Solaris 10 1/13 patchset released and latest Solaris 10 Kernel PatchIDs

Posting updated June 6, 2013, with new Solaris 10 Kernel PatchIDs 150400-xx (SPARC) and 150401-xx (x86):

As usual, we've released a patchset of all the patches contained in Solaris 10 1/13 (Update 11):

We've also included an important post-S10U11 patch - 150125-01 (SPARC) / 149637-02 (x86) - in this patchset, which fixes ZFS Bug 15809921.  See Doc 1535270.1.

This patchset can be applied to any existing Solaris 10 system to bring all pre-existing packages up to the same software level as Solaris 10 1/13.

It is not the same as upgrading to Solaris 10 1/13 (available here), as upgrading will additionally install any new packages delivered in the Update. 

I've also updated my Solaris 10 Kernel PatchID sequence posting with the latest Solaris 10 Kernel PatchIDs, namely: 

  • The Solaris 10 1/13 Kernel patch, 147147-26 (SPARC) / 147148-26 (x86)
  • Post Solaris 10 1/13 Kernel patches have the PatchIDs 148888-xx (SPARC) / 148889-xx (x86)

Please note that there are no more planned updates to Solaris 10, so these latest Kernel PatchIDs - 148888-xx (SPARC) / 148889-xx (x86) - will continue to be used for the foreseeable future.

Murphy's Law strikes again!

No sooner had I written that Solaris 10 Kernel PatchIDs 148888-xx (SPARC) and 148889-xx (x86) were here to stay for the foreseeable future, than the integration of the SR-IOV feature into rev-04 of these patches made it prudent to rejuvenate them. 

So from July 2013, the Solaris 10 Kernel PatchIDs will change to be 150400-xx (SPARC) and 150401-xx (x86).

Dare I tempt fate again by saying these Solaris 10 PatchIDs are likely to remain the same for the foreseeable future ?

I've also updated my Useful Patch Related Downloads posting with links to the Solaris 10 1/13, Jan 2013 CPU, and latest Recommended patchsets.

Hi Sugandha,

Solaris 10 patch release is monthly, by the Tuesday closest to 17th of each month. If there's no new patches matching the inclusion criteria for the Recommended patchset, it isn't updated.

Please see my latest blog post, on blogs.oracle.com/patch/entry/solaris_10_patches_now_on

Best Wishes,

Gerry.

Hi Wee,

Apolgoies for my delay in responding to you.

The Solaris 10 Recommended patchset on MOS will always be the latest version, which is the one which is recommended to use.

The Solaris 10 CPUs (Critical Patch Updates) on MOS are archived copies of the Solaris 10 Recommended patchsets taken on the CPU date. So if one of these contains 150400-15, use can use that.

But the recommendation is always to use the latest Solaris 10 Recommended patchset.

Best Wishes,

Gerry.
