Solaris Crash Analysis Tool 5.3 now available

Hi Folks,

My good buddy and all round good guy, Jeff McMeekin, has asked me to let you know that Version 5.3 of the Solaris Crash Analysis Tool is now available to download.  This includes support for Solaris 11.

See http://blogs.oracle.com/solariscat/ for further details.

From my peer, Deb Smith:

We are very pleased to announce that Oracle Solaris Crash Analysis Tool, version 5.3 is now available on MOS.

With 5.3, functionally has been added to support Solaris 11, in addition to the previous Solaris versions (7,8,9,10) .

To download, login to My Oracle Support, https://support.oracle.com/ , and search for 13365310. Or if you prefer, from first principles: Click on Patches&Updates -> Select "Product or Family (Advanced Search)" and enter "Solaris Crash". Select the release as 5.3 and you will find list of patch numbers.

Thanks to many folks who helped to bring this about, with special Thanks to Keerthi Kondaka, John Harres, Dana Fagerstrom, Randy Tinkess, Ethan Rider, Fermina Quinones, Michael Bergeron, Monica Allison, Dolore Eccles, Teresa Chinn, Michele Van Doozer, Tracey Taylor, Beth Barrett, Steve Kent, Jeff McMeekin and Stefan Schneider.

Best Wishes,

Gerry.

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.
