will be accessed through the public network. Therefore the quorum server can be a different architecture.
Note: The Solaris Cluster quorum server software is only required on the quorum server and NOT on the Solaris Cluster nodes which are using the quorum server.

Included/updated patch revisions in Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3 3/13 Update2 for quorum server feature:
x 146089-06 Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3: Quorum Server patch for Oracle Solaris 10
x 150049-01 Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3: Quorum Man Pages Patch for Oracle Solaris 10
x 146090-06 Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3: Quorum Server patch for Oracle Solaris 10_x86
x 150050-01 Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3: Quorum Man Pages Patch for Oracle Solaris 10_x86


Beware of the "Install Requirements" of the Oracle Solaris Cluster Framework patches.
Further details refer to Overview of Patching Oracle Solaris Cluster in Oracle Solaris Cluster System Administration Guide 3.3 3/13

The premier support for Sun Cluster 3.1 ended

In October 2011 the premier support for Sun Cluster 3.1 ended. See details in Oracle Lifetime Support Policy for Oracle and Sun System Software document. There no 'Extended Support' and the 'Sustaining Support Ends' is indefinite.

But for indefinite 'Sustaining Support' I like to point out from the mentioned document (version Sept. 2011) on page 5:

Sustaining Support does NOT include:
* New program updates, fixes, security alerts, general maintenance releases, selected functionality releases and documentation updates or upgrade tools
* Certification with most new third-party products/versions and most new Oracle products
* 24 hour commitment and response guidelines for Severity 1 service requests
*Previously released fixes or updates that Oracle no longer supports

This means Solaris 10 9/10 update9 is the last qualified release for Sun Cluster 3.1. So, Sun Cluster 3.1 is not qualified on Solaris 10 8/11 Update10. Furthermore there is an issue around with SVM patch 145899-06 or higher. This SVM patch is part of Solaris 10 8/11 Update10. The 145899-06 is the first released patch of this number, therefore the support for Sun Cluster 3.1 ends with the previous SVM patches 144622-01 and 139967-02. For details about the known problem with SVM patch 145899-06 please refer to doc 1378828.1.

Further this means you should freeze (no patching, no upgrade) your Sun Cluster 3.1 configuration not later than Solaris 10 9/10 update9. Or even better plan an upgrade to Solaris Cluster 3.3 now to get back to full support.

For general patch updates the 'Critical Patch Update July 2011 for Solaris 10 SPARC' is last working and supported for Sun Cluster 3.1.
