Web server 7.0u3 is out

The new web server 7.0u3 (standalone  version, not the package-based version) was out last week. You can see the release notes at

http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/820-4848/gdutz?a=browse

and download the bits at

I tried the standalone version and it was installed easily , except I got an old linker patch,

109147-39 in my old Solaris 8, which I need to upgrade first before I can install the new web 7.0u3.

e.g. I got this warning in the middle of my installation,

The following patches need to be installed for the server installation to
complete successfully.
Patches to be updated: [109147-39]


1. Continue
2. Exit

   Enter the number corresponding to your choice  [1] {"<" goes back, "!"   exits}

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

It was listed in the 7.0u3 release notes,

"Incompatible Patches
Some incompatible patches can affect Web Server startup and cause the server not to
respond to requests. The following table lists such patches. If you have an incompatible
patch installed on your machine, upgrade the patch to a recommended compatible patch.

TABLE 3 List of Incompatible Patches

Operating System         Incompatible Patch                    Recommended Compatible Patch
Solaris 8 SPARC         109147-37,38,39 (linker patch)          109147–40 (linker patch)

"

So,  I looked up the latest at sunsolve,

http://sunsolve.sun.com/search/document.do?assetkey=1-21-109147-44-1&searchclause=109147-39

then  downloaded and unzipped  above,

apple:/export/home0> unzip 109147-44.zip

apple:/export/home0> patchadd 109147-44

Checking installed patches...
Verifying sufficient filesystem capacity (dry run method)...

Patch number 109147-44 has been successfully installed.
See /var/sadm/patch/109147-44/log for details

-------------------------------

 Then, everything else was the same in the installation process and all worked fine after a successful installation.

Give it a try and you should see the easy installation yourself.
