Patch Requirements For Solaris 10 x86_64 (10/08)

Hello All;

We are about to begin testing the use of installing SAP Netweaver onto Solaris 10 x86 (10/08). I have seen SAP Note 908334 and it describes use of a prior older version of Solaris 10 x86 (01/06). Can anyone tell me if newer versions of the patches described in this SAP note are included or need to be added later?

Many Thanks

David L. Black

    You can check using

    showrev -p | grep <patchnumer>

    if the patch is already installed. Most likely this is the case for the version you use so there's no need to update any patches.

    However, it's always a good idea to keep the system up-to-date, especially if you plan to use ZFS as filesystem.

    I use "pca" to update our systems (http://www.par.univie.ac.at/solaris/pca/) - much easier to handle than "Solaris Update connection" - and fewer problems.
