How to analyze patch failures and other useful info

My colleague, Enda O'Connor, has published 3 more patching articles on Big Admin which I hope you will find useful:

I think the first article is particularly useful to help customers and support engineers understand what data to gather to enable analysis of a patching issue.  Even if you are not able to analysis the issue yourself, providing this data to Sun Support when you log a call will help speed up the issue analysis by Sun.

I've updated the links to point to their new home on Oracle.

All of the information previously published on the Big Admin Patching Center is now located on http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/systems/patches/overview/index.html

Many of the links in previous blog postings may now be stale. Either search for the title in support.oracle.com or supporthtml.oracle.com or www.oracle.com/technetwork or post a comment and I'll fix them up.

Thanks,

Gerry.
