Uploading and Deploying Oracle Solaris 11 Files

Guest Author

I saw a question recently about uploading flat files, such as a config file, or tarballs to an Oracle Solaris 11 library and then deploy them to
Oracle Solaris 11 servers. This is an easy task for Oracle Solaris 8, 9, or 10, but it's trickier to find with Oracle Solaris 11.

Here are the steps to upload and deploy such files with Oracle Solaris 11 in Ops Center, using our software
library for the content.

  1. Create an Oracle Solaris 11 pkg which contains the config
    files. Here's an example for how to do so: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E23824_01/html/E21798/glcej.html
  2. Add that pkg to the repository. (The
    above example also covers this step.)
  3. Sync Ops Center with the repository so that the new pkg is
    added to Ops Center's catalog of software.
  4. Create an Ops Center Oracle Solaris 11 Profile that installs
    the pkg created in Step 1.
  5. Apply the profile in an update plan to the target systems.

For more information about OS Profiles, see the OS Updates chapter.

    Hi Owen,

    I appreciate you taking the time to share this information. I did see this option, but it's a little cumbersome for a task that is so very simple with Linux and earlier versions of Solaris. I also tried the uuencode/ops profile trick ( https://blogs.oracle.com/oem/entry/ops_center_using_operational_profiles ), which worked great but then all profiles pages were incredibly slow to load in Ops Center (12.2.2 JIDR). I'm assuming it tries to read each profile's content before listing them in the BUI. FYI - My encoded file was ~7MB.

    Are there any plans of introducing a simple local content option for Solaris 11? Worth raising an RFE?

    I'll look into this and get back to you.

    Sorry for being slow to respond.

    Yeah, if you don't feel like the current options are working efficiently for you, put in an RFE.
