New FREE online Patch Training Courses

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:

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.

Enjoy!

Best Wishes,

Gerry Haskins,
Director, Software Patch Services

Training for Solaris 10 Patching

Sun Learning Services are in the process of creating a number of patch related training lessons.

They've launched a blog, which contains the initial introductory videos.

Future lessons will be much more detailed, concentrating for example on Live Upgrade.   These lessons will be available on the Sun Open Learning Center (SOLC) website: https://learning.sun.com/solc/smartstart.
