Patch Presentation for Customers

Here's a Solaris patch presentation (updated August 30th 2010) which I hope will be of use to customers, partners, and field engineers.

It distills much of the information contained in this blog, including the recommended patching strategy, best practices, news on patching enhancements, background information on Solaris and the bug fix process, etc.

Patching isn't a one-size-fits-all operation, but I hope you find the information provided a useful guideline.

Comments:

Great! I missed something like this preso for long time. I'll point customers to it now when they again ask how to patch ...

But I'm still very sad to see that somebody @Sun has killed the application which was best for the kind of baseline patching ever: TLP

Hi Gerry! Great summary and rather complete overview about patching. I especially like page 39 :-)

Hi Juergen!

As you may know TLP is still on limited release for selected customers.

(For those who don't know, TLP or Traffic Light Patching is the patch automation tool used by Sun Services to provide patching services to customers. It's not a tool customers use directly.)

Best Wishes,

Gerry.

Excellent and comprehensive presentation of patching on Solaris. Finally, my boss will understand the 'why' ... I need a little 'extra space' to Live Upgrade :-)

Bye
