Goodbye SunSolve, Helloooo MOS!

As Miriam Brace's recent blog post signals, it's nearly time to say goodbye to SunSolve as the transition to My Oracle Support (MOS) continues.

There's syntax changes for 'wget' users which are detailed on SunSolve and copied on ISP.  This document includes details on how to continue to access the patch metadata files 'patchdiag.xref' and 'checksums'.

As per my previous posting, Oracle Sun patches and patch clusters/bundles are already available from MOS.

Expect to hear more news on the migration, including timelines, in the near future.  SunSolve and Miriam's blog are good sources of up to date information.

Comments:

What about the Sun System Handbook? I've already logged into My Oracle Support
and although the Knowledge base has some hardware information, it is nowhere as
complete or as easy to find as on SunSolve.

Hi Steven,

Let me check with my SunSolve and MOS colleagues and I'll get back to you on that.

Best Wishes,

Gerry.

Hi Steven,

My colleague Mike Brown has kindly provided me with the solution to your question:

"Go to the Sources pull down (to the left of the search box) and select Sun System Handbook".

I've tried it. Login to MOS, select the "Knowledge" tab, and there's a "document" icon immediately to the left of the main search box near the top right hand corner. Click the icon, select "Sun System Handbook" and then type whatever you are interested in into the search box, e.g. M3000.

Best Wishes,

Gerry.

Hi,

I want to know if there is anywhere a new repository for the SunSolve patch released.

In particular I'm interested on the following repository:
- https://sunsolve.sun.com/pub-cgi/show.pl?target=patches/patch-access
- https://sunsolve.sun.com/pub-cgi/show.pl?target=patches/JavaSE

Read a lot of negative comments about the transition but must say I like it a lot!
