Applying arbitrary patches using Ops Center
By Gerry Haskins-Oracle on Sep 05, 2011
I asked my colleague, Juergen Fleischer, to let me know how to apply arbitrary patches - i.e. any specific patches you want to apply - using Ops Center.
Here's his response on how to do it:
Create a Custom Profile by selecting the desired patches. The Profile can get used for Compliance Reports or standard jobs to install these patches.
Here are the steps:
1) Select Plan Management -> Update Profiles
2) Select Action "New Profile" and name it appropiate e.g. "Solaris Cluster 3.1 APR-2011"
3) Select all required patches e.g. 120500-27 for SPARC and/or 120501-27 for x86 and save the Profile:
4) Use the Profile for plain Jobs, Reports, etc.
