Applying the latest Solaris patches using Ops Center Enterprise Manager
By Gerry Haskins-Oracle on Aug 11, 2011
A couple of customers have claimed to me that it's not possible to apply all the latest available Solaris patches using Ops Center Enterprise Manager. I've checked with my colleagues in Ops Center, and it most certainly is possible. Here's one way to do it:
There are multiple ways to perform this task ...
Here is one using the "Report" feature:
1) Select "Host Compliance Report"
2) Use the default setting "Security and Bug fixes" and select proposed target system or group of targets:
3) The Report will show all downrev packages (e.g 824 pkgs) and will allow you to submit a job, that's all that's needed.
Looking at the Job log we can see:
# tail /var/scn/update-agent/logs/resolve.log
add 40025552 (145497-01)
add 40025545 (144998-03)
add 40025534 (145501-01)
add 40025472 (118712-24)
add 40025471 (121734-13)
add 40025380 (118777-17)
add 40024414 (125060-07)
add 40022356 (119788-10)
add 40015326 (121081-08)
Total number of sorted operations : 197
So in total we would install 197 patches.
