I'm delighted to announce the availability of 10 new free online patch training modules.
This is the result of a lot of work from those nice people in Sun Learning Services, the Install Revenue Product Engineering (RPE, a.k.a. Sustaining) team, and my own folk.
The modules concentrate on using Live Upgrade for patching, as well as providing background on Deferred Activation Patching, Kernel patches, and other useful information.
You can access the modules as follows:
- Direct link to the course: Book 3-10: Solaris Patching Best Practices: https://learning.sun.com/solc/tblocontainer/1179270477
- Link to the Sun Online Learning Center (SOLC): https://learning.sun.com/solc/smartstart
I think even experienced Sys Admins will find the modules useful in clarifying patching best practices and providing context and background information on the evolution of patching technology and best practices in Solaris 10.
If you don't like the online course format, or if you want a reference document to refer back to after taking the course, please see the attached .pdf.
Best Wishes,Gerry Haskins, Director, Software Patch Services
