Important Notice for Ops Center Users

On July 29, 2011 Oracle will be making some changes to streamline the delivery of Oracle Solaris and Oracle Linux updates.  Most Oracle Enterprise Ops Center customers will not see any interruptions in the way Ops Center retrieves content. If your Enterprise Controller can reach the internet directly or via an HTTP proxy then no changes will be required. However, if you have explicit firewall openings to allow your Enterprise Controller to reach Oracle's getupdates.oracle.com site then you will need to add a few new addresses to your firewall rules.  

The sites listed below provide local IP addresses to optimize your content download experience. As such, you will need to locally resolve the IP addresses for each one and use those local addresses in your firewall rules. Because DNS IP address resolution can change over time, you will want to override DNS to always use the same addresses for these hosts so they match your firewall changes. The additional hosts that your Enterprise Controller needs to reach include:

  • updates.oracle.com
  • aru-akam.oracle.com
  • aru-llnw.oracle.com
  • aru-llnw-dl.oracle.com
