Hello,
I have recently brought up my two old solaris 8 boxes and want to bring them all up to data, but it seems that i can no longer get the patch files as i don't have the Sun Contract Number?

I have logged into https://support.oracle.com/CSP/ui/flash.html

but cannot proceed.

Where do i get the latest solaris8 patches? Or what is the procedure to get a Sun Contract Number, I have the Solaris8 licence number that came with the CD

    Hi.
    Patches for Solaris from Oracle - not free. You require buy service contract for get access to it.

    So get Patches for Solaris 8 you neeed special say about it, becouse it's not coverd by standart premier support.
    ( Solaris 8 - extended support ).
    http://www.oracle.com/us/support/library/lifetime-support-hardware-os-337182.pdf

    When you buy service contact - you get customer support identifier ( CSI) that require for support.oracle.com


    Regards.
