As the software license agreement terms were updated last week upon Sun becoming a wholly owned subsiduary of Oracle, customers who use 'wget' to automate patch downloads from SunSolve will need to login in once to SunSolve and accept the updated software license agreement before they can continue to use 'wget'. Please note that some popular patch automation tools such as Traffic Light Patching (TLP) and the 3rd party 'pca' tool use 'wget' and hence this notice is applicable to them too.
http://sunsolve.sun.com currently has the following message at the top of the SunSolve home page:
Alert: wget customers ~ Please log into SunSolve to re-accept the new Software License Agreement prior to running any wget scripts. You can also look under "Update Account" and refer to:
Step 5: Register for patch download automation
Check the box to confirm that you read the license and save the changes. Downloads will work as normal at this point.
