Solaris 10 kernel patches

This is a short overview of Solaris 10 kernel patches. The table show which kernel patch revision is included in the Solaris 10 Update releases and there patch dependencies. Install the kernel patch of a Solaris 10 update release is not the same as do an upgrade to the Solaris 10 update release. Sometimes is advisable to do an upgrade from an Solaris 10 update release to a higher Solaris 10 update release. There is not a general rule but when it is necessary to jump over some Solaris 10 update releases then a upgrade is advisable. The list is sorted from newest to oldest...

Please refer to My Oracle Support. In the Patches & Updates Tab you can find Solaris 9 patches and any other patches.

What is the latest security patch released by Oracle for Solaris 7?

Posted by guest on November 27, 2013 at 06:37 PM CET #

Do you really run Solaris 7? The last kernel update patch was 106541-44 and the last update of this patch was in December 2006.

Hi, there is an interesting sentence in the opening paragraph
"Install the kernel patch of a Solaris 10 update release is not the same as do an upgrade to the Solaris 10 update release"

Could you expand on this more? I was under the impression that kernel updates were stand alone, i'm interested because a colleague has been advised to do a OS upgrade from disk to a specific update level (sol10 u11) instead of patching to the update level, he has been advised that this is a prerequisite to upgrading Solaris cluster 3.2 to Solaris cluster 3.3, I’m just trying to figure out a good explanation of why the upgrade is needed over patching?

Posted by guest on January 19, 2015 at 12:52 PM CET #

Solaris Cluster has its own requirements for Solaris 10 update releases. Details which Solaris update releases are qualified with specific Solaris Cluster releases are available in doc: "Solaris Cluster 3.x: Supported Solaris OS Releases/Versions (Doc ID 1004838.1)" in My Oracle Support. The upgrade to a Solaris update release include more than the single kernel patch. And qualifications are done against Solaris update releases and not against single patches. Hth, Juergen

Thank you that does explain the differences, one final question.

If a patch bundle is installed (including the Kernel patch), is this the equivilent of an upgrade from CD?

Posted by guest on January 19, 2015 at 02:35 PM CET #

Unfortunately, no. Also a patch bundle does not deliver the same as the upgrade to a specific Solaris update release.

Posted by Juergen on January 19, 2015 at 04:43 PM CET #

Thankyou Juergen, that fully explains it for me, I very much appreciate you taking the time to answer.

I'm still mostly blogging around Solaris Cluster and support. Independently if for Sun Microsystems or Oracle. :-)
